I cherish the time Don and I spent with the Wares! My husband Don is Judy's cousin and we travelled with them and her brother and sister-in-law several times! I especially love the trip to Ireland that was my first trip to Europe! She will be missed so much.

I have so many fond memories of living next door to the Ware family on East Brow.My parents,Don and Elizabeth,enjoyed many conversations over drinks sitting outside under the trees in the evening.l can still hear Tom's voice and Judy's laughter. Your family livened up the neighbor. Dear Susan,Linda,Tommy and Chris, I am thinking you now and the time we spent together too. I will always recall and remember them and hold them in my heart because your family was so dear to me.
