I want to thank you all for your condolences, expressions of sympathy and support and asking if there is anything you could do. My Mom's passing was sudden and, while sad that we could not spend more time with her, at least she went out being active right until the end.
It will take some time to fully cope with the loss but we will. To all of you who have lost a parent,especially a mother, you know what it is like. To those of you who still have a mother take time to spend with her and your dad especially since next weekend is Fathers Day. You won't regret it and they are the only parents you have and they won't be around forever so make it special!!!
Again thanks, and we will see you all soon.

To all Highland's Chapter Brothers,
We are very sad to inform you that Tom (Rollo) Hardy's mother passed away unexpectedly on Sunday.
I spoke to Rollo today. He seems to be holding up pretty well under the circumstances. This has been quite a shock to the family, as Mrs Hardy's passing was completely unexpected. Obviously, it is a very difficult time for the entire family. Tom told me that he and his siblings are working on the funeral arrangements.
Tom's mom had just been to the symphony that day. He was happy to know that his mom lived her life to the fullest. He told me that she enjoyed herself to the very end. I believe Tom told me that she was 82 years old.
All of the members of the Highland Chapter are greatly saddened by the news. Our deepest sympathies go out to Tom and his entire family.
Please keep Rollo and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
