I delivered Mobile Meals for Hazel for about 2 years and we would talk for a few minutes. She was always upbeat, talked about her flowers and that she didn't like liver and onions. She would share with me about her life in upstate New York when they were stationed there and about all the snow.  I heard also she was a big swimmer at the YMCA.  Sorry for your loss.
