A note from Peggy Goetsch

I would like to thank everyone for the emails, cards, messages, words of encouragement, offers of assistance, etc, upon the passing of my father in December. I have been overwhelmed by your kindness. It has been a difficult month, but it is so comforting to know I work with such a wonderful, caring group of people. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness. – Peggy Goetsch

A Note from Jill Whitney

Thank you to the LLCC Family for all the phone calls, texts, visits, food, flowers, and overall concern about my well-being following my recent surgery and two hospital admissions. It’s nice to know that so many people care so much! My holidays were very different this year but I am on the mend and doing much better. Thanks again.
