    Hazel was the glue to her family always on the phone with her nieces and sisters.  She loved to sit at the kitchen table and listen to old country music and talk on the phone.  When she wasn’t doing that she enjoyed catching up on soap operas and tv shows.  When the weather was nice you could find Hazel on the front porch with Lisa or Kelly visiting and listening to music.  She enjoyed doing puzzels, taking rides on the country roads and collecting writing pens.  Hazel loved spending time at home with her family, telling stories and cracking a good joke once in a while, she could entertain herself for hours.  Hazel had a one of kind soul she never judged anyone she met.  She would take in all that wanted her help with wide open arms.  Hazel loved every moment that she spent with her family.
