    Yes, Hazel was certainly one of the quietest, kindest, sweetest ladies you will ever find. I am sorry to hear of her passing, but know she is home with JESUS and has just begun to live. Our thoughts and prayers to Richard, and to all of the rest of the Dann Family. I know she will be deeply missed by her church family, where we first met her 38 years ago. Wesley & Linda Foster

    I remember when my Dad (Johnnie as known from some and John by others)that we went to Aunt Hazels. We visited and my Dad would make sure she was shoveled out and whatever was needed at this time she worked for U.M.H Spectrum affilated. She always fed us and yes like REV. Johnson said she WAS a VERY HUMBLE Women. I spent my young years going to Calvery Bapist Church Greenville I went strayed down another road and being the kind of women that Aunt Hazel was never condemed me but always in a VERY VERY polite way reminded me that Jesus was there for me. Yes she was right Jesus was always there for me I just never saw this until a few years ago.My uncle Charlie might remember when my dad took Aunt Hazel outside and got her sick from the cold my dad remembered that like yesterday he felt so bad but you know Aunt Hazel never metioned it. Always,always had NEVER a crosswoed for NOBODY!! She is with Grandpa & Grandma Dann & her rest of her family and someday we all will walk through those wonderful gates to our famlies that are there now. GOD BLESS!!!! Rebecca Dann-Johnson

    My memories of Aunt Hazel are of walks along the river and Sunday dinners with Grandpa. She has always seemed to me to be a very patient and understanding person. My sympathy is with the rest of the family. Diane
