A ReStore Vest is Retired

Late last year, we lost one of our beloved ReStore volunteers. John McLaughlin passed away “at home, peacefully, surrounded by his family, in the warmth of the morning sun on November 18, 2014.”*

John and his wife Shirley have been regular volunteers at the ReStore for years, and John’s quick wit always kept everyone else amused. He was a lovely, kind man, and we will all miss him greatly.  In honor of his memory, we retired John’s ReStore vest and hung it in our back room. We’re so glad we got to know him!
