    Aunt Linda, Tommy, Johnny and all of Uncle Tommy’s family. I just wanted to express our sympathies from myself and my girls, Jamie and Emily. My heart goes out to all of you. You all always made us feel so welcome when we all came to visit, just like all of our extended Hazen/DeValls Bluff family always did.

Borrowing a quote to share with you all, Aunt Jo, Uncle Larry Don and everyone else we spent time with in your neck of the woods; “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Ya’ll always made us feel loved! Love you all, Kelly, Jamie, Emily.
