Luther was one of a kind. I had so much fun and interesting conversations with him as one of his caregivers at the Highlands. I spent so much time with him that I felt part of the family. It was a real pleasure knowing him and going to GM games with him. I think we had a special connection and I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the family and also to his good friend Anna. Prayers and hugs.

I had the real pleasure of knowing Luther when he would come into the showroom at Progress Electric. I always knew when I heard his voice I would be in for a good story and lots of smiles. Always a gentleman, enjoyed hearing about his many bus and train trips. Luther was truly one of the good ones. Truly sorry for your loss.
