    We send our sincere sympathies to all of you on the passing of your beloved mother and grandmother. As Fr. Kevin said this week, Angela and Hildy are probably greeting each other in heaven! God’s blessings to all of you at this difficult time.

    Meridian IDI am the oldes daughter of Omer & Rose Martel. I was always told that I looked like my aunt Babe. The last time I saw her was at my Dad’s funeral in Bottineau in 1990. May her soul rest in peace.

    When we farmed up at Rolette, we used to go to Rugby for shopping or machinery parts. We would often run into Aunt Babe. She was always very nice to both me and Terri. May God Bless all of Aunt Babe’s family.

    I am so glad that I was able to visit with Aunt “Babe” these last years. What a lovely lady she was.
    I brought some old family pictures for her to look at a couple years ago and she appreciated that so much.
    Thank you God for my dad (Albert) having such a wonderful sister, and beautiful lady.

    Sioux Falls sdRest in Peace, Great-Aunt Babe! With news of your passing to Heaven, I have been thinking of wonderful memories in Rugby visiting you and Uncle Joe and walking downtown and stopping in to see you at the store. God’s blessings to Babe’s children and grandchildren.

    Fairfield OhioIt’s hard to say goodbye, but we are comforted by our many memories. One of our favorite is when we visited Grandma at her immaculate home in Rugby. While she was busy preparing goodies in the kitchen, Pat quietly sent our small children into her prestine formal living room with the visible vaccuum tracks that we NEVER sat in. Quickly, the kids ran a few irreverent laps, marring the well laid tracks. He signaled to the children to come out and then Pat quietly closed the sliding door. We laughed all the way home as we imagined Grandma discovering the children’s footprints on the living room carpet. We wondered how long it took for her to get the vaccuum and “erase” the footprints one vaccuum track at a time. Grandma was a hardworking and faithful woman.

    “What is this thing that men call death,
    This quiet passing in the night?
    Tis not the end, but genesis
    of better worlds and greater light.

    O God, touch Thou my aching heart,
    And calm my troubled, haunting fears.
    Let hope and faith, transcendent, pure,
    Give strength and peace beyond my tears.

    There is no death, but only change
    With recompense for victory won
    The gift of Him who loved all men,
    The Son of God, the Holy One.”

    We believe that Grandpa Joe was waiting on the otherside of the veil with arms wide open, and what a joyous reunion it was. Until we meet again,. . .

    I met Angela Hoffart when my husband and I were engaged in 1991. It did not take long before I was able to call her Grandma Babe too! While still living in Rugby she and Grandpa Joe came to Minot a couple times a month and they took extra time to visit us. They would make a point to stop by Perkins on my shift – I am pretty sure she planned that. Grandma Babe was a very special lady who will deeply be missed by family and friends.

    US Air Force Academy ColoradoI have no doubt that great-grandma Hoffart is in heaven right now. She was full of faith and love and I am glad to have had the honor of knowing her. Although she has left many loved ones behind in this world, I take comfort in knowing she will be waiting for us in the next.

    “At dusk weeping comes for the night but at dawn there is rejoicing.” Ps 30:6

    I love you, great-grandma.
