Funeral Therapy Dog Turns Sadness Into Smiles
** As part of this week's GOOD STORY series, OGTV introduces you to Lulu, a therapy dog with a calming presence that helps both young and old cope with the grief and sadness of funerals. **
Lulu is a very special kind of therapy dog. Funerals are an extremely hard time for the family and friends of a lost loved ones. The Ballard-Durand Funeral & Cremation Services is a caring and compassionate funeral home that guides families to a meaningful ceremony to honor the life and memory of a loved one. The owner, Matthew Fiorillo, realized the power his dog Lulu could have in helping people in their time of need. "People love Lulu," he said. "She's been a great addition to our team. She has an uncanny knack for knowing who needs her."
This Goldendoodle joined the Westchester County funeral home and has been trained for duty as their very own certified Therapy Dog. Affectionately called the firm's "Comfort Companion," Lulu follows the lead of service dogs often used in health care settings, such as hospitals, nursing homes and Universities. She provides families with unconditional love and support, as well as a subtle distraction from their grief. Just having Lulu there makes these sad days just a little bit easier with her helping paw and a lick on the nose.
