Don and I attended the 50th Anniversary of the John Alexander and Laura Hilton Sowell family reunion on Sunday at the Kimbro Center in Madisonville. This reunion was organized on the third Sunday of July in 1971, and has continued since then. The reunion has been held in various places but in the past years it has taken place in Madisonville. Like so many family reunions these days, the numbers are sadly dwindling but the pot luck dinner stays delicious year after year.
Mallory Kay Molitor, daughter of Michael and Frances Molitor of Anderson, fell in love first – then married David Palmer Kennedy, son of Nancy Kennedy and the late Moffart Kennedy of North Carolina, on July 2, 2021. The ceremony and reception were held at Stillwater Meadow in Aledo, TX. David came from South Carolina to Texas to get his master’s in music from Texas Tech. David is the Director of Percussion for the Godley ISD and Mallory is the College Counselor and Registrar for Dallas Lutheran High School. These newlyweds will make their home in Fort Worth.
Monday morning, July 12, was a sad day in Anderson and Grimes County. Our retired Grimes County Tax Assessor/Collector Connie Perry died suddenly at her home that morning. Connie was a long-time friend to many – more than anyone could count. She knew everyone and everyone that knew her loved her! Besides being our good and loyal friend, Don and I have so many good memories from all the days we knew her. Connie and Don always ran on the same election cycle which meant we went to all the political rallies time and time again. Each time before it was her turn to speak, Connie always whispered to Don, “I’m so nervous” and Don would tell her “just get up there and tell them you would like their vote and you will always take their tax dollars with a smile.” It became quite hilarious over the years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her children Danielle and Hershey, and their families, and to all of her friends who will have an empty place in their hearts.
