Luke's Skywalkers
In Memory of Baby Luke Watanabe
On September 10, 2012, we experienced the tragic loss of our baby Luke due to a cord accident. This organization provided us comforting books and supplies in the hospital during a time when we had no idea what to expect or how to deal with what was happening. We wish that nobody would ever have to experience this in the future, but hope that if they do, they will receive similar comfort and support. A donation in Luke's name will add to his legacy in our hearts and give his brief life meaning. Thank you for any donation, no matter how small! ~Jennifer and Jeffrey Watanabe and their families
