Grampa Luker passed away early Monday morning. He was 95 years old and had been in poor health, with a large aortic aneurysm threatening his life. He has been living with us since last March. On Saturday evening his aneurysm finally gave way.

Thanks to everyone for your kindness to him. He loved your visits. We are having a family and friends reception at the Russon Mortuary, 250 S 200 East, in Salt Lake, on Sunday evening 5:30 until 7:30. The funeral will be in the 29th Ward Bldg, where Grandma Luker's funeral was (1100 W 500 North) in Salt Lake next Monday at noon. We'd love to see anyone who wants to come and stay for the dinner afterwards.

Love to all. Now we might be able to come see you more often!

I am so sorry to hear the news. Even though it may have been his time, it is never easy to say goodbye. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I enjoyed visiting with him on my few visits up to your house.
I find that, as with our loss 13 years ago, understanding of Eternal Families is key.
Much love in your time of need.
Thank Heavens for the Gospel.

Ramona--I think that it is probably hard to have a parent die no matter what age they are. I'm so glad that you were able to spend so much with him this last year. I know that was something that was really a comfort to me after mom died, that we'd had all of that time together. I hope that your family is able to have a wonderful celebration of his life at the funeral.
