To Terry, Connie and all of Hazel's family. I will miss her tremendously as will my mom. I remember her and Mom coming to Grand Forks to attend the Daniel O'Donnell concert. They were like two young girls at a rock concert and so enjoyed themselves. Then of course we had a few games of cards! Rest in peace to a wonderful lady and friend. Deb
