Single Father Loses Only Son

My uncle Richard Gates lost his only son Carson Gates on Saturday April 25th in a senseless and horrible drunk driving accident. As we help him navigate through this horrible time we are reaching out to family and friends for any financial support that can be spared. All funds will go directly towards providing support as he has been incapacitated by this tragedy. We hope to spread the message that drinking and driving is NEVER worth it.  Our family will never be the same again because of someone’s thoughtless and callous decision. Hug on your loved ones extra tight. Tomorrow is not promised. We love you all. Thank you ❤️
