Dear Vivian and entire related Luke Family, My condolences. I was so fortunate in my life to have known positive Miles in my life. I have made a memorial contribution to Forsythe Avenue Beautification for one of the Redbud trees in the Forsythe Avenue boulevards between 6th and 18th Streets in Monroe. Sincerely yours, Steve Mintz

Uncle Luke was such an inspiration! One of my fondest memories while visiting our grandparents in Sparta Wisconsin, was hearing Uncle Luke, very early in the morning, yell "come and get it pancakes are ready, get in line! All the grandchildren would tumble down the stairs, sleep in our eyes, ready for our homemade breakfast and Luke's morning jollies. He was so much fun to be around. My memories of Uncle Luke are bright and happy.

Luke was a kind and gentle soul. I will always remember his wonderful smile, his can do attitude, and Christian values that perminates with each one he touched.

It is with deep sadness to learn of Mr. Miles' passing. I remember the Luke family when you all lived in Timber Trails outside of Tioga, LA and were all members at Palestine UMC. Upon moving to Monroe, I had the privilege of visiting with Mr. Miles while my then spouse and I were at dinner one evening. In all candor, he was a role model without even knowing it. I always remembered him fondly and even after relocating back to Alexandria, though of him often. He expected nothing less than excellence, and he lived life to its fullest. His priorities were never in doubt by those of us who knew him. He was truly a leader, a man's man, an authentic person, and a great family man. The world is a better place for his having been in it and the contributions he made, and it will be a sadder place for his no longer being with us.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I have never met a better man or finer gentleman. I feel lucky to have known him. I offer my most sincere condolences to all that loved him.
Diane Gaines left a message on December 5, 2016:
I met Mr. Luke in 1991, when I became Secretary for the Northeast LA Senior Olympic Games. He was such an inspiration to everyone with whom he came in contact. He served on the Board of Directors of Ouachita Council on Aging for three terms of six years each, with only one year off in between. He taught chair caning class at the Council, took our seniors twice each year on an adventurous trek up Mt. Driskill, started our "Golden Oldies Walking Club", and....well, made numerous other wonderful contributions to our agency. He will be sorely missed, as he was loved by all our Staff and Board of Directors. He was a blessing to us all.
