Alan Bates' Ashes
Alan Bate's ashes were interred next to his parents and grandparents graves in the Bates family plot in beautiful Cave Hill Cemetary yesterday. It was a small mostly secular ceremony, unfortunately Alan's widow Rita, who is now residing at the home of their youngest daughter, was unable to attend.
The Bates family plot is located about equal distance between the McBride and Howard family grave sites so Alan will be in good company.

Memorial Contributions to the Howard Museum
Each mail delivery brings memorial contributions to the Howard Steamboat Museum in tribute to Alan. It is very gratifying to us and we sincerely appreciate the family designating the museum as the recipient for these gifts.

If anyone wishes to contribute, here is the address:

Howard Steamboat Museum
1101 East Market Street
P.O. Box 606
Jeffersonville, IN 47131-0606

Thanks so much!

"Curator Keith"
