I loved Hazel very much. She had a kind and generous spirit. I always considered her family and I believe the world was a better place with her in it. My heart breaks for her family and will remember them in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Charles or Dale as hazel called you!
I am truely sorry to hear about Hazel passing away! She was an amazing lady with such a kind spirit. I enjoyed working with hazel at the bank and became very close with her. She always talked very often of you and your family. Man how she loved those grandchildren! Everytime I ever see a chocolate covered cherry I will always think of Hazel. The Lord is near the broken hearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Psalms 34:18. May the Lord be with you and your family! One day we will see her smiling face again!
Prayers and Thoughts,
Amber Toney and Family

To the family of Hazel--I knew Hazel for 12 years--because we went to school together at Ellenboro for those 12 years--She was a kind person and very smart. I can never remember her saying one unkind word about anyone in the whole time I knew her. We of couse have lost contact, except at school reunions (as most of us have) I moved away from Rutherford county and most of my family are in heaven now, so I seldon return. But I have my memories and they are all good memories of our childhood together. God Bless you all. She showed me pictures and spoke of you foundly-especially those grandchildren, at the high school reunions. In Christ Love Dorothy

Brian and family,
We are so sorry to hear of your mothers passing. We know the heart ache you feel as we both have a parent who has left an emptiness in our lives. I am sure they would not want to return to endure the pain any longer but we need to remember though we miss her here; she is forever in the arms of Jesus. She has left an empty place in your heart but she left so many wonderful memories ... with family and friends. Though the "storm" seems so hard to bear at this time; just know we are promised the rainbow will come and the memories you all shared together will bring smiles again. God Bless you.
Thinking of you and your family during this difficult time.
