  • What an inspiration…… this quiet, humble lady of God. She never complained of doing anything she had to do in our Lord’s house “The First Baptist Church of Fredericktown. I remember one time following her footsteps of directing vacation Bible school. She had all of the notes I needed and I didn’t have a clue there was so much involved because she had run such a smooth ship and was so laid back in doing it. Thank you, Hazel!!!

    Loved and will always remember her BIG Smile!!

    We are so sorry we will be unable to personally be there with you this week but our prayers and love go out to the entire family.
