What a wonderful Lady. Like many I grew up at the rink. I was taught many life lessons by both her and Harold as a speed team member and employee. I believe Hazel and Harold are skating beautifully in Heaven. Loved Her!

Sorry to hear about Hazel, she did a lot for my children as well as my grandchildren . I've known Hazel for along time , we got along cause we were both stubborn and bullheaded . I remember us getting into an argument about something to do with the rink . she told me your just stubborn and bullheaded , my reply to her was have you looked in the mirror lately . She started laughing that's how we was . ,Hazel and Harold both raised a lot of kids at the rink . She was always down there for the kids . prayers to her family .

I was so sad to hear of Hazel's passing. Harold and Hazel sure did take care of kids that spent countless hours at the roller rink. Those were definately the best days of my life...my "skating family" i remember getting our usac cards and hazel typing them up individually for all of us kids. I am not going to be able to make the service as i am in Ireland at the time...my condolences go out to all of the skating family that have lost a wonderful soul but so glad she can finally be reunited with Harold.
