I was lucky enough to meet Hazel at I. Magnin. Her sense of humor and the twinkle in her eye was the initial reason we became friend, and we sustained our friendship for many years because of her charm and loyalty. She will remain in my heart forever.

My sincere condolences for the loss of your Mother. Hazel was one of my best friends at San Diego High School. I have such wonderful memories that I will always treasure. We both started families at about the same time and blended our family activities in those early years.
I will never forget you mothers' loving smile and generous spirit. Life won't be the same without her. My thoughts are with you.
