Pam, Chuck, and families,
We are so sorry to hear about Aunt Hazel's passing. We remember visits to Hazel and Danny's home for picnics when we were able to come to Md. for reunions--the food was delicious and so were the stories we heard.
We really appreciated reading the obituary. We learned things we didn't know, but were not surprised to hear. She was such a friendly vivacious person.
Please know our thoughts and prayers are with your families.
Richard and Cecilia Broadwater

Pam,Roger,Josh,Jason and families. Sorry to hear that Hazel passed away. She was a sweet and kind lady. I remember her from many years ago when you lived in the house on Springs Rd. Heaven gained another angel I'm sure. Prayers for your family as you deal with the loss of your mother/ grandma.
