Ray & Family, so sorry for your loss. I remember Hazel and my mom sitting at the kitchen table drinking coffee and smoking up a storm. They had fun together and mom was so happy to be Hazel’s matron of honor for her wedding. They both looked beautiful that day (and you looked very handsome). Hazel when you see my mom will you give her a really big hug for me and tell her I miss her every day. 😢😢😢
