Many thanks to my family and friends. You tried to make me comfortable in every way. Your telephone calls, cards, and food meant so much to me. Everyone who knew me, knew I liked good food.

Remember life goes on. Go enjoy some good food and Zydeco in my honor.

I Love You All!

Alice Faye Sowell was the type of person that always made you feel a part of the family. From the time I met her as an adult she was so very welcoming. I will miss her and remember her fondly. To the family Mildred and I send our prayers. Love you all very much.

I can not tell you what a blessing your mom has been to my mom. I am thankful and grateful for her love, care and concern she showed my mom. She had such a loving spirit and a wicked tongue! I love that about her...quick witted humor and honesty! She is having a party in heaven with beloved family and friends where the food is always on point!
- Rest In Perfect Peace!

I met Ms. Sowell back in the 1990s when we both worked at Harris County Sheriff's Office. Ms. Sowell, (whom we called 'Granny'), was a good coworker and an even better friend.. After her departure from HCSO we kept in contact. When my mother passed in the 1990s, Ms. Sowell was someone who I could always talk to and someone who gave me motherly advice, with a twist of I will miss our talks and even your fussing...Im glad that I got a chance to visit and pray for you in you final days.. I'm grateful to have known you and I will forever cherish our memories..
Wishing the family peace and comfort...

Rest peacefully Ms. Sowell💖
