Hello friends. For the next weeks we will be posting a series of tributes written in honor Luke. If you'd like to write or suggest a tribute, please let me know. This one was written by Danielle Pyle.
Last night was the first night in 2 years we haven't asked God to heal our friend Luke. In some ways it feels like our prayer was unanswered, but the truth is, Luke is healed and whole in heaven now. We are profoundly sad to have lost our friend...one of my son Jude's very best buddies, but take comfort in the truth that because of his faith, Luke is in a place of no more pain, tears, or cancer. We are so thankful for the ways Luke loved and invested in our boy and that he got to meet sweet Everett. We will choose to celebrate Luke's life and legacy over this next week, but we will deeply miss his wisdom, musical talent, humor, and the gift of his time that he generously shared with our family. I want to be like Luke when I grow up...I think that means he had a life well lived.
We love you Luke!
When I go, don't cry for me
In my father's arms I'll be
The wounds this world left on my soul
Will all be healed, and I'll be whole
Sun and moon will be replaced with the light of Jesus' face
And I will not be ashamed, for my Savior knows my name
It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away
-All my Tears
