We loved both your Mom and Dad so very much. Can’t even begin to tell you how great they were to both me and my four kids. They will be truly missed by many, but I know they are happy to be together again. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I can’t remember a time the Cochrans and Hazeltons weren’t friends. Sue and Bill will always be part of my memories of growing up. They were great role models. Growing up with Tom, Vicki and “little” Beth was very special. My heart and prayer are with you all.

Our thoughts are with Mrs. Cochran’s family today. Having worked with Tom for many years, it is evident what a great lady Sue was. The greatest expression of life is not what we take while we are on this earth, but what we leave behind when we depart form it.
Godspeed Mrs. C.
