I share this story (link below) because it was such a sharp contrast to the wonderful support I received from my Lincoln Land Community College family following the recent passing of my father.  Countless phone calls, texts, messages, thoughts, and prayers.  Beautiful flowers, touching cards, money, and food.  This is a kind institution, filled with good-hearted people.  Thank you all so very much.  You are truly appreciated. – Judy Jozaitis Thank you from Judy Jozaitis
