Dear Editor,

Otis Gatewood and family want to thank everyone who helped make the benefit auction a success. Thank you to all the businesses, individuals and anonymous donors. You all have helped relieve the pressure of medical expenses, travel costs and so much more.

We know we will never be able to repay you all for your generosity but we appreciate every one of you. Otis wants all of you to know how grateful he is for your support. Our whole family thanks you!

Special thanks to Jim Doty and family, Kelly Cornell, John Gilmore and family, Dorothy McGlothlin and family, Melton Auction Company, Bill Lewis and Talon Broadcasting, Aurora Rural Fire Department and everyone else who donated time, money and items.

Otis and Cherry Gatewood
and family
