On Wednesday, August 28, LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs Brutus (LCC Staff) and Nigel (LCC Staff) were honored to serve at the visitation and funeral of Lloyd Green. Lloyd was a World War II Veteran and former columnist for the Chicago Sun Times.
Lloyd’s granddaughter, Becky, had this to say about the Kare 9s visit: "I cannot express in words how wonderful it was to have Nigel, Brutus, and veterans Jim and Gene at my grandpa’s services today. Jim and Gene were kind and supportive. Everyone truly appreciated all of their presence. The K-9s offered comfort to my mom and my 95 year-old grandma, who was my grandpa’s bride of 67 years."
