Dear McLaughlin family,
I met Jan through my brother Ed and good friend Roy Sanner at Franklin softball. I only played one year with him (and Jay); however, he and his family left a lasting memory as they were always together at tournaments. I always enjoyed playing with Dougie and Adrienne in between games while the 'older' players rested :) His kindness and smile were always reassuring and especially appreciated when we lost our good friend Roy. He would call now and then to see how I was doing! I just spoke to him a few months ago when he was trying to remember the name of a guy we used to play ball with. Afterwards, we caught up and shared a few laughs. I will dearly miss his smile and voice.
With Sympathy

To the McLaughlin family.....I'm so sorry for your loss and pray all the wonderful memories of Jan will always be at the forefront of your thoughts. Jan was one of the best baseball players at LHS and an even better person. I will always remember his infectious smile and his positive demeanor with everyone, and how he always helped Jay (and everyone) on the baseball field. He taught us sign language to better communicate -- we loved being part of the team with Jan and Jay. Wishing the family peace to bring comfort, the courage and strength to face the days ahead and the loving memories to hold forever in your hearts.
