Knowing this precious lady was one of the highlights of my years of working at Woodland Heights. She will always hold a special place in my heart.

I had the privilege to be Hazel's pastor at Woodland Heights Baptist Church in Bedford for 3 years in the early 1990s. When I moved back to the area a few years ago I rejoiced to renew a relationship with this godly lady. ALWAYS a smile. ALWAYS a word of encouragement. NEVER a nay-sayer. She trusted in Jesus, loved people and was a truly beautiful, positive, constant soul. Heaven is richer, we are poorer at her absence. Well done.
