Todd and Scott,

We send our sincere condolences at this most difficult time.
We just became aware of your father's passing as we were stuck in Florida dealing with my health issues. We worked together for years at Camp Eberhart and I was fortunate to serve as an usher in your parents wedding. I last saw him in 2009 at the Eberhart 100th anniversary.
We also were not aware that your mother passed away last year.
The Luke family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Goodbye Dr. Luke, you were the best person, Doctor and friend, a strong Christian and a Republican. Thank you so much for the good care you gave Tobi and my other furry friends that are with you in Heaven.
Please pray for us.
Anna Maria and Tobi Buranello
