I offer my sincere condolences to Mrs. Luther and her children. These folks were a huge part of my teenage life. My siblings and I grew up with their children. I have such fond memories of Mr. and Mrs. Luther. He and my dad use to visit together, talking over the fence where they lived as neighbors up on Ethel. He's share his Logan Banner with dad and dad would save aluminum cans for him. We know that Mr. Luther is in heaven worshipping our savior and that someday we'll see him again. My thoughts and prayers ate with the family.
