We were blessed to have worked with Hazel here at Crossroad Child & Family Services.  Her smile, her passion, and her kindness made such an impact on children and staff over the years.  To you, her family: we are thinking of you all and send our condolences and love.

Hazel was always a kind and loving person whose presence at Crossroad was appreciated by all those that worked beside her.  Hers was a life well lived and she will be remembered fondly.  Thoughts and prayers to the family she so loved.
