Dear Robert,

When Eve mentioned that Hazel had passed away I was both shocked and saddened. I extend my sincere condolences to you, Zoe, and Josh.

Indeed I do remember Hazel with much fondness. It is now 26 years since I first met Hazel and that was when we worked together on the same team at the National Crime Authority. After I left the NCA in 1988, I did not see Hazel again and we lost contact, as our careers went in different directions.

I am grateful for the warm and positives memories I have of Hazel. Her dry sarcastic wit was always present and always welcome in those heady days at the NCA. Hazel never took things too seriously when things were tough and she always saw the silver lining. Her contribution to the work of the team, however, was both professional and invaluable. It is a sad, sad loss.

I wish you, Zoe, and Josh well.

Warmest regards

Graham Blewitt

Graham was a colleague of Hazel’s.
