  Sammy - Certified Comfort Dog
When Matthew Stephens met Sammy’s breeder at the 2014 Philadelphia Dog Show, he was hoping he had found the answer to his prayers. It was his son, Nate, who had the idea to get a therapy dog for the funeral home after seeing therapy dogs in use after the Sandy Hook school shooting.
Matt traveled to Ohio to meet the breeder and Sammy in November of 2014. There was an immediate connection and Matt knew Sammy was the right dog to bring comfort, healing, love and companionship to grieving families.
Sammy is considered part of the Stephens Funeral Home Family where he plays a key role in helping grieving families. When people see Sammy at the funeral home their mood changes immediately. Sammy has the amazing ability to put people at ease, even during a very emotional situation.
Since Sammy has joined the Stephens Funeral Home staff he has provided comfort to a wide range of people including children and adults.
It’s amazing how many people come to the funeral home and check in on Sammy. Please feel free to stop by and meet him if you are in the area as he will be sure to comfort you and put a smile on your face.
