Very sad to learn that my dear friend Hardy passed away last fall.
Hardy was a very bright individual with whom I hung out evenings by the LSU campus. After graduating from LSU, I worked for a couple of years as a ground man for his tree service.
Brooks, who was a very young boy (about age four?), had an ongoing contest with his grandmother involving the "To Tell the Truth" game show. Each began with a jar of 100 pennies but had to forfeit a penny if the other party was the only one who correctly identified the contestant who actually was the person being profiled. The last time I witnessed the contest, Brooks had about 180 pennies, and Grandma --- who had about 20 cents remaining --- did not look happy about it!
Anyway, Hardy was a great guy. I hope his family is well.

What can I say abut Hardy? We had some good times watching documentaries together. We had some interesting conversations. He helped out when he could. He spent too much time over thinking and regretting. He enjoyed a good cup of coffee, but not until he was older. He was smarter than he knew. He liked ebay and would stay up late looking for deals. The last 2 years of his life were probably the best and happiest thanks to his daughter, Ashley. Hopefully he is at peace now with Jenny, his beloved dog. We love you. Rest in Peace, Hardy.

being called Hardy, not Horace
Reading Encyclopedia's for fun
Cigarettes (Marlboro Red's then later what was cheapest)
Dr. Pepper (then warm generic coke)
A Fine Pool Cue
And he learned without a doubt how much he really loved his kids and did the best he could to be some part of their life. He finally figured out that it was okay and that he deserved to be loved too.
He was very intelligent (though he'd strongly disagree) and in my opinion would have been a high level Civil Engineer given a different head start in life.
Love you Dad!
