  1. My deepest sympathies to the Hollifield family. I’m so very sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the Bibles’ promise of a resurrection, as it means a hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones. (John 5:28,29)

  2. Hazel was the one person you could always count on seeing at church; no matter what day or time. She was always one of the first people to greet you there with a big smile and cheery hello. I will remember her sweet face. Until we see your bright smile again God speed Hazel on your new adventure. Love and light to the family.
