LUKE

Luke Mayfield

A tribute to Luke from his Mom, Shirley:

“Throw some water on the fire, it’s time to go home, the hunt here is over.”  (unknown)

“I can see my Grandfather, dog whistle in hand, in a tree-lined pasture, running the dogs. His Setters, Lady, Doug & Tippy are running with my Setters, Jim, Rhedd and now Luke.  The sky is crystal clear, the air is crisp, and the birds are plentiful.

Handsome,
 Birdy,
Gentle Spirit,
Strong Character,
Loyal & Wise,
A true Southern Gentleman…
A Rock Star,
that’s how I’m going to remember him.

Luke came to me in the fall of 2003 from ACES. He was between 18 months & 3 years old. He left us on November 7, 2016. Little did I know in October 2003 what a special journey I was going on – if only Luke’s body could have continued to be as strong as his heart and spirit."
