May God bless each and everyone of you during this difficult time. Luke was just a cute and sweet guy. He will be certainly missed and we don't understand why things happen as they do but God has a purpose- we all need to trust in God and maybe we will understand this tragedy. Love you all.

Diane and Family: Words cannot express how I felt when I heard of Luke's passing. I had worked with his dad at S.C. Job Service from the time Luke was a very small child until my retirement in 2005; and I heard so many sweet accounts of things Luke had said and done. When I met him at the office, he was a precious blond-headed, blue-eyed little boy who looked like he could be very mischievous. I pray that God will take you all into His loving arms and comfort you during this extremely hard time. I have not had the experience of losing a child and hope I never do; from what I've been told, the only thing you can do is lean on God and He will help you through.

Luke, you were one of the sweetest young men that I have met. We had good and bad conversations and I will always remember them. You will always have a special place in my heart and will always see your blue eyes when I get down. Will remember you singing "Get Lost by The Lacs". Had many laughs with you, Conner and Cassie and will never forget. Fly High Baby Boy and watch over us. Love you always!!
