I loved to visit Mrs. Hardey. She was active at First Baptist Church from childhood and had many stories to tell about the old days and my childhood pastor, Bro. Becton. I liked her board with the family tree also - a great way to keep up with all of the new faces that seemed to keep coming to her family. She would kiss my cheek and call me "Darlin." She was also my bus driver for one year at WHS. I am blessed to have known her.

Dear Hardey family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sadness and grief. Our family has been blessed by knowing Mrs. Hardey’s daughters and the blessing of receiving her granddaughter into our family. Through her family, our family has been blessed. Know that you are all in our prayers.

With love, The Waldo Family
