Plenty of things occurred as a result of his own actions or choices, however; his life really was affiliated with misfortune and mishaps (no doubt that made him who he was). Luke often said and believed if it weren’t for ‘bad’ luck he’d have no luck at all. His Mom always told her children: “Sometimes life isn’t fair and doing the right thing doesn’t mean it will always result in things working out the way you wanted them to – keep being you & never stop doing what is right. Everything is either a blessing or a lesson.” This scholarship will be chosen the best way we know how to and for it to be something Luke would be proud of.
