Lily Marie-Mora: Special thanks from the Gates family

We send a great big thank you to all of you who attended the celebration of life for Frances Gates.

Your help to set up, clean up, provide beautiful music, a program, donating delicious food and money for the Ready Springs Library Fund was truly amazing. The sharing of your wonderful memories was of a great comfort and healing for all of us.
