3/16/14. A very nice man named Doug, stopped today and after I told him my story he told me he had lost his 28 year-old son Luke, just this past June. Luke was a smoke jumper and just after jumping into a fire a tree fell on him. Doug said Luke was so good at what he did he taught rookie firefighters his skills. He told of what a wonderful positive attitude his son always had. On the rear window of his car was a decal designed by one of Luke’s friends. It was a parachute and at the top it said, “Live Like Luke” and on the bottom were his dates of birth and death. Bless Doug. We spoke long and there were tears. We hugged long and hard. LOVE LIFE my friends. We need to be there for each other with the positivity of love.
