With deepest sympathy, we would like to send our prayers and thoughts to Murray Davidson, and their son (Dustin and Miranda Cowan and family) and Murray’s two daughters on the passing of Murray’s wife, Dustin’s mother, and the girls’ (Caitland and Kristen) stepmother, Hazel Davidson. Hazel passed away the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 19 at the age of 49 years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of Hazel’s family and friends at this time of loss. Hazel and Murray were active members of the Botha area and they were willing to help out with different things that needed to be done in this little village. Hazel, you will be truly missed by all who knew you.
