In December 2011 Laurie's cousin Maggie suffered a serious stroke caused by a large clot in her brain that traveled through a hole in her heart. Maggie passed away at the all too young age of 26 shortly that same year. Maggie volunteered and was very active in her community. She gave so much of herself to help others. In her memory, please consider generously donating to the Eagan Foundation that funds community programs and high school scholarships in the area on behalf of Maggie.
