The services for Luke Alexander Bresette will be this weekend.

Visitation is set for Friday, April 5th beginning at 5pm at St. Thomas More Catholic Church, 11800 Holmes Road, Kansas City, MO. The family will be there to greet people, and they ask that children coming for the visitation wear a shirt representing either their favorite team or one of Luke's favorite teams.

The funeral Mass will also be at St. Thomas More Catholic Church, Saturday morning at 10:05.

The unusual start time for the Mass is because Luke was an avid sports fan, and Major League Baseball games begin at five after.

Portion of Luke Bresette's obituary from the Muehlebach Funeral Home website:

My name is Luke Bresette and I am your son, grandson, brother, nephew, friend, classmate and teammate. My life spanned almost 11 years and I couldn't have been happier than to spend all that time with you. I loved everything about life. If there was a sport, I played it. If there was a game, I played it. I studied when I had to and I loved my teachers even if they had to occasionally get after me. I loved playing with my brothers - Joe, Sam and Tyler and my sister Anna. I loved being with Mom and Dad and asking them a million questions. I always told my parents I loved them and hugged them every night. I couldn't wait for recess to play with my friends and especially my cousin Eli. I loved to tell jokes and pull pranks with my friends and on my friends (anyone need 65 hamburgers from Sonic?). I always smiled because I knew it would make others happy. I was told I have cute dimples and I wouldn't argue with that...
