Dear Luke
I heard our sister Mary say
You mattered
You mattered to us

In 1974 when you were only 6 years old
And Daddy died
The bottom of our lives fell out
I think
You never stopped falling
Until 4 days ago
And Luke it's been a hard, rough landing
We will always struggle with that

If 511 was the nest
We all flew in and out of
You were our baby
The last of us to be born
The first of us to go

Here we are in this little neighborhood, Irishtown
Your apartment is right around the corner
This place where we went to school, to church
And many times
In and out of this funeral home

Jack and Mark & Matt are possibly thinking
It's Daddy's boy
You are now

Kathleen, Mary, Barb & I are possibly thinking
The same thing
We held you the best we could
Maybe now
You are back
Gram & Mummy's hands

Luke, we are so profoundly sad
I would only like to think
Through all the ups and downs
You knew
We love you

Your sister

Mary, Matt, Barb and entire Connelly Family I am so sorry for your tragic loss. Luke was a good man with a good heart. Just one of my fond memories of him was how happy he was when he got his 1st tattoo, long before it became a social phenomena. Rest in Peace my friend. Prayers and sympathies to your family.

To Lukes family,
You have our sympathy and prayers. Luke was a good person and loved our children. He always respected me. When my husband got home from hospital this year, luke washed his hair for him. He would also call to see if Rick wanted anything from the store before coming down. The world lost someone special and our family was lucky to know him.
