Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

I was texting with a friend over the weekend as they were making the agonizing end of life decision about their much-loved cat.  I shared a similar story with them and we both mentioned the support we received from Joyce Lachan, the office manager, at Richfield Animal Medical Center on that last day of the pet’s life.

 Joyce’s humanity and grace are a gift to our community, for which my friend and I, and I’m guessing many others, are very grateful.  She shared our tears and offered hugs as we dealt with our singular grief over the loss of a very much-loved pet family members.  Many thanks to Joyce for the gift of yourself in our time of need over many years.
