Mr. Hardin was one of my heros. I was lucky enough to have him as a shop teacher in the 70’s at Hendersonville Junior High. I am filled with sorrow and emptiness in my heart of his departure. My sympathy are direct to his family. I will miss him, he was an oak and leaves an ever lasting impact in my life.
