    Dear Leslie, Sheryl and Paul (and families). Kevin and I fondly remember your mother from many get togethers, visits and happy occasions. She was a very classy women with a beautiful heart. We also remember coming to her house for dinners. Kevin remembers the days at Narragansett when his family and yours lived in Bea Chellas beach house. I feel that i missed happy family times. I wish i had been at the beach house with all of you. When we visit family at the cemetery i always stop and chat with your dad. And now we will also chat with your mom.

    Barbara and Kevin Dwares
