What a small, but brilliant angel was Mrs. Gately! She would faithfully bring my father, Bruno Taylor, home from daily mass and make sure he was secured. She always gave me a friendly smile and a hug. She and her sons were faithful servants in making sure we had all the dry supplies for the Annual Gifts of Love Christmas Party. She will be missed by many, but we rejoice in knowing that she has risen to be with our Lord, Jesus Christ.
