Condolence: I met Hazel and George Tanzola the first day I moved into my house which was across the street from them in Montville, NJ. They both came to my door to welcome us with wine, chips, and a dip. Coming from New York City, we found this to be absolutely refreshing. I remember Hazel and George telling me they'll never forget the look on our faces that first meeting when we opened our front door hesitantly since this wasn't usually done in New York. We always laughed about that moment.
Within a very short time, we became very close to them. They were truly loving and caring parents to their children and grandchildren. After George died, Hazel was given a dog by her son, George, who she loved and called him "my little man." She always spoke to me about her family and, by this time, her great grandchildren who she absolutely adored.
I will always have a special place in my heart for Hazel and George who loved to dance and share their happiness and kindness with others.
I have been truly blessed with having met and dealt with them over so many years. They gave me hope that there are still real, caring, and decent people in this world and, for that, I will never ever forget them.
Condolence: Please allow me to express my deepest condolences for your family's loss. I hope that you will find comfort in the real hope that the Bible gives of being reunited with your loved one again. In the Bible at John 5:28, 29 it reads, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.". The Bible there promises that your loved one will come back to life again in the resurrection. (Acts 24:15) The Bible also promises that soon death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3, 4) I encourage you to visit JW.org for more information about this wonderful hope.
Condolence: George and Dara,
I was so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was such a fun person to be around. I always loved when Hazel, Mr.T and the dog would all come in to Dr. Walter's office for their appointments.(not the dog, of course!)
Hugs to you,
Bobbie ( formerly of Dr. Walters office )
