Hazel was a great man & a true American Hero. I will so miss him in my Sunday School Class and working in the kitchen at Grace. He taught me so much...and put a sprinkle of sugar on your food. Rita and Family, we love you.

Mike and Kim and Rita as well , I was very sorry to here about Hazel - I had run into him in Walmart about a month ago and he was telling me that he's been fighting his sickness for a while now . We then began to talk about "the good old days" back at the Pig and what a good time we used to have with the "whole gang" - Even though I was the Sealtest milkman I still felt like part of the " Pig" family - I'm thankful to have been able to see Hazel again and reminisce- ahhh the good 'ol days they were indeed !!! Thanks for the memories- Sonny Plyler
