My dear Luke, I miss you more than you will know. Your car is in the yard and each day I expect you to walk through the door. I have all our pictures hanging on the wall in the garage where you know I spend all my time. I love to look at the ones that show your happiness for life.
A part of me has died with your loss, as only a mom can understand. But I hold on to the loving, fun and happy moments we shared.
I know you are now at peace with our loving & compassionate God and one day we will be reunited in His kingdom.
Watch over us all Luke, we love you and miss you with all our heart.
Miss you so much, I hope that you are in peace and not hurting anymore. Not a minute goes by that I don't think of you. Wish we could of had more time together. I'm thankful the last time I saw you was a happy memory and I'll cherish it forever. Love Nicole.
Helena, Mike and your Family,
I am so sorry to hear about Luke. My sympathy goes out to all of you for this loss in your family. You're in my thoughts and prayers.
Helena, I was so sorry to hear of Luke's passing. Just to let you know, your family in Benton County think about you often and we remember all the great times we had working together. Keep the faith and if there is anything we can do to make this difficult time easier, please let us know. Please stay in touch.
Helena, dear friend, I am so very sorry to hear of Luke's passing and I wish I could be there to give a hug to a dear friend. My prayers are being offered up for you and your family.
My thoughts and prayers are for your family. You may not remember me from years back in Mn. As I work with people struggling with biploar I appreciate your sharing it. Hopefully others will not feel alone on their journey.
My condolences to the family. I carried your son on the school bus for a period of time. I feel sorrow to learn about past student riders that have not had a full life. RIP Luke....I remember you.
In Denver this summer, I got to see you glow when you talked about your family. Luke lives in your soul and he's part of the bright light you share with the world everyday. I'm so sorry for your loss and please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Sorry to hear about your loss. Thoughts and preyers are with your family. Rest in peace Luke.
Dear Helena and family, Jeff let me know of Luke's passing. What an amazing young man he is! I am sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you. God is keeping Luke close at this time.
Praying for your sweet family, Helena.
Helena, My heart breaks for you and your family. Over the years you have been so open sharing pictures and stories about your family and the many adventures you have shared together. Accept my condolences for your family and especially for you a dear friend to all. My prayers are for you and your family during this difficult time. Jeff
Helena and family, I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Keeping you in my thoughts.
Helena and Family, it was a joy to know Luke in high school. His beautiful smile lit up a room. My prayers and love are with you. ~~ Tj
In loving memory of Luke, praying you find peace in the days to come in celebrating the life of a young man whose memories will sustain you throughout your life.
Megan and Nicole, my heart is really aching for you in the loss of your wonderful brother. I had not heard from anyone at work that he had passed, but I noticed his picture because he looks so much like my brother who also passed away at age 29. Seeing your names listed, I felt so terribly sorry knowing the grief you have to face. Just know that people care, and although your life is forever changed, the sweet memories of Luke will eventually blend with the shock and sorrow, and soften the pain, even though that's hard to believe right now. Please accept my sincere condolences to you guys and your family, and don't be afraid to reach out for help and support in this terribly tough time you are facing.

Helena and Family,
You have been in our prayers since we heard. From the many entries your son Luke was a great guy!! Hold the memories in your heart. God Bless your family at this time.
Wishing you peace, strength and hope in the comforting closeness of our Lord. In Sympathy and Prayer. Parents of Rae Claveau---Marlow & Carolyn Bakken
Luke was always bright and fun to be around. I looked up to him. Seeing him and his brothers was the hightlight of my summers for many years. He will be missed more than he knows. Sending thoughts, prayers, and strength to Alaska and wishing I could be there to wish him a peaceful goodbye and an end to his suffering. Love to all of our family!
May your memories give you strength during this very difficult time.

You don't know me but I just had to comment on your courage during this very difficult time. In the obituary, you said that your son passed due to his illness, bipolar. Too many people are afraid and ashamed to list a mental illness or a suicide as a cause of death. Just putting it in the obituary has helped to normalize mental illness. I am very active in NAMI, Nat'l Alliance on Mental Illness. I've struggled with Major Depression for about 7 years. I can't thank you enough! When the time is right, there are many resources and support groups to help you grieve and begin to move on. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Thank you again for your braverey during your most painful time.
May the many happy memories unfold and heal your aching spirit through the days and months ahead. Our hearts and prayers are with each and every one of you these past days.
Joe & family,
Sending our thoughts & prayers with Deepest Sympathy to all.

Luke was a great neighbor for so many years in North Pole. We were lucky to have known him and the rest of his family. We will never forget his smile and sweet nature. Praying for all of his family members. Love you guys. Karen, Aaron, Kenny and Jeff Mobley
To Luke's Family,
My heart goes out to you during this difficult time. Please remember that God is aware of your pain and promises at Isaiah 61:2 "to comfort all the mourning ones." So HE WILL help you through this time of sorrow.
