Although I didn't know Luke very well, I did know that he was a selfless and caring individual. Whenever we would attend the bandshell festivities he would always be there, talking to his friends and visitors. By posting the amount of money that he did, he showed his faith in his fellow workers : a thing that few others would do. I am sure he is greatly instrumental in the continuation of the success of the bandshell and there are many that are appreciative of his kindness. Thank you Luke : your memory will live on for generations.
