    Thank You Lord for all You have done in bringing the body of Hazel to her family. Lord Jesus Christ, I humbly pray that with Your merciful love, forgive all the sins of Hazel and take her to Your Eternity home there she may praise You for ever and ever Amen. Lord forgive the person who has done wrong to her and I pray that he too repent and ask for Your forgiveness.

    Lord You sent Hazel to this world to her family and now she is with You. Strengthen the courage of her husband and family, her parents and all her dear and near ones. May Your healing touch help them to bear the absence of Hazel and continue their trust in You.
