When Guy came to Vermont he had sent me a request to rent a one room studio apt in Mendon from My husband Mickey McLaughlin and myself. I told him that since we had 2 impressionable teenage sons that I thought it would not be a good environment to move in an older young man. He asked if he could send me references from his Scout leader and Pastor and I said, "Of Course!" They were SO heartfelt and genuine that we decided to rent to Guy. He was an amazing young man and a wonderful example to my sons and all who had the pleasure of meeting or knowing him. He was an angel taken WAY TOO SOON! Blessings and strength to all your family and loved ones. Paula Lemay McLaughlin
