To Hazel’s family,
Hazel was a great neighbour when I lived across the road on Bristol Avenue. She was also a wonderful friend to my mother, particularly when Muriel couldn’t go out any more. She phoned her every day and often came over to share afternoon tea. We always enjoyed our conversations with her.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
