We are shocked and saddened to report that in April we lost a good friend and a kind man to COVID-19—John Carillo. John was a gentle giant with agreat sense of humor that he often hid behind a shy smile. He, his wife Helen, and their dog Hansel (one of three Carillo dogs) were frequent guests at our LI-DOG events—helping us set up and put everything away–and last year they became LI-DOG Pack Leaders, helping to lead our popular LI-DOG Pack Walks. He was generous and selfless, often offering to walk or hold Bailey for our colleague Joann while she was busy taking photos. We will really miss John’s kindness and sense of humor on our walks and we extend our heartfelt sympathies to Helen who is heartbroken.
