    What a wonderful family at 1 N. Hazel from the immaculate garden and lawn on the outside to the warm welcome always graciously given on the inside — whether entering through the beauty shop, porch or kitchen. Such lovely memories of Frosty, Jean, Laurie and Tim — and all reachable through the switch board operator with the three-digit, spoken phone number. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your lovely extended families at this time. Peace.
