My condolences to the Ronan family. At Isaiah 33:24 Jehovah promises to do away with sickness forever. One day soon we will not have to fear sickness nor our enemy death anymore. We look forward to these beautiful promises that Jehovah promises us in the near future. May Jehovah be with your family during this difficult time. For more information and encouragement that has helped me through difficult times such as this is jw.org that offers hope and comfort for the future.

I will always remember Aunt Hazel fondly, she was very loving and loved to tease. The pet name she gave me when I was a very young child was "mister Christmas tree". We laughed about that recently at a family reunion. My condolences to Bobby, Marie and family.
