Luke, Happy 23rd Birthday. I found a poem that sounded like your sentiments to all of us still grieving over your absence. I am taking the liberty of sending it from you to us.

Take Each Day One at a Time

One day at a time- this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering. Ida Scott Taylor

Luke, you are now and forever the present. Hugs and Kisses, Carol

Dearest Luke,

Happy Birthday! You're always in my heart and thoughts. Forever. So let's party tonight. I'd better see you.

Happy 23rd.

Dearest Luke,precious grandson, firstborn grandchild,

I miss you so very much and you know how much I love you. I am so grateful that you lived with me the last 5 months of your time on Earth. Those 5 months are more precious to me than words can express and I am so very glad I had that time with you.

Memories of the day you were born have been flooding in on me all week and reading your memorial and seeing the pictures has been filling my heart to overflowing. Your mom has done such a beautiful job and I love her so much too. She is awesome and I often wonder where she came from. I am so blessed to have her for a daughter and you and Michael for grandsons. Thank you, Kay.

My heart is so full today and I can't express all that is in it. I have felt that you were at peace since I was told that you had been taken up to Heaven by your angels and I am grateful for that. I look forward to the day that I will see your bright and shining face again, my golden boy. I hope you come visit me some more. Always and forever, your "Mimie"

Dearest Lukie James,

When you were small, I will never forget the sweetness of hearing you tell people your name. "I'm Lukie James FlorNen" you would say so proudly.

I am so proud too, my son. You accomplished many wonderful things in your time here with us. Most of all we shared deep love for each other, and it is comforting to know that our love will remain strong forever. We may not get any new memories together here on earth, but I can take the rest of my life to enjoy all the many wonderful ones we made in those 21.5 years.

Hard to believe that at this very moment 23 years ago, you and I were still working hard to bring you into this world. Had the times been different as they are now, we would have bypassed a lot of that and you would have been born on Dec. 9th. But Luke, Dec. 10th is YOUR special day and it was worth all that work for both of us. We really experienced a lot of life together and I am thankful for every second.

We have some great plans to celebrate with you tomorrow, Luke. Please try not to grab the balloons away too soon, ok? And don't laugh too hard at Michael and I as we play our special song for you at the tree. We'll be doing our best! But, I can see you laughing already....

Shine brightly my dear son....my most precious Luke in the Light.

Your loving Mother misses you and wouldn't mind waking up tomorrow with the lamp on again same as it was on your birthday last year. I know, it's YOUR birthday, but I wouldn't mind a little gift too. Or an Angel Hug???

Many kisses and hugs to my son in heaven.

Bunches of Love, YOUR ETERNAL Mother

Hi Luke, Well it's Birthday Time again, hope you will have a great party tomorrow. I'll be thinking of you having all the great angels dancing and having a wonderful time.

Love You Sweetie, Terrie (Joey's Mom)

Hi Luke! Just stopping by to see your smiling face and let you know I'm thinking about you and your Mom this week. I hope you have a wonderful birthday in Heaven. Keep on smiling, Luke! Love, Susan

Dearest Luke,

As usual, I am missing you today. You sure loved a good turkey dinner and how I would be working myself ragged to prepare one for you if only you could stop by and eat with us.

I want the world to know how THANKFUL I am that you have been a part of my life. You have always been such abounding energy and between that and the LOVE you have had for your family, my life has been so blessed. As much as I miss you, I would never have changed a thing. I cherish every memory and moment we ever shared. THANK you for being my son for 21 1/2 years.

We'll have a little extra turkey and dressing for you today my sweet son. Please show us you are with us today by sending one of your typical creative and unique signs.

Loving you as big as always, Your Forever Mom

I have cried soft tears as I have visited Luke´s site. I am sure he would be so very proud of it and knows all about it up in Heaven. The celebration of his 1st Heaven Date suited him so well, for altough many stangers read this touching tribute, after visited it for a while you feel so much that you also know special Luke and almost can know the things he loved most. He will live forever in the hearts of all that love and miss him so.

The pictures of the mountains of Montana are so beautiful, I do not know if you know that Montana in Spanish means "Mountain" (Montaņa), now I know why.

Oh my dear. My heart aches for your loss. Luke is gorgeous...as was his zest for life. We don't know why they leave. I for one believe that only their earthly bodies leave. Love and my wishes for Peace for you...eventually.

Dear Luke,

Although you never met me, I know you and the hearts you hold within you. I met your Mom some time ago, as my son is with you on your journey. I just wish this wasn't so. I light a candle on your "Angel's Day", but it didn't take your mother's pain away, this I know for sure. We celebrate the milestones in your life on this plane, but deep within our soles we cry because our lives together were still new. There will always be a place for you Luke, it's a place we call a hole, yet it's always filled with our love for you and our wish that this just was'nt true. As time moves closer to our joining you, we will be at peace for we will all be together again. Send your mother a gentle breeze and wrap your arms around her, she'll know it's you Luke and she'll smile. Until we meet. Gentle Breezes.

Dear Kay and Michael, What a wonderful tribute to Luke's 1st anniversary in his new home, Heaven, with God and all the other wonderful angels. I'm sure he was there with all of you as we were in spirit and thought. I always say that gust of wind has the most perfect timing and I truly believe that it's our beautiful angels coming to share the moment with us. Love to both of you and to Luke as he and Krista do their wonderful work with Our Lord. Hoping to see you soon. Your always in our prayers and our thoughts. Love, Kathy

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. You did such a wonderful job. I was amazed about the songs, it was like Luke knew it was his time. Just like Courtney.

08-10-2006 9:46 PM -- By: Tami-Angel Ryan Hook,  From: Michigan  

Kay- What a beautiful memorial you had for your angel Luke's first anniversary of passing thank you so much for sharing. We were so blessed to have such great sons who will be remembered forever. There is a special bond between a mother and her son like no other. Thank you for being such a big part of our support group that really does help us when we wonder if we can keep going. Bless you and Michael always.

Dear Luke, What a beautiful memorial that your Mom has created. I especially love the picture of the picnic table where you carved your name. My Corrina and I used to do that eveywhere we camped. You are an amazing young man and I'm very glad I've come to visit and got to know you. Send lots of love and signs to your Mom. We Mom's miss our babies so much!

Love, Michelle--Rina's Mom

Dear Luke,

I know you are as proud of your mom as she is of you. What a beautiful tribute your mom prepared for the first anniversary of your heaven day. It's so nice to see all of your family and friends there to share their memories and support your mom and Michael. And of course, I'm sure you were there to, fooling around with the balloons. My prayers are with you, Luke, and your loving family.

Love, Helene

Kay, what a beautiful first memorial you created for Luke. I can feel the love and pride you have for your son through the pictures, the songs and the words. I know that Luke's spirit is with you and I hope that gives you some peace.

I am sure that Amy and Luke are heaven friends...

May G-d bless you and yours.
