"This is the second time I have used Hardy's funeral home. First it was with my husband five years ago and now just this month. But when my daughter and I knew I did not have a whole lot of money, I called around to price shop. But after taking with Jimmy I felt so at ease and that my daughter was in very good hands and they had taken such good care of my husband and family that i knew they would always be where I turned to for such a tragic time in my life. Jimmy did everything I needed done and more even with the corona virus as a concern. And the staff have been nothing but awesome to me me."
