I have known Hazel and Gordon all my life. I even remember often Gordon's father when he used to sit me on his lap when I was about 2 years old. Gordon was kin to my mother threw the Bobbitt family. They were always good to my children also when they wore children. My daughter, Darby, rented a building from them also, Hazel come to our family get to gather a number of years ago when we done the family reunion of the Bobbitt House that belonged to Archie Bobbitt, my mother's father. We loved her dearly and know she is in the hands of god and standing by Gordon's side now once again.

Mama always had a special bond with the Mansfield family. Hazel was a dignified southern lady whose quiet manner was an inspiration to many people. Keeping Mary Sue and all of Hazel's loved ones in my thoughts and prayers.

Gary and Sandra, I'm so sorry for your loss. Your parent's store was always a part of my youth and I have fond memories of my first stop leaving school for snacks on the way home. You were both truly blessed to have parents like these. Condolences.Steve

Hazel was a kind and gentle soul. I was raised at 602 Oakwood Avenue, across from Wickers Store for the first 10 years of my life. My parents, Albert and Louise Brown, always spoke highly of Hazel and Gordon. Visiting her when I returned to Sanford for visits over the years was a highlight for me. We sat and chatted about life, present and past. She will be missed. My heart is hurt by her leaving, but my life is so much richer for having known her. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Gary and Sandra and family.Rest In Peace, my friend Hazel Wicker.
