I remember spending almost every weekend for months with the Hardys after my mother passed away. Jimmy was about 13 and I was 2 years younger. Even at that age Jimmy made me feel welcome and part of the family. Years later, as my family members passed away, Jimmy would always contact me to pass on his condolences or just check on me.
Shortly after Jimmy got his driver’s license, Jimmy bought an old 40’s 2 door coupe that his dad and neighbor Red Eakes helped him paint fire engine red and fix it up. He loved that car.
I always looked forward to seeing Jimmy and his family when they returned to Nashville for visits. He always tried to visit as many relatives as he could when he came for visits. His smile and charm never changed. God bless you Cousin.

I knew Jimmy through High School, played football, and roomed together for a while at Tenn. Tech. He always had a great smile and personality. He got along with just about everybody he met. Jimmy and Mike Clemmons called me when we had the 45th High School reunion in Nashville(2008). We were excited to see each other and it seemed like old times. My prayers and deepest sympathy to all his family and friends.

My family frequented the Hardy's fairly frequently since we did not live too far away and our mothers were sisters who had been through some hard times. If he and his friends were playing some kind of sports and he always had to chose me since I was younger I was always the last one picked. He always included me in what was going on.

His friends would say that he was always friendly, easy going and someone you could count on.

During those hot Tennessee summers, a 5 or 10 cent Frosty's root beer could not be beaten.

May God bless you "Hardy"; we will all be together some day, Jim
