In memory of her mother, Lorna, a Hearts of Mercy & Compassion was presented to Michelle by Redeemer, Fort Collins, Colorado, home of LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Cubby & Devorah.
After receiving the heart, Michelle wrote a heartfelt note to LCC:
My name is Michelle, and I am the Social Media Administrator on Facebook for LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Devorah (Redeemer - Fort Collins, Colorado). The beautiful woman in the picture with Devorah is my mother, Lorna. On December 12th, she died suddenly. My heart has been broken ever since.
Today I received a heart from my precious friends and two of my most favorite canines, Cubby and Devorah. The Bible verse in the center Proverbs 3:5-6 are the final words my grandmother spoke to me before she died. On the back is my mother’s favorite verse Matthew 22:37-39. The heart is filled with heartfelt messages of love, hope, and peace. It is a physical reminder that I am loved and cared for even in my despair.
