My sympathy to the Family of Mrs. Skolnik. We used to meet at "Lums" for lunch when Sharon, Joanie Schoonmaker and others were friends with Kimberly. We tried to keep up with what the girls were up to but do not think we ever succeeded. We were friends but never called her by Hazel. It was always Mrs. Skolnik. She was a true lady. I send my blessings to all who knew her. Patricia Donahoe.

As a kid I remember it was a good feeling when you got her laughing, and the whole family laughing together was the best. Sharon and Janice were good at it. Yeah, I'll cherish the times I had down the street at the Skolnik house. Good iced tea and Neil Diamond on the stereo. Many blessings to the entire family. Rock on, Hazel!

My family is saddened by the news of Hazels passing. The Skolniks were
our neighbors in Azalea Park on Japonice Dr. Orlando for many years.
Our thoughts and prayers are with them. Our memories of the fun we shared
so many years ago are coming back to me. Hazel had the greatest laugh and the sweetest smile. Linda was my best friend for years. I am sorry we
lost touch. Your family has great Faith and in this you will find comfort.
Know you are ALL Loved.
