As you all know, we here at Little's thought the world of Lukie. He always did such a wonderful job here and I was really sorry when he stopped working. Dad always said Lukie was such good help and that Lukie was always thinking ahead, what he could do next. Always a nice, sweet man and everyone you talked to said the same about Lukie. Everyone will miss him - Littlestown has lost one fine gentleman.
