FLASHERS

Remembering LUKE



.....by Christine Ross in memory of Lucas Christopher Ross 1979 - 2001

About one week after Luke died Robin and I were leaving the house.
I got in our Jeep with Robin and remembered
that I had forgotten something inside.
Robin gave me the keys and I went back inside.
While inside alone I said out loud "Luke, I miss you so much.
I need so much to know for sure that you are around.
Give me some kind of sign.
Make the phone ring or something, but whatever sign you give me,
make sure that I have no doubt that the sign is from you."
Well, I waited in the house for several minutes and nothing happened.
I walked out the front door feeling very disappointed.
Luke's car was parked in the driveway and had not been moved
or opened since the day after he died.
His car was locked and the keys were locked in the house.
I got in our Jeep with Robin.
Robin had no idea of my request to Luke.
Well, as we were backing out of the driveway, I started screaming.
Robin said "What's wrong"!!! I said "Look at Luke's car!".
The emergency flashers on his car that was parked, and locked, and had not been touched, came on.
Robin looked up and said "Oh, My God, Thank you Luke."
It was so amazing!!
We got out of our Jeep and sat in the driveway
and just watched Luke's emergency flashers blink for an hour
while we cried and thanked Luke.
We finally decided to unlock the house,
go get the keys to Luke's car
and unlock it and turn off the flashers.
