    To Rick and all of Hazel’s family:

    We send our deepest sympathy for the loss of dear Hazel. She was a sweet, kind lady and we will miss her smiling face. She and Uncle Jim always seemed so happy together. My Mom (Aunt June) always liked Aunt Hazel and enjoyed their visits back here to Ohio. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

    For Hazel’s family,

    Mike and I were neighbors to your Mom for over 27 years. I can’t say we neighbored a lot, but we always waved as we would drive by. I enjoyed your Mom’s video and getting to peek inside your life with Hazel. Two things I remember clearly… was frequently on Sunday’s there would be many cars at Hazel’s and I knew you would be having a family gathering. Secretly, it always made my heart smile. Family is so important and I believe Hazel realized that. I also miss her weekend “garage sales”….weather permitting there would always be a driveway of wares for sale. I stopped a few times and bought some of her treasures…..I believe your Mom had those garage sales down to a “fine art”. =) You will always miss your Mom, but somehow God grants us grace and peace and allows us to continue to tip toe through life and remember happier times. Remember your Mom, share stories and laugh and laugh often. Keeping Hazel’s family in prayer at this sad time. Sincerely, Jenny and Mike Harris

      Thank you so much for this condolence. You are so right when you said, she enjoyed her family. We had a celebration of life for her, we know she was smiling down upon us that day, she was a wonderful mother, grandmother, great grandmother, we will miss her so, but we know she is enjoying her life again. Thank you so much, we appreciate the kind words.
      Sincerely Linda
