my nephew Luke!! Love you Lukieman!!
The day you were born was a miracle,
a baby stronger than most adults.
You grew each day in the hospital,
fighting for your right to live.
Many hospital stays for weeks to months,
but you always came out stronger.
Your smile was worth so much,
more than all the money in the world.
heart was bigger than anyone I've known,
loving and caring for all those around you.
Your time here on earth
was short lived,
but longer than what doctors wanted to give.
You touched so many people and lives,
strength and courage you had inside.
Today the Lord decided to take you with him,
giving him the most wonderful
God rest your soul, my dear Luke,
someday we shall see each other again.

God Calls little children to dwell with him above,We mortals sometimes question.
For no heartache compares with the death
of one small child.
Who does so much to make our world seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling the
aged to his fold, so he picks a rosebud before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them, and so he takes but
a few, to make the land of heaven more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try.
saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye".
So when a little child departs we who are left behind
must realize God loves Children. Because Angels are hard to Find.
Rip My dear Angel Luke
My grandson Nayden Rudloph was a classmate of Luke. Our sympathy

I am so sorry for the
loss of your precious son.
and prayers r with u and your family from the crew from Fire Mountain .
Rebecca, although we have not seen each other for a few years, you used to do pet sitting
for us. I know how precious your children were to you. While it is very sad that Luke's time was so short, I know you
feel fortunate that you had that time to share with him and you have many wonderful memories to look back on. They will help
sustain you and your family during this difficult time. I know you have many friends and family around to support you. May
it be of comfort to you to know that you will see your son again one day, and for now he is at peace and safe in the arms
of our Lord. May God Bless you and your family and keep you strong.
Candy and Steve Bumbaugh
You have our sympathy and prayers. We will remember Luke as the little boy who
ran up the hill at our house dragging his oxygen tank behind him. He was really a special little boy.
So very sorry at the loss of your son Luke.
He was a fighter and lived his life, although much to short, to the fullest. He is now with Jesus where he is healthy, and
take comfort in the fact that you will all be reunited in heaven one day.
