    I have such fond memories of Hazel (and Jim) as they led our youth group many, many years ago. Wednesday nights were a challenge sometimes, I know, but they kept coming back week after week pouring the love of God and His Word into us. Thank you Hazel for your faithfulness to the Lord, your family and the church. See you later, dear Friend.
