Mrs. Ware was my First grade teacher at Drexel School. If it is possible to say this beautiful woman was instrumental in all my successes in life. She encouraged me and all the students to read, read and read more, as did all the wonderful teachers at Drexel. My five siblings were blessed to have the opportunity to experience her kindness. I want her family to know what a wonderful person she was. I only wish I could have told her myself what a great influence she to me. Prayers to your family.
