Thank you from Janice Lovekamp

I would like to express my sincere thanks to my LLCC family for the cards and expressions of sympathy that were extended to me and my family at the passing of my father. I would especially like to thank everyone in the Health Professions department for the lovely angel statue. It is a wonderful remembrance and will be treasured. I am truly blessed to work with such caring and compassionate individuals. Thank you so much!
