Hazel was a wonderful person. I always enjoyed talking to her. She had a lot of good life lessons to share with me. In the later years after Dale and Susan’s children started to school we lost touch. I want to send my deepest sympathy to the family. Jessica and Drew you are always in my thoughts as well as your Mom and Dad. You’re all grown but you are still my favorite adopted grandchildren. Love sent to all and may God give you peace and comfort at this time.
