In lieu of flowers, we would be pleased to have you support either SHARE (www.nationalshare.org), an infant loss support group that has walked with us the last few months or the Messiah Lutheran School Scholarship Fund (www.messiahnetwork.org), where Luke would have attended church and school.

Luke Charles Blackford, son of Bryan & Melissa Blackford nee McIlvoy was born at 10:05am on Monday, May 11th 2015. He weighed 3 pounds 4 ounces and was 15 3/4 inches long. Several months before his birth, Luke was diagnosed with Trisomy 18, a lethal chromosomal condition. Beating the odds, he entered the world with a cry, moving around, and breathing on his own. He was baptized in the Christian faith by his dad. After spending at little over an hour in our arms, he went to his eternal home to be held in the arms of Jesus. His brother John, family, and friends were able to meet him before he passed and we cherished our time with him. While our time with Luke on earth was short, the minutes we spent holding him were incredibly special for us. We look forward to holding him again someday.
