Condolence Messages

  1. You were one of a kind. Your children were your heart. We watched your children grow from babies to you adults. There aren’t words to describe the kind of person you were. You always had a smile on your face so no one knew how you were feeling inside. You were an inspiration for single mothers. May you rest high until we see you again my sister. People like you are few and far between. I am sure you left a legacy behind for you children and grandchildren the same. Love you sister.

  2. We would like to extend our condolences to the Mclin family. No doubt you made fond memories that would resurface from time to time. May those memories and God’s words in the Bible bring you some measure of comfort. Psalms 34:18 states he is close to the broken hearted and crushed in spirit.

    To the McLin Family – so very sorry to hear of Hazel’s Passing. I worked with Hazel a number of years at DSCC – she always had a smile on her face and kindness in her heart. She would share great memories with me of her family and just beam with pride and love with every memory she shared. Please take a moment to share fond memories of times that she brightened your day with each other. May God provide you peace and comfort during this time and hold your hand, lift up your grief to him and he will help you through this time of loss. Please rest in peace Hazel and we will all meet again some day.

    To the McLin family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. (Acts 24:15) and (John 5:28,29) In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. (Mark 5:41-43) To learn more about God’s promises go to JW.ORG. There are online Bible study lessons featured and more. Love Your Neighbor Irish J. Richardson.

    As a colleague of Hazel’s at the Defense Supply Center, I want to remember her for her professional excellence and unwavering commitment to supporting our men and women in uniform. She was a superb Customer Account Specialist for our Navy customers and contributed directly to the high readiness of our Naval forces. Her personal excellence and reinforcing teamwork lifted us all. She will be sorely missed!

  19. Hazel is one of a very few people I was fortunate to be uplifted by every single time I saw her. She encompasses everything beautiful. My thoughts are with her children, her family, anyone affected by her homegoing. To wish I had only seen her just one more time would be putting it lightly. Hazel was good for my soul. I love you Ms. Hazel & my brother & I will never forget you. -All luv

  20. My favorite cheerleader at Keifer.

  21. Just found out that a woman who helped my path has transitioned. I will never forget on one of my first visits to FCOG I met Ms Hazel. She adopted me as her daughter. She would invite me over her house and check on me often. She always made sure I was focused on the right things and showed me what it meant to be independent and a mother. She always saved me a seat on Sunday mornings. She was a true angel on earth and in my life. 2019 is on a roll claiming lives. Ms Hazel May you Rest In Peace and thank you for all of the knowledge you poured into me as a young girl who knew nothing! I’m forever grateful! May God keep your children and family ❤️❤️


  22. My heartfelt condolences goes out to the family. Hazel mentored me as a young teen when my father Rev. A. T. Miller pastored a church in Springfield. Ohio. I have wonderful memories of her. Praying for the family.

  23. A promise form God: “Your dead ones will live. . . they will rise up. Awake and cry out joyfully, YOU residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of mallows, and the earth itself will let even those impotent in death drop [in birth.” May this promise from the source of life bring the family peace.

    “Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning.” Psalms 30:5.
    “Let not your heart be troubled: he believe in God believe also in me.”. John 1 4:1.
    Extending my sincerest condolences to Hazel’s family. I remember her as a cheerleader at Keifer Junior High. She always had a beautiful smile and was so sophisticated. I hope that as time goes by that her family, friends, and colleagues will remember the happy moments you shared with her, as well as the blessings she shared with you. Share her legacy and keep it alive. I haven’t seen Hazel since High School, but she obviously had a successful and prosperous life.
