  1. Hazel, my sweet sister-in-law, I will so miss your kind heart and support. We made great memories with Parker & John. I’m sure they are enjoying welcoming you to their Heavenly home.

    Shannon, Brad, Whitt, & Families: my prayers are with you during these sorrow-filled days ahead. I trust the memories will fill your hearts instead.

  2. I’m so very sorry for the loss of this lovely woman. She had a heart of gold and was a blessing to many. Shannon, you’ve been a rock for so many years and I know the load was sometimes very heavy. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss and know you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. Dear Shannon, Brad and Whit,
    We were so sorry to read of Hazel’s death in the Dallas News. Brad did send her phone number to Gary, and I talked to her 2 or 3 months ago and realized she was not well. The years you lived in Athens were some of the best of times and I have really missed having her as “ my best friend” after you moved to Dallas. Please know that we are thinking of you.
    With love to all…..

  4. Shannon, we just learned of our sweet Hazels death. We wish we would have known. We are sorry to learn this too late to attend the services. Bob said he just spoke with her last week or so and she sounded great. So sorry for your loss. We loved her so much. Kathy and Bob Wright
