On Saturday, November 25, four teams from the LCC K-9 Ministries attended the visitation and service for Gregory Wood of the Leaf River (IL) Fire Protection District, who died in a fire at his home on November 10. His mother, father, and brother also serve with the Leaf River FPD, and the family lost its dog in the fire, too.
The family invited the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs to be present for the townspeople and first responder community, who came out in large numbers to pay their respects. LCC was honored to have the following dogs in attendance with their handlers: LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs Britta and Butch (Squad), LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Bekah (Immanuel – Belvidere, Illinois), and LCC K-9 Police Ministry Dog Shiloh (Christ Our Savior – Dixon, Illinois).
Please pray for this hurting family, community, and all first responders.
