    Mr. and Mrs. Russell, I’m so terribly sorry to hear about Luke. I’ve been living/working in Virginia for the last six years. Every once in a while I type in some of the names of my Coudersport students to see if there’s any news. Luke was very special to me and I wanted you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this sorrowful time. Susan
