Hazel was the most caring person I ever knew. She took a genuine interest in your well being; you were important to Hazel.She was a sweet lady with a kind and gentle spirit. She loved God, her family , her church and her friends and let you know it. I will miss her but I feel comforted in knowing she is finally reunited with her Hank!

Vicki Joyner, Savannah, Ga

My prayers and thoughts are with you all. We know there’s a big reunion in heaven. Blessings and love to the whole family.

I'm sure you girls don't remember me. I grew up at Immanuel. Your mom was a beautiful person and I loved her dearly. Our last phone visit was a true blessing. Please know all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Linda Seckinger Walker

I'm so sorry for your loss. Please take comfort in the scripture found at John 5:28,29. There God promises to resurrect our loved ones who pass away. It is comforting because we all have been touched by this painful enemy at some point and it gives us hope for the future. For more information, please visit jw.org.
