We are so very sorry for your family in the loss of your mother. Mrs. Thomas was always sweet and kind to us Jones girls when we were growing up and we were visiting at our Nannaw's house. She always had a smile on her face. We have some pretty special memories with the Wolfe and Thomas families. That was a special time in our lives. We are praying for all of you during this difficult time and that God's strength will carry you through these days. It's so hard to lose our parents. One day there will be a sweet reunion and no more goodbyes. We love all of you!

Robin, Tina & Donna Beth Jones and family

Prayers to the family. Many memories of Hazel and Nana (Lula) running the roads, shopping, taking trips, or even just visiting together. They were first cousins, but most people took them as sisters. I loved Hazel! She was so, so sweet, and a good friend to so many. Precious memories of her and Lowell.

With Love, Bryson Hatfield
