this just in from Charlene:
It is with great sadness that I pass along this news of the passing of our beloved friend, Maurice Hardy. As many of you know, he has been through many medical difficulties over the past few years.

What a blessing to have had this beautiful man in our lives. No matter what was going on in his life, his first concern was always with the people around him. He faced it all with a tremendous faith and a hearty laugh.

May he rest in eternal peace.
