This Obituary Has 2 Condolences

  1. Leilani and Patrick Lutali,
    Reaching out to let you both know how very special your mother was during our time at NORAD together. From her beautiful French accent to her soft and gentle compassion whenever things got tough. I will remember her fondly. Sending my sincerest condolences.

  2. Leilani and Patrick, my wife and I really enjoyed our time with your parents in our Sunday School class at Peterson AFB. Many Sundays our class would go somewhere for lunch together and that was where we really had a chance to get acquainted. One lunch occasion stands out in my memory. Someone suggested we all say our blessing for the food together but each in his/her own birth language. The result was French, Samoan, German and English but all beautiful. We really miss them but our lives were made richer by their presence in the chapel. I’m sure you also have many good memories so cherish them.

Leave Your Condolences
