10 May 1948 - 14 September 1998

Hazel at Mount Wilson, where her ashes are now buried.

From Hazel's Fortieth in 1988 and on ...

I thought that it would be of interest to record the progress of Hazel's disease, in the manner of Alan Shapiro's memoire of his sister Ruth's cancer in Vigil (University of Chicago Press, 1997) and Ruth Picardie's much more moving diary Before I Say Goodbye (Penguin, 1998).

Since Hazel didn't send many emails, almost all entries are by me, Rob, with two exceptions: the first, in which Hazel writes about her fortieth birthday, and one in mid-1994, in which Hazel writes about the initial diagnosis and her response.


1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2002

Please feel free to email me, Robert.
