Norman and Hazel meant the world to mom and Dad! They were such great friends and neighbors for so many years! Loved seeing Hazel up at Pizza Hut at noon for so many years. Mom cherished the great times she had working with Hazel out at Sauble's Egg House. They had a lot of fun out there! Hazel was one the last of the "old neighbors" in our Cedar Point community. She can join their Homestead Church Bible Study group of Norman, Harshman's, Mercer's, Peach's, and my folks. They had some great times together in the Lord! Love you Hazel !
