Life is a funny thing. For something as important as life is itself, you never really know when it's going to begin or end. My mom Hazel was a very independent woman. She lived through the horrible depression era of the late 1920's and early 1930's. She was a no-frills person. She had a few sayings that I will always remember: "Make do, or do without! and Paddle your own canoe! We today, live with all the conveniences. Sometimes, the simple and basic things in life are so much more meaningful.

I am going to miss my dear cousin Hazel. There are many fond memories I have of her, going back to when she, Alvin Sr., Alvin Jr. and Kenneth, would come to Atlantic City to visit us in the 1950’s and 1960’s. When I moved to Philadelphia in the early 1970’s, Hazel welcomed me into her home for meals and fun. We had some great conversations and visits during the time that she was a member of the genealogy club. We shared an interest in family history, but my research at that point paled in comparison to what she had done. Then she gave me and other family members one of the greatest gifts of all: notebooks containing our family history, complete with documents and photographs. She spent many hours in various locations compiling the history of the Palmer and Upshur families. Hazel inspired me to restart my family research and I consulted with her countless times over the last two decades as we expanded the family tree and uploaded it onto the Ancestry.com website. Hazel was a truly kind and thoughtful individual. She always remembered to send cards for Christmas, birthdays, and other occasions. She called just to talk and make sure that we were doing well. She was very smart and could discuss a variety of topics including politics, history, and current events. She was a positive influence on everyone whose life she touched.

I was a little girl when I met my grandmother. I don't remember her but, the 1st time I visited the Nurse's resident (over a delicious meal) Ms Nurse told me to call her Granny. Over desert she would talk about the recent trip(s) and how much fun she had. Each time Lydia would take me to see Granny, I grew to love her tremendously. She truly had a heart of God and the fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self- control (Gal 5:22,23). I remember saying many times, "When I grow up, I want to be just like Granny!" R I P Granny. I'll see you in HEAVEN when my time is up. I LOVE YOU!! Annette

Granny. What do I say about this woman who will be dearly missed? Granny was intelligent, proud, smart, creative, loving, caring, giving and very family oriented. She was my personal cheerleader. The only one who ever said they were proud of me. 94 years is a long time to be on this earth and the selfish part of me is not ready to let you go. I tell myself I will always have my memories of visits during the holidays and school breaks, trips to Atlantic City to the beach and to see the family, my 1st plane ride and all the family meals in the dining room. You gave me a love for learning, museums, traveling, family and taught me how to be a lady. So this is me saying, "until we meet again". I love you! Lydia
