It’s been a year since a house fire at 1 Scotland St. in Ocean Isle Beach claimed the lives of seven college students. Among the victims was Allison Walden, a 19-year-old from Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
Diane Walden, Allison’s mother, says dealing with the loss of her daughter is just as hard today as it was last year.
“It’s been very difficult,” Diane Walden, said in a phone interview Monday from her Chagrin Falls home. “It’s difficult every day.”
