I had Mr Cronk for my teacher at Senior Public School in Dunnville 1972. I have always wondered how he was doing. He was a caring wonderful teacher. One of my favorite teachers.

I am saddened to read of Uncle Hazen's passing. I remember how cool I thought it was that he taught "way up north" and I had several pen pal's growing up because of Aunt Lois and Uncle Hazen.

My condolences to all of you.

I just read in the paper the Obituary of your father. I always remember him joking with me about swimming in the Grand River. It was a standing kind of joke every time Liz had me stay at their home. Your parents were a great couple and l so enjoyed the peace and comfort l felt there. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. Take care.

I apologize for not being able to show my last respects to Uncle Hazen. I found out after the service. My deepest sympathy to DeRutha. Linda, Elizabeth, Joe, spouses and families. Uncle Hazen was an awesome man....2 peas in a pod with my Grandma. He has been reunited with Aunt Lois, Gord and Dave. Aunt Lois no doubt had baked something special for her soulmates arrival. Heaven is a special place and our loved ones are in safe keeping with Jesus.
