On Saturday, August 21, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Charity (Brookfield - Brookfield, Wisconsin), Mary (St. Paul's - Janesville, Wisconsin), and Rhoda (Prince of Peace - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin) were present at Bo's Heavenly Clubhouse Children’s Memorial Walk in Maryville, Wisconsin. The Comfort Dogs brought comfort to families suffering from the death of their children.
"We spoke with many families who had lost a child - the afternoon was filled with emotional moments and parents who wanted to share their feelings and stories. Several families expressed appreciation for the "comfort" of the dogs and their presence. A person always thinks of the parents, but there were many siblings who also suffered a loss. We witnessed a lot of courage, faith in God, and strength in these families. It was moving to see the "extra" love parents had for their remaining children after losing one."
