I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I didn’t know your son, but I do know you talked very loving about your children. When I saw you since retirement you were always a proud grandfather. Jeff and Marlene hold your two dear granddaughters and remember all the good times with your son. My deepest sympathies to all.

Marlene, Jeff, and Kate,

Luke was a bright light and creative spirit who always wanted to make the world a better place. Unfortunately, he was taken from us far too soon. Until we can see you in person and hug you tight, know that we are holding you close in our hearts. Much love, Cathy and Bill

Marlene, Jeff, and Kate,

No amount of words can fully express how sorry I am for the three of you. No one will ever replace his presence in your life. Hold his sweet little girls tight and share lots of wonderful memories with them. I love you all and I will always be here for you.
