Prayer's for Miss Hazel's family and friends. I can remember the first time I meet Miss Hazel I had just started at Hands Of Grace and she welcomed me with open arms and treated me as if she had known me my whole life. I got to know her when I worked there and it was a pleasure to know such a beautiful, sweet and kind lady that had a smile that could light up the whole room and make anyone's day better if they were having a rough one. I will forever remember her and our little late night chat's. Miss Hazel RIP you will be forever remembered and missed.

Charles, Lynda, Mark, Teresa and The Family, It is with great sadness that I offer my condolences for the loss of Ms. Hazel. I would like to speak on behalf of the entire staff at Hands Of Grace, that had the privilege of meeting and caring for Ms. Hazel. She will be greatly missed. Ms. Hazel was a wonderful person and an joy to care for. She had such a sweet smile and appreciated everything life had to offer. Our thoughts are with you and the rest of your family during this time of bereavement. May God give you the peace and comfort that you will need today, tomorrow, and in the days to come.
