I was a service provider for Hazel thru The Rennaisance House. She was such a joy to be around. I will always remember you Haz and will always remember you calling me Dorothy all the time. RIP my dear friend with your brother Willie.

I worked with Hazel for several years at Berardi's restaurant. She always had a great contagious smile! She was our "Hazelnut". My condolences to her family and friends.
