Donna, I was very sad to learn of your Mother's passing. I recall you both from the days at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Martinsville, and of the lovely ways your Mother always greeted everyone. She was certainly a wonderful friend and always was happy to help others.
Take care, and know that your Mother brought great joy to all.

Hazel was such a sweet and funny lady. Always fun to talk with. She had a great gift to be able to talk to anyone comfortably. Loved that in her.
