She was always so welcoming when we were teenagers. Shawn, Freddy and all the others and I pulled so many stunts. She would just laugh and shake her head. I always felt like her house was a second home. I’m sad that I lost contact with her and Mr. McLaughlin over the years. They were such an important part of my growing up. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Mrs. McLaughlin was always around when we went over to hang out with Shawn (Beav). She had a great laugh and had incredible patience for all of our teenage shenanigans. My condolences and prayers go out to her family.
