 To 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.
Your 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,
with your strength and courage you had inside.
Today the Lord decided to take you with him,
giving him the most wonderful angel above.
God rest your soul, my dear Luke,
someday we shall see each other again.

We are so sorry that Luke was called home so quickly. But the amazing years he had here gave everyone a smile who were around him or knew him. He was a spirited child who has become an Angel watching over us as he is now with the Lord. Our prayers and love go out to his family & his friends.

There are no words that can express how saddened we were to hear of Luke's passing.  Keep the memories you have of him near as they are the greatest healing power you will have.  Such a special boy.  You are so lucky to have had him in your lives.

I am so sorry for your loss. Luke was a good kid and kept everyone smiling.  I miss you Luke you may be gone but not forgotten.  I love you.
Jessica Lousie Steinour

When 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.
The 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
Vickey Little

My grandson Nayden Rudloph was a classmate of Luke. Our sympathy and prayers are with you and your family.

Our thoughts and prayers r with u and your family from the crew from Fire Mountain .

Audrey Segars

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.

Donna & Bob Martin

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.
