    This women hazel was a wonder dear grandma to me it's sad to think its been 2 years. If you've never meet her you missed out on a caring loving person that she was. 2 years ago it was so hard for our family but we knew that you weren't hurting anymore. And two year before you passed we got the horrible news that we wished it wasn't true. You stood strong and fought hard you were there when my mom wasn't and I want to thank you for being my grandma no matter all the fights we had I love you grandma hazel.<3

    I am so very sorry about the passing of Hazel! I truly loved her dearly. When i would spend the night with Joyce, I can still remember some of the stories she would tell us sitting at the dining room table. She was definately a cut up! Joyce, if you need to talk or anything, please give me a call!! Love to all!!
