On November 10, 2020, Luke Philip Thomas decided he was ready to meet the world. He was in such a rush to be a part of our family that we almost delivered him at home. From the day he was born, he was our sunshine, our legend. It was love at first sight.
Our little Luke had the most infectious spirit. His smiles, soon turned into koos, which then turned into this heart melting laugh that would brighten everyone around him. He brought so much light and love into our lives. He was such an independent spirit. He always wanted to do everything on his own. He loved feeding himself and the dogs. He would pull the spoon right out of our hand and then flash a mischievous smile at us.
He loved playing Baby Shark on Alexa, sitting on your lap to read a book, playing on his slide and rocking in his chair. He loved stealing our phones and taking selfies. Luke’s giggle was the most amazing sound in the world and his cuddles…priceless.
He was our little daredevil. He would climb on top of everything completely fearless. He would get a new boo boo every week. One quick cry and he would be laughing and doing whatever it was that hurt him in the first place again.
He was the other half to his best friend… his older brother Logan. They made the best team. Logan is such a caring big brother. They loved being with each other. They would have had so many adventures growing up. But that won’t happen and we are left wondering why.
On February 21, 2022, our healthy and happy little boy went to take an afternoon nap and never woke up.
This world feels empty now that Luke is gone, but we know heaven will be fuller because of his loving spirit. That’s what we cling to now, that one day we will be together again, and that brings us some solace. Death is not the end for our little Angel Luke. He will be enamored by the newness of eternity and have many adventures in Heaven. We will see you again, and hold you again, and sing to you again.
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,
you make me happy, when skies are gray.
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.
