Letter of Appreciation from Laura Mikesell's Sister
To: Gateway Alumni
From: Gerry Morey - Laura Mikesell's Sister
Date: July 9, 2009
Thank you for your many loving cards and letters, good wishes and supportive prayers for Laura Mikesell during her recent illness. Laura passed away on Friday, July 3 in the Hospice at Forbes Regional Center. We celebrated her life in a service on Wednesday, July 8th and laid her to rest with her husband, Dick Mikesell at Jefferson Memorial Park.
I can't begin to tell you how much your words of appreciation and inspiration regarding her teaching meant to her and to our family! She did not get to read all of them before she lost consciousness but I did and they truly touched my heart! I had a number of them read at the Memorial Service. You will never know the mark, you, her students, left on her life; as did those of you who were students of Richard Mikesell.
Thank you for good memories, lasting impressions and for your productive and positive impact on the world through your chosen professions.
Storybook Corner - A free children's reading program
A complete non profit program. Michelle Taylor volunteers her time to make this successful program happen for the local children (birth - 9 years of age) of Elizabeth Township and surrounding areas. She plans, organizes, runs, began, and funds the program on her own. This program provides storytime, sing a long, crafts, festive activities, and snack free of charge. Also each child that attends receives a new, free, age appropriate book of their choice to take home and keep. She also provides raffles each event. She has 2 editions, the summer edition which is every Wednesday evening until the end of August and the school year edition which runs monthly from October until May.
Way to go Michelle!!!
