Tribute to Luke

My little brother is entering the Missionary Training Center (MTC) on Wednesday so he can prepare to serve a two year mission for the LDS Church in Billings, Montana.

I'm gonna miss this kid so much but I am so proud of him! Not just because he decided to give up two years of his life to serve the Lord but because of what an amazing guy he has become.

In Luke's mission farewell talk he mentioned how he was happy that we are so close even though there is a large age difference (almost 7 years) between us. He also mentioned that I am an example to him but I want him to know that he is such an amazing example to me. Luke, you are selfless, funny, smart, nice, caring, and all around such a great guy!

[Ryan, Luke, and me in 2007... sibling love]

Luke, I will miss you while you serve but keep in mind that when you get back we are heading straight to Disneyland! With a stop at In-n-Out, of course!

[Luke and me in 2009 at Disneyland]

Good luck brother! Just remember that we love you and we are all cheering for you!

P.S. Happy Birthday!

He is going to do great things! I remember when Jake left he was having some out of this world experiences and I gained such respect for him. They truly grow wiser....way to go Luke! And yes, you are a good example to him...what a fun time for your family!

yeah that first picture threw me off, I thought he looked too young to be serving, unless the church was starting them young. Congrats, I loved that place!!!

2004 and earlier is when I remember him most!
