I’m sad to learn Luke is no longer among us, but it is comforting to know he walks today with Jesus Christ. Luke was such a wonderful person—so kind and generous, sharing his many talents with anyone in need, always so caring and helpful. I’ll remember his welcoming smile, his wit and easy-going personality, and his gentle ways--memories to treasure. May God bless his family. Love, Teresa
