Luke was a great young man who brought light to every room he entered. Sherri and I were so saddened at his loss. So many memories of his time working for us. He was a top notch employee and a great friend.

Condolences to the entire family. Unfortunately due to schedules and logistics we have had to miss the services but know we are praying that peace would come into the hearts of all family members suffering this untimely loss.

There was always something interesting going on in his life, and he was quick to share his experiences with others. Please accept our condolences. We have been and will continue to be praying for his family and friends. May God be with you.
