Luke Nathan Lawhorn was born on April 28, 2021 at 1:05am to parents Sam and Kelsey Lawhorn at WakeMed Raleigh Hospital. At 35 weeks, he weighed 7 pounds, 8 ounces and was 21 inches long. His parents were able to love on him for an hour before he passed away in their arms. The family praises God for the joy Luke brought them in his short eleven hours of life. No more pain or fear, just eternity with his heavenly Father who loves him more than we can imagine.
Luke is survived by his parents, Sam and Kelsey Lawhorn; brother, Emmett. Grandparents, Tommy & Becky Lawhorn; grandmother, Elizabeth Suttenfield; grandfather, Matt Suttenfield. Uncle, Caleb Suttenfield; and all the aunts, uncles, and cousins of Sam and Kelsey.
Sam and Kelsey would like to thank their family and friends, along with the many doctors and nurses from WakeMed Raleigh Hospital and NICU & Kamm McKenzie OBGYN, for their compassion and prayers during this time.
A private service will be held at a later date.
The family is in the care of Howell Funeral Home & Crematory in Goldsboro.
