    So sad to read of the passing of my friend and traveling companion....Lucas taught me so much about appreciating life and the gifts we all are given. I am missing him so much and will remember sitting with him outside on the deck on a sunny spring morning this week his smile, sweetness and questions!

    I remember Lucas from spending time with the Edwards family through swimming with Zach. I’ll never forget what a lovely guy Lucas was, with such a sunny disposition. Nor will I forget the love, dedication, and grace exhibited by the rest of the Edwards family when I saw them with Lucas. This guy was loved. My thoughts go out to the Edwards.
