    Danny will be greatly missed. I have known Danny for about 50 years as I live across the street from him and went to school with his nephew and niece that he raised with Barbara. He was always easy going and funny. Fly high Danny Ray Hardy….see ya on the other side. Sending prayers to all of the family.

    I’m so thankful God allowed me to come into this mans life. He was such a thoughtful giving person. I’m going to miss talking to him about his garden. All the beautiful peppers he grew for Pepper sauce. The cornbread and greens he would send by Pat for me to eat because he knew I loved his cooking! I’m really gonna miss this (good ole boy) Danny Ray Hardy
