a past video from Luke's myspace:

The past 24 hours has been quite difficult. We heard that our friend Luke Gullberg's body was found on Mt Hood. Luke, and two others [still missing] had attempted a difficult line on the summit of Mt. Hood.
Luke was one of the most positive people we have ever met, and had a smile that would immediately warm your heart. If you ever talked with him, you will always remember his smile, and his head nodding in excitement.
Our confidence rests knowing that Luke is in a much better place, Heaven. He passed doing something he loved. Luke was an expert climber and his story will encourage many.

Please pray for his family [His father Rod, sister Becky, and brother Scott], and the two other lost climbers, Katie and Anthony.
