God bless the family at this time of sorrow. May the Holy Spirit fill you with comfort of knowing she rests in peace. May Your regrets be few and your memories be full of bountiful love , knowing she was the best mother, grandmother, and friend ever! I can still hear her sweet country voice full of life and love! I saw her last November in her front yard and she was quick to recognize who I was. It was a joy to see her.! Rest In Peace Hazel Love Brendalee (Leavitt) Smith

Hazel's smiling face is one of my earliest memories. If I close my eyes I can still see the way her face would beam when she was excited, I can still see the way her eyes would glint when she looked at you. I can still hear her laugh, I can still smell her cooking. I remember the first time she told me she loved me and how it filled my heart with joy. She made me feel welcomed in a new country, where I felt I didn't belong, where I felt I was encroaching on familial boundaries. Being a first generation immigrant meant leaving my family behind, adapting to a foreign society, and adopting a loving family that shares none of my blood, creed, race, or religion. Hazel's love transcended all societal constraints and was rooted in the one thing she cared for most. Family. I love you Grandma, you are deeply missed but always remembered.

I retired as Orange County Comptroller after 28 years, and have more wonderful memories than I can keep up with! I know that Hazel was one of the wonderful women who made me feel welcomed when I was brand new on the job, and pretty much knew nothing! Having people like Hazel in the office to keep everything going while training a new boss was wonderful, and I will always be grateful for the people like your mom who made the Comptroller's Office feel like family while never neglecting the job of serving the citizens.
