Imagine the shock when I just found out of your passing. I will always remember you and your generosity. Your funny humor, demanding attitude (LOL) and love for everyone you came into contact with. It was a pleasure knowing you. Soar high say hello to Max for me. Watch over your family and your friends. I love you Hazel and until we meet again.
Your favorite nurse

You never met a stranger and would give your last dollar to anyone that needed it.
You laughed, loved and lived like no one else and made no excuses for it!
Hazel, you made the world a better place for being in it and there are so many that are thankful you touched their lives.
You have left a hole that will never be filled - and no one would have it any other way. We love you.

Who would have thought that back in 1963, I would have been so blessed to not only make a new friend named Hazel, but to still have her 54 years later. We have so many wonderfully funny memories together, from painting the Blessed Virgins toenails red in high school, to getting my front tooth knocked out by you know who, to sharing our 50th high school reunion together. Hazel was a true friend, who didn’t know what the words “me first” meant. Always, always there for everyone. My heart is broken and filled with pain. I don’t know what I’ll do without having her to talk to, laugh with or cry with. I must grieve her loss before I can celebrate the joy of knowing that she no longer can feel pain, is finally reunited with her Max, and is once again happy. I will take joy in knowing that one day I will see her again, but until then, I take great pride in saying....Hazel you were my friend, I love you and miss you terribly. Be happy girlfriend in your new journey, you deserve it.
Until we meet again,

Oh Hazel. You were about the age I am now when we met many years ago in Chicago. I was only a couple of years out of college and so lost when I found you. I do not know how to be an adult without you. You were my friend, my mentor, and my secret keeper. You were the mother I chose for myself. Whether I needed advice, a ride, money, a shoulder to cry on, or the simple joy of a deep belly laugh you were who I called on. You were who I called on for everything. Other than Mark, I was closer to you than any other human in my life, ever. Sam loved you so much! Everyone did. I hope you knew that, felt that from those you left behind. I don't know if I will ever be able to eat chicken schnitzel again, so you know this is serious :) I am so broken with grief I can barely breath. Just so you know, I am giving myself 30 days to grieve and then I vow no more tears. I will celebrate you and your amazingly wonderful and wild life. I will never forget the day we met. It changed everything. Thank you for 25 years of love and laughter. Each day I will think of you and smile.

Hazel Reid …
a friend to everyone she met! She often did without things that she needed in order to help those around her. I loved her no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is attitude -- she's an irreplaceable friend and there will never be another like her.
Rest in peace in Heaven, Miss Hazel … till we meet again ...
