I grew up with Wes and his sister Lesley, I remember always thinking what a good brother he was. He always was a nice guy. I haven't seen Wes in 17 years but, I will always remember what a great person he was. I want the family to know that my prayers and love goes out to you. Keep your Faith and Count on God to help you get through the hard times, God is the answere. God bless and I am so sorry for your loss. Suanne Wilson Morehouse

Do not stand at my grave and forever weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and forever cry.
I am not there. I did not die.

I would like to thank all of the agencies that attended the funeral today. It was a tremendous sight to see all of the motorcycles lined up outside of the church. Thank you for taking the time to honor our fallen officer.

"He Answered The Call"

Today in the sun, I bid him farewell
A man, a hero, I never knew well

Like many before him, who answered the call
Wearing a badge, he was destined to fall

Though by choice a long life and a happy old age
Would he have chosen, had he written the page

But the office he chose never promised long life
Just half of his salary, for his child and his wife

He went without fear, into the darkness of night
Bringing comfort to some, to some others light

Easing their pain and calming their fears
He did his duty, never asking for cheers

A husband, a cop, he answered the call
We bid him farewell for he gave his all

My deepest sympathies to Officer Hardy's family, fellow officers and friends. You have lost a wonderful man and you have gained an angel in God's force. God has chosen to heal him more completely than we know, and call him home, and we will never forget the sacrifice he made for you and I. Godspeed Officer Hardy - please watch over your family and friends from the special place that your Heavenly father has prepared for you.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends and Plano Police Department as they grieve the loss of a husband, father, brother, friend and one of the city’s finest.

I did not have the pleasure of meeting Officer Hardy, but after reading some of the reflections left on this page and seeing the photos of him with his daughters, it is easy to tell that he was a kind and loving man who loved his family, friends and the job that he was called to do.

I am the wife of a Denton County Officer who will be joining his brothers and sisters today, as they celebrate the life of Officer Hardy.

No words seem appropriate during this difficult time, but please know you will all be in our thoughts and prayers. May God grant you comfort and peace in the days to come.

Blessed are the peacemakers and blessed are the wives and families that support and love them as they answer the calling to serve others as a peace officer.

Blessings to you all,

I knew Wes as a neighbor and as a fellow officer, he lived on the road to our house, we spoke several times and always waved in passing. My family and I saw him all the time riding his Police Motorcycle to and from work, my thought was always noway would I ride a Motorcycle as a Police Officer, on top of that he was a volunteer Firefighter in Howe. In my mind Wes will be remembered to me as a guardian. GOD BLESS his Wife and Children. My family's door is always open. You will always be remembered in the communtity of Howe, Texas. REST IN PEACE.

Wes, from the day you came in for your first interview in the hiring process, to the last time I saw you, you never changed. Your smile,enthusiasm and kindness are etched in my memory. You are missed greatly but your spirit will live on with us for the rest of our lives. Thank you for the gifts you gave us while in our presence.

Ashlee, I pray that our Lord brings peace and comfort to you and the girls as well as all of the family. I hope you find some comfort in all the comments brought forth in this forum. You will always be a part of the extended family at Plano PD.

May God be with your wife, daughters, the rest of your family and the other Plano officers. This is such a trying time that it can bring some to question "Is it worth it?". No greater love can a man have than one that lays down his life for another. God has already welcomed Officer Hardy into his arms. May he now be a gaurdian angle for his family and friends.
God Bless You Officer Dayle Hardy
