I have known him for a little over a year now, and have never known any- one as intriguing. He has been an ab- solute, wonderful ad- dition to our church family and our com- munity. I have never met anyone who has as much love in his heart as he does. I wanted to find out what makes a man like him be the way he is. I have never been through so much emotion in one sitting. Literally, from laughter to tears to laughter. I will share what I have learned about our extraordinary Brother Buddy. Clayton Eugene Ha- zell was born Oct. 13, 1930, to the parents of Samuel Curtis Hazell and Juna Valentine Watson Hazell. He was born in his grandpar- ents' house in Batson. He will tell you, "I was born in the back bed- at the time. He fond- ly tells about how he survived. There in Hardin county lived a black lady named Jenny. Jenny hitched up her mule and wagon and she nursed Ms. June's infant son three times a day for nearly a year. This now, grown son, will tell you that it certainly made no difference to him what color his milk container was. Jenny was always in demand and gra- ciously God gave her what she needed. For time after time, Jenny hitched up her mule and wagon and made the rounds whenever a child, black, white or indifferent needed her. After he was a grown man, Buddy returned to Batson for a visit. While he was there, some friends told him that Jenny had diabetes and was not doing very well. He made a trip out to the old house to visit with dy replied, "It's me Jenner." She told him not to tell her who he was but to come up on the porch. You see, Jenny had nearly lost her sight. Therefore, Buddy did as she asked and quietly walked up on the porch. Jenny couldn't remember his name, but she knew that he was Ms. June's boy. It wasn't long after that Batson lost Jen- ny. It was the largest funeral ever held in Hardin County. Peo- ple flew in from all over the country to pay their last respects to Jenny. Buddy recalls spending most of his childhood days in Batson. The small town consisted of two stores, a filling station, and a domino hall. A child in town who misbehaved was subject to getting spanked by whoever caught him doing the misdeed. Buddy will also tell you while grinning, that even though there were no phones at the time, his mother would surely know before he got home, of a spanking he received in town. Then once at home it was du- plicated! Editor's note." This story will be told in parts. If you enjoyed part one, be sure to pick up next week's issue of The News when Buddy's life story will continue. I love being a community banker!
