We want to express our sympathy to the family of Shirley Woodard. She passed away last Wednesday. Her funeral was held at West Oaks Funeral Home on Saturday, with burial in the Tira Cemetery. Please keep this family in your prayers.

The Woodard family would like to thank everyone from the Tira community for all the thoughts and prayers. They say, “We also are thankful for all the food and those who served the food to the family on Saturday. It was greatly appreciated. May God bless all of you, the way He has blessed our family.”

The North Hopkins Student Council, with Carter BloodCare Center, will be having a blood drive on Wednesday, May 11. The blood drive will be from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the North Hopkins gym. For more information, or to schedule an appointment to donate, please contact Dee Melton at 903-945-2192.

During the recent stormy weather, a large tree fell across Farm Road 1536 and members from the Tira Volunteer Fire Department cut up the tree to open a lane for traffic to pass.

Michael and Shelia enjoyed the Sunrise Service at Cooper Lake on Easter Sunday. Then they and Wesley went to Hawkins to visit with Sheila’s mom and family for a hamburger cookout. Those in attendance were Dennis and Patsy Powell, Robert, Sandra and Kyle Crawford and the Boyds. Sheila comments, “Colton had to keep the customers at Joe Bob's entertained at work and didn't get to go.”

Yvonne Weir and Edith Hedrick were treated to a meal at San Remo after work on Wednesday, for their birthdays. Yvonne spent the night Thursday and Friday at Dacy’s and babysat her “wonderful grandchildren.” On Saturday morning she went to Dallas and shopped with Destri until 2 p.m. when Dacy arrived and they went on the Hollywood Heights Tour of Homes. Most of the homes were within walking distance from Destri's house. Afterward they went to St. Martin’s for dinner. Yvonne reports, “It was a great day!“ Alice Hall attended church with Yvonne on Sunday and visited with the Weir family. Wesley and Yvonne visited Helen Weir Sunday afternoon.

Mick and Linda were back in Lake Dallas watching their granddaughter, Reagan Humphrey, play basketball. Their team won one game and lost one game on Saturday and won both games on Sunday.

Betty Lawson picked up Melba Lawson on Tuesday and they got out to enjoy the beautiful weather. They rode around in the Sulphur Springs area and enjoyed lunch at Los Mochis Mexican Restaurant.

Chip and I were in Shawnee, Oklahoma on Sunday evening and Monday. My aunt, Winnie (Horn) Lyon, passed away last Wednesday and her funeral service was held on Monday morning. Winnie was Aldon Horn's sister. Doris (Horn, Burkham) Moon of Sulphur Spring is the only remaining sibling from that family. She and her son, Doug Burkham, also traveled to Shawnee for the funeral. Doug and Chip both served as pall bearers. Although it was a sad occasion (and yet a celebration of a life well lived), it was good to visit with cousins that we don’t often see.
