Thank You Letter Received From Woman With Stage IV Lung Cancer Print E-mail
Betsy and Tim

On Thursday, June 19, Betsy and her husband traveled from Fort Wayne, Indiana to see LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Prince, Lydia (In-Training), Barnabas, and Isaiah at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Portage, Indiana. Betsy has stage IV lung cancer and her husband surprised her with a visit to meet some of her Facebook friends. They first heard about the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs when they were in Newtown, Connecticut, and have been following them ever since. We continue to keep Betsy and her family in our prayers.

On Monday, June 23, LCC received the following letter of thanks after the visit with the K-9 Comfort Dogs.

Dear Dan,

We made it home safely yesterday. It is impossible to tell you what that hour with Prince, Lydia, Barnabas, and Isaiah, you and Pastor Engel meant to us. What an amazing blessing it was. We cannot thank you and Pastor Engel enough for allowing us the privilege of not only meeting the wonderful dogs, but the two of you also. Your passion, commitment and faith just filled the room--and my heart. So, thank you so very much for the experience, but also for the wonderful cards (I have LOVED looking at them) and for my special stuffed comfort dog.

I have named the stuffed friend "Daniel." Daniel will accompany me to chemo next Thursday.

Daniel 10:19
He said, "Do not fear, greatly beloved, you are safe. Be strong and courageous. When he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said,'Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.' "

I feel so blessed to know God's peace in my life. My prayer is not for healing, but for strength and grace to handle whatever may happen with a peaceful heart. Especially the past year, He has continually reminded me of His unfailing love and I am humbled to be in His care. I am ready for anything but my greatest concern is for Tim and my children, but I trust that He will make sure they are ok also.

Ever since I saw the dogs during Sandy Hook, they have been on my mind and in my heart. With our golden, "Dylan" dying just 8 months prior to that, the comfort dogs just filled a huge hole in my heart. It is hard to describe, but my guess is that you have heard this before, so you know exactly what I am speaking of. So what a blessing to meet them, hug them, pet them, and spend time with them. I think I was (and still am!) a bit star-struck! These dogs and those of you who work with them are indeed to be admired. It is humbling.

In closing, it was such a joy to meet you and I feel like Tim and I made some new friends. We really do hope to come to worship with you sometime in the next several months. We will come on a non-communion Sunday and I will check in with you before we plan. (Tim and I were laughing on the way home that we would LOVE to hear Pastor Engel preach, BUT we would want to make sure the dogs are going to be there! We thought he would get a kick out of that!)

I am sending this email to you, but please share with Pastor Engel as well. I am also sending a few pictures that you might enjoy.

Thank you once again, Dan. Peace and God's Blessings to you.
