Five weeks after being such a blessing to our world, Krete Kyle Lucherk entered the hands of Jesus as he passed away peacefully in his parents arms at the Baylor Scott & White Hospital in Temple, after being affected by an intestinal disease called necrotizing enterocolitis.
Krete was the first-born twin on Aug. 29, 2018, in College Station; 14 weeks early, at 26 weeks gestation, weighing 2 pounds 3 ounces. He had begun to make great progress; been bathed by his mother and consoled by her presence, chance to cry, the opportunity to feel the touch of his twin brother Kourage, and know the love of his family as he was held in their arms, including big sister Kaisley. He too appeared perfect, had the slender frame of his father, thick hair, bright eyes, long fingers and, according to sister Kaisley, "the perfect little feet.” Krete touched numerous hearts and was loved by many. He passed away on Oct. 6, 2018.
Krete is preceeded in death by his twin brother, Kourage Valor Lucherk. He is survived by his mother and father, Casey (Kyle) and Kie Lucherk of North Zulch; his big sister, Kaisley Lucherk; his grandparents, Brian and Renia Kyle of North Zulch; and Glenda Heins and Dwayne Burney of Magnolia; and countless aunts, uncles, cousins, various relatives, friends and a community who loved him very much.
A family visitation will be held at Day Funeral Home, 514 E Main St., in Madisonville, from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12, 2018. The funeral service will be held at Rock Prairie Baptist Church, 9085 Oxford Cemetery Road, Madisonville, at 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018. Krete will be laid to rest beside his twin brother Kourage at the Donaho Family Cemetery, 14606 Trellis Road in North Zulch, immediately following the service. Brother Olan Weaver will officiate. Serving as pallbearers are Klute Kyle and Keilan Kyle. Services are in the care of Day Funeral Home of Madisonville.
Krete's entire family greatly appreciate the Baylor Scott & White Hospital and all NICU doctors, respiratory therapists and his NICU Nurse “Moms.” They are truly a part of our family and helped provide memories that will last a lifetime, and will not be forgotten. The family is more than thankful for all the love, prayers, and support provided in any way from the community and world.
Some people only dream of angels, we held two in our arms.
