    So very sorry for your loss. My heart breaks for all you both have been through in the past few years. Your strength has been an inspiration and witness of God to me. For I know through watching you that He really does carry us through the storms of life.
    Our family has fond memories of Luke since we first met him nearly 25 years ago when he became friends with our daughter Heather. He was such a good friend to her when they were teens. He would always smile and say hi whenever I would see him in recent years. He had such a good heart for people.
    Praying for you and your family.
    Love, Deb & Terry Respondek and family.
