A Message From the Executive Director…

Dear DICC community and our far reaching community at large,
Thank you for the love, caring and beyond belief support that was and is extended to the children, families and staff at DICC as we experience the loss of DeJour Gandy. We are in awe of the words, thoughts and actions that have been provided individually and collectively. We face an indescribable, deep sadness and continued journey as we all process his physical absence. DeJour remains in our hearts, souls, and minds with love, respect and admiration.
We are all in this together, whatever your relationship is with him. The outpour of giving and receiving is true testimony to who he was and how he continues to be part of our lives. In trying to share those emotions and all that is on one’s mind, we can be at a loss for words. This is something that is understood – silently, openly or both.
Thank you again and again and again. Take extra good care of yourselves and each other – families and friends –  and please stay connected in ways that share support, comfort and peace.
Be Well,
Denise Gomber, Executive Director
