    I have lovely memories of her laughing and of her saying when we were sad as over-dramatic teens “Never monshonk ponshonk”. All My Love goes to her.

    In the few times we met as a result of our close friendship with your two wonderful sisters Jean & Margaret, Hazel was always entertaining with her numerous life experiences. She came across as warm, wise and generous.

    May God Bless, Guide and Protect you always in your new life.

    I was lucky to be brought up around this amazing woman. In my eyes she was not a Grandmother, she was a close friend who always had alot to say. We used to sit around the table while she explained the world to me. Armed with a cigarette she could take on any man or any army who came close to harming her family. She was very funny and always made us laugh. She could heal and ache, pain or tear with just a speeze from her hand. She had an amazing life filled with family and friends who will never forget her. I loved her with all my heart and i hope she is resting with her loved ones. The world lost an incredible woman who’s memory will live on. xxxxx

    Our memories of Hazel go way back to Jerusalem in 1968. We were neighbors in the same apartment building. Oh, the times we had: dinners, darts and partying. Our kids were Hazel’s and Hazel’s were ours. She will always be fondly remembered by us for her friendliness, smile, laughter and genuineness. She was one of a kind and her passing saddens us deeply, however, knowing she’s up there with John, finally, and out of pain, somehow eases the sorrow.

    My parents, Clem and Beryl, and I, met Hazel, John, Helen and Sallyann in Jerusalem in 1970. Many good times were had, of course I was usually babysitting!, Hazel was always the life of the party and kept us all in stitches with her stories…as I remember. It has been about 20 years since I last saw Hazel with John when they were out here visiting us in CA.
    Will miss Hazel, but she is most certainly keeping ’em in stitches on the Other Side!!
    Hail and Farewell,
    Jo and Beryl Millgate

    Mum, I dont know where to start. Thank you for being the most wonderful mother, I am so glad that I was able to take care of you these last 6 months, I did my best, and to see how happy you were here at Lake Anna made it all easy. I will miss our shopping trips to Culpepper, and Goodwill. I am so glad you are not in pain and suffering anymore, I know you will look after me and the rest of the family from up there. I hurt, I am missing the mum you were before you got so ill. You will never be forgotten, and you will be forever with me in my heart mum.
    God bless you mum, goodnight.. see you on the other side…
