Tom and Jane moved several times because of work and family. They first lived in Westerly and soon moved to Ashaway where they lived a few years. Tom worked in a battery factory and Jane at the Westerly Hospital. Next they bought a house in Uncasville, CT when Tom worked at Electric Boat and Jane had two children. Several years later they packed up and moved to Arizona with Tom's mother where Tom got a job with a furniture maker, but Jane missed her own mom and after about a year they moved to Kissimmee, Florida to be near her mom. They bought a house with the money from the sale of their home in Uncasville and lived out their lives there. Tom and Jane both worked for Disney, Tom eventually becoming a Disney Bus Driver and Jane as a chef. Along the way, they made many friends. They were very happy together and you could see the love between them. They are missed.
