I have many fond childhood and teenage memories of Sunday breakfasts at Sittoo’s (Aunt Vickie’s) where Uncle Luke would often be with Aunt Madeline. He always made us feel special and we kids would enjoy the banter that he would often start across the table. I can’t think of Uncle Luke and not smile. “Which twin are you?”

Chris and I will keep you all in our prayers.
Cousin Ann.
