Dear members of Hazel’s family.

It is with great sadness that I read about your Mom’s passing. She was a very special friend. We served on Bristol Rescue for a very long time and even after I left the Squad, your Mom and I would exchange hugs when we saw each other in Town. She would get this special glow on her face when sharing the details of her various trips.

I will always remember her beautiful and gracious spirit

Please accept my condolences. I will add your family to our prayer chain as it’s very hard to lose a family member especially around the holidays.

God Bless you all

So sorry to hear of your loss of your Mom. May she live forever in your fondest memories. I will always remember her smile in the lunchroom cafe years ago and enjoyed seeing her at the band concerts.
