Andy and I are heartbroken for the family. I (Tami) met Luke at the Atkins family reunion last year, watching him enthusiastically paint gourds. Quiet and focused, he seemed like a very polite and sweet young man. Heavenly Father is looking down on you and knows your pain. Take comfort in knowing Luke is resting peacefully in the arms of the Savior, and that he also, is smiling down. God's strength and peace, be with all of you.
