Oh sweet Hazel, you will be so missed. I’m going to miss your witty sense of humor, your genuine care for others, and how your orneriness reminded me so much of my own grandmother. I’m so happy you are no longer in pain. Much love and my sympathies to your family.

I am so glad I stopped in to see Hazel before she got real sick. She was always so eager to give a hug and always had a smile on her face! God gained an angel when he called her home! May you all be blessed and find comfort in knowing she's with Jesus. My condolences, hugs and prayers.

Hazel was one-of-a-kind. Her compassion showed in everything she did. She had a wonderful sense of humor. I'm going to miss that lady. I'm glad she had such a tight-knit family--Rhonda and Rob, Brenda and Scott, and Kyle, Kori, Brooke and Bryce. You made Hazel's life full. She loved watching her grandchildren in all their sports and activities. I'm glad you all have wonderful memories of Hazel. One thing I will always appreciate is that she took the time to visit my mom. Hazel would stop in for coffee and visit. Hazel had a heart for being a care-giver. She showed her love to others in the way she conducted her life.
