I was blessed and honored to be able to take care of and be part of Hardy's life for the last year. He was a great man, that made each night I came into work fun with his music playing loud down the halls for all to enjoy. We all will miss him dearly, but know that he is in a better place. Thank you for letting me part of your life Hardy, your nurse Nikki xoxo.
