Everyone,

I just talked with Luke at US Coach and found out that his wife has just been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Luke has given so much to the bus community and now it is our turn to do our part for him. He and his wife need to be in our thoughts and prayers during this time of need. His wife's name is Roz Bonagura. We all know that behind every good man there is often an even better woman, I have no doubt that Roz is that for Luke. Let them know that we are there for them and we will do whatever is possible to support them.

Laryn Christley


Luke has given permission to pass this on, please do.

Sorry, I didn't think about getting an address. I am at work now. Can anyone post an address for Luke and Roz?

God, that's awful. Should we all pitch in for a spray of flowers for her... or something? Any ideas?

Luke is such a great guy and friend to busnuts and the community.

Thoughts and prayers,
Brian

Luke is a true friend to bus nuts, especially those of us who own and love older GM buses.  On several visits to Berlin, he has never failed to make my friends and myself feel right at home among the collection of buses that are parked there.  Our prayers certainly go out to the Bonagura family.

Luke,
At times like these there is not much that can be said.
Our prayers are with you and your family.

If there is anything the BusNut comunity can do for you let us know.

Luke,
It looks like everyone is doing what we have to do and for special people in particular that are welcome in our lives such as yourself and of coarse your better half Roz.  We will all make special moments of thoughts and prayers for you and Roz which I am sure is what we all need to do to help you.  Keep us all informed, give Roz copies of these wishes from all around the country and sure the world in time that should make each day very rewarding that we are all pulling for you both. 

Let us all know on this board if there is absolutely anything more we can really do for you guys, all you have to do is ask.

Luke, as Gary, Jack and the rest of the guys here and the other boards have already said. It doesn't leave much room for anything different to be said by me here but please include me and Susan as well, as we both send our thoughts and prayers and offer of help if needed!

These same guys came thru and gave me a lift when I really needed it in the past and it really did help!

Here's to you and Roz!

Luke, you know we're with you both in your times of challenges. Of course we don't know anything more about the condition, but my closest relative has had an inoperable brain tumor for five years and keeps appreciating life. I hope your wife's condition allows her to do the same.

All the best,
Chuck

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you, Roz and the rest of the family too Luke.

Like many others have said, if there is anything Cat and I can do to help, you know the offer is open and waiting.

I wish I knew the words to say, but I'm not good at things like that. To me they sound wrong and insincere, but this time I want you to know that you will be in our hearts and on our minds.

There is a pretty good group here in the bus community and even when we have our little squabbles, we are all willing to pull together to help. Just let us know what is needed.

Luke:
My thoughts and prayer's are with you.  As  a country song says tell her to LIVE LIKE YOU WERE DYING.  That means don't give up or let it get you guys down. My wife did that for over seven years and even jumped out of a perfectly good airplane.
