Not sure what to say?

It was truly a joy and a pleasure to have been a caregiver to Hazel for the past 2 yrs. I never knew her before her ALZ diagnosis but from what I've learned about her before she always retained her sweetness. She was always a delight to be with and she and Frank showed me what enduring love was. I will miss her dearly and her family and friends and other caregivers but it is a comfort to know she is in heaven now with Frank.RIP My sweet Hazel.

It was truly a pleasure and a joy to have been a caregiver to Hazel for the past 2 years.I never knew her before her ALZ diagnosis but she retained the essence of who she was from what I learned about her before, she was so sweet and childlike and always a delight to be with. I will miss her dearly as well as her family and friends. I am so grateful she was in my life. I saw first hand what true and enduring love was between her and Frank,they are together now in heaven.

Almost every time Hazel was referred to in conversation it was as "Sweet Haz or Hazel". She is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Her second name was "Frank and "Hazel". They were always mentioned together and they are together again. She will be missed.
