Arthur, Dar and Lizzie, I was so sorry to hear of Greg's passing. I told my Dad, and Uncle Benny sent you all his love.
My gosh, what fun we had back in the 80's when Greg was in his band(s) and Aunt Dora lived next door with Dar in the "twin houses." I spent many weekends with my cousins laughing and carrying on around Trolley Square and have always looked back fondly on those memories. I know you three (and your families) are devastated to lose your brother entirely too soon. As Aunt Terry said, I too, am sorry I couldn't be there with you to say 'goodbye' today. Please know you are all in my heart. Be well... hopefully, we will all be seeing each other again in person soon. With love, Cindy (Lou)

I knew Greg when the family lived on "B" Street in Carney's Point, NJ. The Nearys lived just 1 house away, so we all knew Greg. He was such a real nice kid and I always enjoyed his company. I send my positive Thoughts and Prayers to the McLaughlin family at this sad time. May he Rest in Peace.......

Liz, Dar, and Art. I am so sorry to hear about your brother, Greg. I remember— when we were all younger — thinking of him as the cool, friendly, and handsome cousin. Much love to you all during this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Lizzy, Darlene, and Art. So sorry for your loss. I spent a lot of time at Dewey Beach with Greg and I have great memories that I'll never forget. Greg was a unique individual, with many friends and acquaintances. He will be truly missed. RIP my man. I'll be your wingman forever. TommyK

Dear Art, Dar and Liz, I was shocked to hear of Greg's passing. I will keep you in prayer. I have ordered a tree to be planted in Greg's memory. I know how he so loved the outdoors. Greg is finally at peace with Mom and Dad. God Bless you all.
