  • Tears are streaming down my face as I write this sad note to all those who baby Hazel loved. What a sweet little soul that touched so many lives in her short life. There are no answers why some humans live one day and some live 100 years. Only our heavenly Father knows and he has a book of remembrance with her name written in it and the day will come when all those in the memorial tomb will be resurrected back to life on a beautiful paradise earth. What a hope for our dead loved ones to live again. Baby Hazel’s family is so numb right now and just going through the motions of living. May love and peace wrap it’s arms around you and give comfort and joy as you remember little Hazel’s smile and laughter. She was so loved! May God bless your family. Fondly, Melody Quick
