Kay, As a member of GP, I simply wanted to pass this way and acknowledge your Luke's birthday today. My warmest and gentlest thoughts are with you, and with members of your family and Luke's friends, this day.
A candle lit in your honor & beautiful memory on your Angel Day, Luke.Remembrance is sweet, but so hard when they have left us behind.No parent should ever have to bury her child. It's just not natural, fair, or right.
This is the 6th Anniversary of your birth since you left us on your motorcycle. You would be 27 today. I still miss you so very much. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I'm so glad you were in my life and I treasure the time we had together when you came to live with me 5 months before you departed this planet. You are a very special soul. You cared so much about those you loved and would cry if one of your friends got hurt. That touched me so much.
I love you forever,
Your grandma "Mimie"

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LUKERS!!! Hope you sent your sweet Mom a sign to let her know you are celebrationg and thinking about her on your day. It was a very special day when you were born. Shine on! I will light my BD candle and sing this evening.
So I guess your fifth heavenly anniversary just passed. I heard about the accident about 4 yrs ago, i just wasn't sure if someone had been mistaken or not and i never heard anyone else say it BUT something tonight, told me to get on here and just check it out. 5 yrs later- It had to of been GOD because I just couldn't let it go but i'm glad I did . I haven't seen you since grade school but back then i would have considered us friends and definately owe you as much as to pay you my respects. Like i said , it's been a while , but i just have to say that I am so blessed that i had the privilege of meeting you- You had a personality out of this world and was definately one of a kind. Honestly, with all my heart i know you will never be forgotten......Jasmine

On Luke's 5 angelversary; I wanted to write a small comment into his guestbook. As a parent that has also lost his son; I know that these years get a little easier because we have finally accepted the fact that they have died and we will have to wait until it's our time until we see them again. But, I still cry each day for him.
All those that loved Luke while he was here on this earth; love him still. The missing and longing for him never ceases. I just acknowledged my son's 3rd angelversary this last May.
I believe what you wrote is right. You had a feeling about his cycle since the first time that he bought it. Knowing how many people are killed each year on them. As much as he loved his cycle; it is fitting. We all should be allowed to choose how we pass. I wish to pass doing my job as a police officer and not from old age. I wish my son had had his choice.
My son, Crawford, was 2 weeks from graduating high school in May of 2007 when he contacted a little known disease called, Leptospirosis. To read about this disease and of him; just click his thumbnail pic. Forever 18.
I'm so sorry for your loss of your son, Luke.
From one parent to another that has lost their precious son;
With only memories left of them.......

Kay and Angel Luke,
I wanted to stop by and let you know that you are in my thoughts today. 5 Years away from our loved one feels like millions. Angel Luke, please wrap your angel wings around your mom and let her feel you with her.
Dearest Luke, Tomorrow it will be 5 years since you rode out of our lives. I have missed you every one of those days. Not a day goes by that I don't wish you were still here. I just hope and can imagine you having a wonderful adventure and going all the places we talked about - and that makes me feel better. I love you so much, my golden boy,

Dearest Luke in the Light,
I sure miss you son....although you visit often, I just want to grab you up and hug you tight. You know that when I get to where you are, I'm not going to be letting go for a very long time. I can see you grinning at that thought. Thanks for all the songs and lights you have sent my way lately. The electric candles going on and off at all crazy times have been such a thrill.
Missing you on your 26th birthday, and will always think of that day back in 1983 when you became the best thing that ever happened to me. Christmas is hard...everywhere I go I am reminded of your birth and the following weeks when all you wanted to do was stare at the beautiful bright colorful lights. I have solar lights at all your memorial trees, dear son, and I know you are smiling at that. Have a wonderful time celebrating with your celestial friends. I can just see you and your buddies dancing and signing.
Love you my special Lukers! Your Loving Mother Always

Dear Kay, I am very sorry for your loss. Luke is such a nandsome young man, with such a sweet smile. You say that July 2 was the day you said goodbye, that was the day that my so took his final breath. I don't think I can ever enjoy fireworks again, or 4th of July festivities. Actually I don't know if I'll ever enjoy any holiday again. I hope that in time, the pain will ease a little bit and all of us who are griving for our children can find peace and happiness again in our lives. God bless you and your family. Luke, watch over your mom and send her some angel signs so she knows you are there. If you see Matthew tell him I need a big hug. With love and compassion, Nancy, mother of an angel named Matthew

"The memory of our Angels is with us each & everyday. The love we feel within our hearts will never fade away ((hugs))"
AT LAST I am able to get into Luke's memorial site. I'm having a great time listening to the music, looking at the pictures, and doing a lot of reconnecting.
Hello Luke, hello dad. Thanks for holding us close and keeping us protected.

Hello my sweet Lukers
I have missed you all day my son. I know you have been near, I have felt you close all day. I heard your songs, I have seen your numbers, I have felt your presence. I am so thankful that you are always near. Memories of you have been held close to my heart all day Luke. You spoke to me as a babe, you spoke to me as a young child, and you spoke to me as a teenager and a young adult...memories have been permeating my mind today my young and beautful son. As much as I yearn for your physical presence, I also feel your spirit close by with encouraging and loving messages. You are my rock. Only those who walk my path would understand your strength which brings me strength. Your brother is always close and very sensitive to your spirit. I am so very thankful that you have brought your essence to him to bring him comfort. You will forever amaze me, my young first born son. And I will forever miss you yet be most grateful for what you have brought to my life.
SHINE ON my beautiful Luke...eternal light of my life. I am blessed for knowing and loving you.
Wishing you and your fellow angels many holiday blessings.
Your loving Mom

My dear Lukers,
Oh how I am missing you my first BABY BOY. I know you have been hanging close to me these past two days. I just have to tell you how thrilled I was when I asked you for a little sign that you were near...and I got THREE of your "Luke" songs in a row that I could hear on the balcony from the tavern down the canal. You even started with P. Floyd's "Wish You You Were Here"...how do you do that? You always amaze me with your abilities. I have to thank you for your hand in bringing Michael's new pup "P. Floyd" into our lives...he has such a sweet spirit and we are crazy about him. I know you were with us today as we planted your new tree at the Children's Memorial Tree Garden. It is tall and strong just like you. Not to worry...we will be re-planting your original tree too. We will be able to keep it here at our home to care for it always and make sure those beautiful red blooms are with us always.
Loving you forever everyday...
