Every time I look at this picture of Hazel I get teary eyed. I knew her 48 years and I knew my own mom less than 31 years. Hazel was worshipped by all her children and I believe each and every one of them had something enstilled in them by her and their father that will live on forever ♥️

I'm so saddened to hear of her passing. I had the pleasure of meeting Hazel when she needed help herself. I enjoyed seeing her & we had many good chats when I'd come & help. I was honored to know her. My condolences to the family. Rest in Peace Hazel, you were very kind, & funny. I enjoyed our time together.

To Hazel’s Children, your Mom was truly a special lady, and I have so many fond memories of her kindnesses. I can certainly understand how she was the one always providing care for others- whether care was required for her husband or her children. Your sister Darlene and I became friends in grade school and stayed in touch for many years following our school days. My brother Bill and I were also friends with your brothers Danny and Glen. The Graznak Family and the Garrison Family grew up within walking distance of their family homes and I have known of the fine Garrison Family my entire life. Hazel married into the family and I have no doubt that she brought joy and compassion to all of her family. May memories of your fine Mom bring you comfort in the days to come.

Thank you Loretta, for cleaning this up .
In the delayed state of times we are in, I can't help but feeling an inadequate response to our mother's passing. I know all of us ,, our hearts are in the right place and we will celebrate her life and mourn her passing & even though I know she is well on her way in the presence of her family, graced in the glory of the Lord. I still feel a void of unfinished.. I never realized until now how important closure of a funeral can be..
Our pride in our mother, the wife she was & grandmother amazes me when she was the least prideful person I ever knew .
XO ❤️
