I can't help but celebrate for Aunt Hazel. She has always been, for as long as I can remember, a tremendous woman of faith. Every conversation I had with her included her love for Jesus. She was a prayer warrior and shared the gospel. I know that God was pleased to welcome her home, saying, "Well done faithful daughter, let's celebrate!"
I pray for peace and comfort for all the family and those close to Aunt Hazel. She will surely be missed
