I met Luther years ago when several of us met for coffee at the State Restaurant and later the State Cafe in Harrisburg. He was always so kind and such a mild mannered man and always spoke of everyone so nicely. I will miss his kind and gentle spirit.
God Bless you Luther,
Most Sincerely, Newman Stare
