All the volunteers gave many kisses and treats to Lorccan in the days before JoAnn waved goodbye to our Old Friend on May 7th as his van left us for a new career in Kentucky at New Vocations.  We'll all miss him very much but we know he'll be happy and will make some new, special friends there. Lorccan, who is 12 now, never seemed to settle into retirement. We wish him much happiness in his new career.
