My brother was Lyman Hardy, a retired teacher of foreign languages. I found him dead last Saturday, Sept. 19, 2009. I miss him terribly. He had diabetes and didn't take care of himself, but no one deserves this. I really loved the dickens out of him and his quirky sense of humor. I have a much nicer picture of him than what was printed in the paper,but I can't seem to paste it on here. Rule of thumb: never put off telling someone that you love them, it may be too late. I know my brother knew I loved him anyhow, we were close. Death notice: Lyman HARDY Death Notice: Lyman HARDYâ€™s Obituary by the Buffalo News. and the obit: Lyman C.
