Although it was hard to say goodbye, I know she is back with my grandpa…be it some 40+ years later. I guess they have a lot to catch up on. : ) Love Always, Your youngest grandchild Dan

  3. I worked with Hazel for over 10 years at Northrop, we later attended the monthly retiree luncheons together, and, until several months ago, we kept in touch by phone. Hazel was a dear friend. I have special memories of a milestone birthday party given her by her granddaughter. And all of us in the workplace enjoyed her sense of humor, especially the fun she brought to the Christmas Luncheons in the KeyPunch Department. She will be missed. Lillian Bowers
