"I know this is the anniversary month of when Luke was killed. I know your pain is probably still deep. Mine is. I was there with him when it happened and still think of him and his children often. I used to give him rides to soccer practice every day when we were still in the states. Take care of yourselves and may God bless."

"To Mr. and Mrs. Williams, brother, sisters and children: I will never forget Luke, the many times he came into the store to chat a while, the time he saved my life when the guy came into the store with the gun, our endless conversations about the "Gilmore Girls". I spoke of him often before, but now it's different. I tell his story to those who seem to have forgotten all those still over seas. It's very hard for me to talk about because I want people to know exactly what he ment to me and how I feel! He is my hero in more ways than one. I think of you all daily and pray that you will have peace. God be with you! Love, Jennifer from Blockbuster"
