On Wednesday, Jan. 15, my sweet and precious 85-year-old mother, Dolores Hoffart of Dobbin, left this earthly world. I would like to thank everyone who either called, emailed or texted me with condolences. She was a very special and unique person not only to her family but to those who knew her. My mom had a wonderful and fulfilling life and enjoyed every moment of it. As much as we will miss her and her sweet and loving smile she is now where she has longed to be for many years. My mom loved her God and her church. As a passage in 2 Timothy 6-8 says: “I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith.” We now have another angel in Heaven to watch over us.
A 90th “come and go” birthday party was thrown for John Sowell at the Navasota Nursing and Rehab this past Saturday afternoon. Approximately 50 family and friends were on hand to celebrate his special day.
