LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Emma, Hannah (LCC Staff), Tobias (Lord of Glory - Grayslake, Illinois), and LCC K-9 Comfort Dog In Training Lazarus and their handlers knew they needed to be there for the students and staff at St. John's Lutheran School in Lombard, Illinois, after the sudden death of their 8th grade teacher Mr. Golz.
On Monday, the Comfort Dogs spent time with the classes offering the students the same unconditional love, gentleness, and care that LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Eve did before her passing last year.
The students filled the Heart of Mercy & Compassion made in memory of Mr. Golz with messages of love for this kind and inspiring teacher. Mr. Golz was a beloved teacher at St John's Lutheran School. He took the students to Walcamp each year to learn more about the outdoors to help them grow in their faith in the Lord.
On Tuesday, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs were also present to comfort and provide a safe and quiet place for Mr. Golz’ wife, children, family, students and friends at his visitation. We ask God to watch over and comfort his wife and two young children who will forever miss his loving presence in their lives.
