“You and my mom (Dotty) will be together in heaven and you can show her how to make something, change something or build something. [Y]ou were always good with that and I will always remember that,” Yasmin Gibson posted on Cates’s obituary page on the Wylie Funeral Home website.
A funeral is scheduled for Thursday at 10:30 a.m. at the Wylie Funeral Home P.A. of Baltimore County, 9200 Liberty Road in Randallstown.
