"Kim and I would like to “thank you” so much for your help in making our vow renewal day something very special, and a day that we’ll always remember. You were great (as always) and it was so nice to see you after 10 years. The Hassayampa Inn and Prescott hold special memories for us, and having you there was the final piece on a very nice event. Thanks again for everything, and have a great day!!"

    “Rev. Hazel, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful service you did for my daughter Terri yesterday.  I looked around for you after I made several made dashes to the other house for things I forgot, but once I slowed down a little, I realize that you had left.  It was pretty chaotic there when getting lunch set up.  I wanted to thank you again (and again and again!) and say good bye.  Several of the attendees wanted to tell you want a wonderful service it was – some said the best they had ever been to or heard.  I really appreciated your going the extra mile and at such short notice.  You must love what you do, because you are so good at it!  I also appreciated your providing me a copy of the whole thing.  I was able to send it to several people who weren’t able to come.  Anyway thank you so much.  Love,”
