The Luca John Foundation has made my dreams of a headstone for my son, Dane Jr. come true. I filled out the application for assistance and literally received a phone call in less than 48 hours! I was, and still am, in awe. I can’t thank The Luca John Foundation enough. My son’s headstone is gorgeous and far exceeded my expectations… Thank you Luca John Foundation for all you have done for me, my family, and for helping us honor and memorialize my son. I am overjoyed God led me to your website!
Loosing a child is one of the most difficult things I have ever had to deal with. My husband and I were never able to afford a tombstone for my son’s grave. The people at the Luca John Foundation were generous enough to donate the stone. From the first phone call the foundation treated you like family. They also offered to connect me with people who have been in a similar situation. Knowing that I have people that I could talk to really was a big help. I will be forever grateful!
Wow, I don’t know if I can put into words how much Luca John helped our family. We were devastated to learn our first-born granddaughter would not survive… the foundation reached out to us, providing answers to questions, a shoulder to cry on, and a headstone for my granddaughter… God bless them.
The Luca John Foundation was a critical partner for us while we were going through significant medial struggles with my son. They were able to provide valuable information and contacts during the most difficult time in our life. They were a great comfort and an extremely helpful resource.
If it wasn’t for The Luca John Foundation we would not have a headstone for our precious babies… We are truly grateful and blessed to be associated with such a stellar organization.
