Email from Mark Womelduff:
Ronnie Wolken, Merle Wittman, Larry Caldwell, Jan Brechesien, Terry Cain and I went to Hazel's funeral. Very nice. She was very loved. We talked about the class and future get togethers.She is now out of pain, and in a better place.

Email from Charles Denchfield:
Hazel and I were neighbors and grew up together. I think she was my first girl friend at the ripe old age of about four. John Walter, Hazel and I rode to GHS with her Mother each morning our first couple of years in GHS.
Her Mother, Rosalie, taught at the elementary. Some of you probably had her for a teacher. Hazel was one of those truly "good people" and will be missed.
