On Tuesday, October 25, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Charity (Brookfield Lutheran - Brookfield, Wisconsin), Eunice (LCC Staff), Mary (St. Paul's - Janesville, Wisconsin), and Samson (Zion - Marengo, Illinois) and their handlers were present to walk alongside the students and staff at Elkhorn Area High School as they continued to process the death of one of their students.
Dwayne was loved by many, and his death leaves a hole in many hearts. The K-9s seemed to know exactly who needed extra love and attention.
LCC gave out two Hearts of Mercy & Compassion (HMC) to help share their grief. One was signed by the students and one by the teachers with messages of love and memories. Each HMC included Dwayne’s name to see, touch, and remember him.
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4
