  1. Both Seabury and Hazel were beautiful people. I had the great fortune of working with Hazel at the Abbate Insurance Agency for many years. When Hazel retired, I still kept in touch with both she and Seabury. In fact, their dog Sara was a puppy from my dog Lady\’s first litter. I feel I am better person for having known them both. I will miss Seabury\’s warm smile, his laugh and sense of humor and the kindness he always showed. I will miss him very much.

  2. Cynthia, I am sorry to hear about the loss of your father, Seabury. If there is anything you need please do not hesitate to contact me. Your father was a great asset to the Laurel Gardens community. We certainly looked forward to reading his articles in the monthly newsletter. He will be greatly missed. Love, Rachel

  3. Cynthia: Seab. will be sorely missed by his many, many friends. His turtle notes were legendary along with his great sense of humor. Please accept my sympathy on your loss, but his love will always remain with you. Sincerely, Bill MacArthur
