  2. To Lukas’ family, I’d like to express my most deepest heartfelt condolences. I never had the honor of meeting Lukas personally but have heard from many others that were fortunate enough to enjoy that privilege. From all accounts, he was a very warm vibrant soul that cared deeply for his family & friends. I can’t even begin to imagine the anguish you must be experiencing losing someone so young and under some terrible circumstances. Lukas is with the angels now shining his radiant light that will continue to glow brightly while he watches over all of you. Please stay strong through the rough days ahead on this trying journey and know that you are not going through this alone. May Lukas rest in everlasting peace.

  3. My heartfelt condolences to the family of this young gentleman whom I have never met. I read this story on the news and felt a heartbreak at such a tragedy. Only the Creator has all of the answers of why he would call a young and vibrant man back home. May he rest in the arms of loved ones.

  4. My heartfelt condolences on the tragic loss of your son. I don’t know your family and can’t even begin to understand the unbelievable grief and anger you all must be going through. But being a mom of an 18 year old boy who is also going out to nightclubs I am always uneasy and restless until he comes home. I just felt so much heartbreak for you. Your son had a beautiful smile that his smile was taken from you is unbelievable. There is nothing anyone can do or say to ease your pain but please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know it may not mean anything but I just had to say something. May faith and time bring some peace to all of you.
