  1. How sad I was to hear of Hazel’s passing. I remember her with much love and affection. Dad,(Tom Forde – full cousin) spoke so fondly of her and her brothers and sisters since his visit during the war then family frienship was rekindled in 1970 when Hazel and Joe visited Scotland, and I visited for a magical summer in 1971 when I was taken into Fountain Terrace and was made feel like another daughter. My last visit was with my own daughter in 2002. I am honoured to have known and loved her and Joe. God Bless xx

  2. I knew Hazel through CNA and appreciated her help with fund raisers for Rosa. She was fun to be with. I am sorry for your loss.

  3. I will never forget the many kindnesses you showed me and my family during our hour of need. You set a shinning example of leadership at CHCP. I have carried your lessons throughout my personal and professional live. You will not be forgotten.

  4. I worked for Hazel at CHCP, she was a wonderful boss, teacher & friend. She so loved her children and grandson. Hazel would share wonderful stories about her family. I will always keep her in my heart. Her children and grandson were so blessed to have such a wonderful mother and grandmother. I know Hazel is in Heaven now, she earned her way to God, by all the people she has helped. May God Bless you all, In Love and Friendship, Hazel’s friend Jackie Egidio

  5. My deepest sympathy to the Marci Family. I remember our trip to Italy with Hazel, Joan-Ellen and the Ferrantes. Hazel was always up for a new adventure – and we had many. She was an advocate for nursing in Connecticut- promoting the role of the professional nurse when and wherever she could. Nursing in CT will be diminshed by her passing. I am certain she and Joe are looking down on all of you now. Marie

  6. To the Marci Family, I am so sorry to hear about Hazel! I remember family outings at my Uncle Jim and Aunt Bea’s where I met Hazel and she described her role as a nurse – that influenced me to pursue nursing. Over the years we connected at many nursing events including her CNA Diamond Jubilee Award banquet! She contributed so much over so many years ~ and her sense of humor made everything so much fun! I hope your happy memories will comfort you.
