We will always cherish all the fun times we had with Aunt Hazel and our mom. Talking, laughing, shopping, playing cards, drives to the beach, eating at our favorite restaurants, drinking wine and eating calamari! We especially loved all the stories her and mom shared about their childhood adventures! You will be forever loved and in our hearts always! Love you so much! Anna and her girls
