On Friday night, the Gonsioroski family released a thank you letter through Montana Sports. Of all things, the family that just lost their son, Luke Gonsioroski, after a courageous battle with cancer, is thanking people. For those of you won don’t know, Luke Gonsioroski was to be a preferred walk-on at Texas Tech and he passed away on August 7th after a second battle with cancer. Here is the Gonsioroski’s letter:
It is with saddened and humble hearts that we, the family of Luke Gonsioroski, would like to thank all the great people of the state of Montana and beyond our state for the prayers, love, and support during Luke’s courageous battle with cancer and his death. The outpouring of support across this state and the nation has been inconceivable. Thank you to each person, school, and organization for your words of kindness, strength, and love in Luke’s passing and the flowers, many cards, and generous donations in Luke’s honor to his memorial.
Thank you to Coach Kliff Kingsbury, the Texas Tech Football Program and the entire Red Raiders Nation for loving and accepting Luke as one of your own and for all the condolences and support you sent our way. Luke was truly honored to be a Red Raider and he could not wait to get to Texas! Your generosity has blown us away. We wear the Texas Tech logo with great pride.
May the faithful spirt of #5 never die, and Luke’s courageous spirit and his love for people and for the Lord live on. May his death not be in vain. As Luke said many times, “If just one person comes to Christ, then all my pain and suffering will be worth it.”
Thank you so much.
Charles, Katina, Hannah, and Hope Gonsioroski
It is amazing that the Gonsioroski family has taken the time to thank Kliff Kingsbury and the Texas Tech football staff as well as you, as fans of Texas Tech, for the out-pouring of support. The Gonsioroski family said that Luke was honored to be a Red Raider and without question, the honor was ours.
Go hug your kids today.
