So sorry for your loss. Hazel will be sadly missed. I'm sorry I hadn't seen her in quite a few years. But she was always very nice to me.

May God comfort you all at this heart breaking time. I’m glad you have each other to lean on and all those, like myself, that loved your mother. No matter how long we have them, it’s never enough, We just thank God we had them.
Blessings to you all. Tessie
