Though the threat of rain forced the event into the Navasota High School Gym, the weather was appropriately gloomy for the than 100 whose lives had been touched and changed by Plantersville’s Laura Imhoff who showed up to bid her the fondest farewell, including the young ladies of praise.
The mother of three and Rattler Cheerleading Mentor recently lost her battle with cancer at the tender age of 45. among those mourning her was Stacy Ross.
Navasota Mayor Bert Miller was one of several who spoke both of their memories of Imhoff and their grief at her passing, and the cheerleaders themselves offered one-word descriptions of her.
KBTX TV was there as well. Event Coordinator Lisa Wells told them she was both a good friend and an amazing creature, perhaps one of the most amazing God has ever created. She had a heart of gold and there was nothing in the world that she would not do for anybody, even when she was on her deathbed.
Everyone lit their votive candles afterwards as they stepped outside for a release of blue ballons into the night sky, followed by a benediction by Superintendent Dr. Stu Musick.
