Hazel was a woman full of life and an inspiration to all who knew her!
Larry, Frances sent me the obituary of your Mother, from where I got the email address. Would you please pass on to all your siblings that I knew your Mother well when I worked at Drums Grocery for over four years as a teenager, and had a great fondness for her. I know she will be missed by her family. All the best to all of you!
David, from Santa Barbara.

My whole life is filled with memories of Mother. I wouldn't be the person I am without her and the whole Drum family. I will miss her daily. I love you Mother.

A loving, lovable member of this family has gone on to Glory. We can rejoice in her Eternal Home and the reunion she must certainly be enjoying. But today, we weep and we grieve because she will no longer be among us. Tomorrow and forever, we will remember our experiences - the memories we have of her and shared with her. As long as we do that, she remains with us as a part of us. We ask our Lord to give the peace, the courage - whatever it is you need during this time of grieving. We ask Him to walk with you and hold your hand as you go forward in this life.
