In memory of coordinator Hazel Bingham.

Hazel known to most  by her screen name Glynafon has sadly passed away peacefully after a long illness at 4pm Sunday 19th November.  We shall always be in debt to her for the many years spent helping dogs  get reunited with their owners. …I used to call Hazel eagle eye as she had an uncanny ability to match dogs some times after many years and from photos I would never have been able to match.

Every possible match we would always send to Hazel first and she would then contact owner if she thought it could be their dog.  Over the years she never gave false hope to owners and if she thought it could be their dog it was!

Hazel brought so much happiness to both the owners and their dogs  and I know you will join me in saying what a wonderful woman and she will be missed greatly.

I will send the blog link to Hazel’s son Simon who can show his father  Tony  and the family.

The lovely photo of Hazel shows her with her 2 dogs Pippin and Pixie…Pixie will be there to greet her at rainbow bridge.

    Very sad to hear this and my thoughts go to her family. She will be kindly remembered by many that she helped over the many years she has been with doglost . We will remember her wonderful and gentle way she dealt with owners and will forever remain in the hearts of many.
    May she rest in peace.

    Such sad news although I know Hazel had been almost housebound for a long time but never gave up helping. Thoughts with her family.

    Lovely email from Hazels husband…Jayne, I have just seen your blog.
    I am overwhelmed by what you have so kindly said. I know of course how much she valued you and all her dog lost contacts, and how much pleasure it gave her to be a part of your work. She was ecstatic whenever there was a successful re-uniting of dog and owner, and her burning anger at the despicable acts of some people.
    Working with you all gave her many years of happiness, and I have no doubt that it helped her to continue through her illness the past five years. Thank you from all the family,who have seen it, for your kindness.
    Tony Bingham.

    Hazel was a lovely kind person who worked so hard for missing dogs and their owners, matching lost and found dogs with great success in the time before Facebook, when it was much harder. My sympathies to her husband and family in their loss.

    I never had the pleasure of knowing the lady but by all accounts she was a very exceptional woman, we are all a little bit diminished by her loss

    Very sad to see this news, Hazel was one of the foundation blocks that DogLost is grounded on, her attention to detail and great knack for matching dogs will be sorely missed – best wishes to her family at this sad time

    I just wanted to say thank you for your lovely blog about my Mother, Hazel
    It was a perfect tribute and I know has meant a great deal to Dad.
