4 Condolences for Hazel L. Link

  • Hazel was a wonderful loving sister and aunt. Our prayers go out to her family.

    Aunt Earsie & Ricky

  • To the family of Hazel Link; So sorry for the loss of your dear loved one Hazel. May the God of comfort grant you peace at this sad time. In the Bible God does give us hope in that at Isaiah 25:8 it says that God will swallow up death forever.

  • For those friends and family of Hazel Link, we offer this:

    “I stand upon the seashore. A ship spreads out her white sails to the morning breeze and heads out across the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength, and I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck of white cloud on the horizon – just where the sea and the sky meet to mingle with each other. At my side someone says: “There! She’s gone!”

    Gone where? Gone from my sight – that is all. She is just as large in mast and spar and hull as when she sailed close by, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of destination. Her diminished size is in my vision alone. At the moment when someone at my side says: “There! She’s gone!” – other eyes watch her coming, and other voices take up the glad shout: “Here she comes!”
