Letter to the Editor


Our family would like to send our love and gratitude to the members of the Weston EMS, Weston Fire Department and Weston Police Department and our Weston neighbors.

On April 29, 2023, at 8:40 in the morning, I received a phone call that no mother wants to receive, our 16 year old daughter was in a car accident. She was driving from our home to Weston High School where she was to meet her teammates for a lacrosse game. A drive she has done countless times. She was literally two minutes from our home. However, that morning was especially rainy and our daughter drove down Fanton Hill and lost control of her vehicle.

Thankfully, due to the quick response of neighbors and the Weston Emergency Response team, our daughter emerged from this harrowing experience with just a couple of physical bruises.

We would like to thank the neighbors who initially found Lindsay and comforted her and called 911. We would also like to thank the Emergency Response Team, not only for their quick and comprehensive response but most importantly their compassion and empathy.

Our daughter was lucky enough to personally know some of the EMS team that came to her aid. And the folks that we did not know treated our kid as if she was their own. This was the moment that solidified why we raised her in this small town.

We are so grateful to all of you for your service, your volunteerism, and your willingness to be on call at all hours of the day and night. We sleep better at night knowing that there are heroes among us. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

— The Gare Family
