Linda, I am so very sorry to hear about Luke's passing. The loss of your child is a loss beyond words. I know words aren't much comfort for what you and your family are going through, but if it helps even a little bit, I want you to know I care and that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I have so many fond memories of Luke, he was such a good friend and a sweet person. In all the time we knew each other he never could get the spelling of my name right, though towards the end of high school I think he was misspelling it on purpose. I still tell the story and it always made me smile. He will be sorely missed. My love, thoughts and prayers to his family.

I have too many fond middle school and high school memories of Luke to recall just one. He was one of the kindest and friendliest guys I knew. My heart goes out to his family in this sad time.

Linda, I am very sorry to hear of Luke's passing. It seems only yesterday that we were exchanging "kid stories". My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
