Gone too soon ! Oh Hazel my sister, how I wish you were not gone too soon, how I wished I had prayed with you one last time… you are always going to be here in my heart and mind! I call you my “MacGyver” because you always knew how to do or fix stuff! You give and love all you come across. I will miss your hearty laugh, the giggles and oh my…those Nigerian movies… you are an amazing lady and inow you are where nothing can hurt you. I will miss your live chats but I know you will continue to advise me.. death ends the life but never the relationship so my sister, now I will speak to you and you listen.
So long my big sister and friend, I love you!

I met Hazel through her children and she immediately struck me as a woman that loved and rooted for her family with a fierce passion. She was a no nonsense type but didn’t mind being goofy. (Oh Jenny!) She had a beautiful smile and cared so much for those she loved. I will never forget Hazel and her warmth. It lives through the beautiful family she created and the lives she touched. Love to you Hazel and the Folashade family
