It is never easy to let go of the ones you love so much, especially when it is your mother. Yet, what a blessing to have had Hazel, your loving mother, in your lives for so long, as well as the lives of your children and their children too. Hazel's kindness will not be forgotten; not by family nor by those who met her. May the years of wonderful memories of Hazel comfort you in your time of sadness and may God’s promises give you hope. (John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:11, 29) My condolences and prayers are with the family.
