Luke and I played baseball for Paulsboro H.S. all (4) years ... I'm so sorry for your loss and wish you and all his family, friends and loved ones the Choicest of God's Blessings! Luke was the kindest kid I'd ever met; always had a nice word to share with me and his team mates. Heaven is now going to enjoy his love and passion for the Game we loved ... Bless his Soul, rest in peace and until we meet again ... "Loved you brother, I'll miss you"
