We want you all to know how very sorry we were to hear the news of Aunt Hazel’s passing. There is no doubt that she will be dearly missed by all. You were very lucky to have such a loving mother. One of the things I remember about her is how much she did for everyone else. She was far more concerned about others than herself and took care of so many people in her lifetime. One of the most treasured wedding gifts that Rick and I received was from Aunt Hazel. She spent countless hours cross stitching a gorgeous wall hanging with our names and wedding date. It is very special to us. Although we know that you will greatly miss her, we hope you can take comfort in knowing that she is with Jesus and her beloved Grady. Our prayers are with each of you.

Love to all,
Rick & Theresa Mullins

When I was young, visiting Aunt Hazel and Uncle Grady during the summertime was always such a treat. What stood out most was the laughter and the love. Aunt Hazel would make these huge meals and we would all gather around, say the blessing, eat and laugh. For Greg, Paula, Pam, Chris and Heather I know how much she will be missed. You all were so fortunate to have her as your mother, the grandmother of your children, and great grand mother. She was an amazing woman that loved the Lord with all her heart. It showed in everything she did and the love she shared with all. Praise Jesus, she’s with Uncle Grady now!

All my love and prayers,
Vicky Ammons
