Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the loving memory of Janet Marie Hardy, who was born on November 02, 1989, in Baltimore, Maryland.  She was killed on October 26, 2003 by a drunk driver at the age of 13, just one week before her 14th birthday. 
There are no words to explain the depth of our loss.  Our lives have been changed forever.  In place of joy and laughter, there is sorrow and tears.  She filled our lives with an irreplaceable joy.  She will NEVER be forgotten.

The Janet Hardy Memorial Soccer Games are a tribute to Janet and a way for us to reach out to the community with education and awareness about drunk driving.  The 14th Annual G
ames will be  held on April 8, 2017, at the Cecil Arena, in Northeast, MD.  Click on "Her Legacy" to see the game schedule for 2017 and all the Scholarship winners.  For more information, contact Ms. Hardy at or 443-466-4990.
