LCC K-9 Comfort Dog® Ministry received a request from Dyanna Kadrich, Director of Student Services from DeForest High School, Wisconsin, for Monday, October 16.
A beloved staff member, Jan Williams, from DeForest High School, is expected to pass away in the coming days. Jan recently retired after teaching for 30 years yet remained active in the school community, subbing at the school and serving as the drama coach. She was directing the school play and was just with the students on Friday.
LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Charity (Brookfield Lutheran - Brookfield, Wisconsin) and Mary (St. Paul's - Janesville, Wisconsin), and their teams immediately responded to the call to be there with the students and staff as they absorbed this sudden and unexpected loss. The students felt the love and support of the teams, who offered them a safe place to share their emotions.
