The friendship with Hans Söhnker lasted all life long. Hardy's friendship with Helmut Schmidt, the former chancellor of Germany, continues to this day, and the same can be said for Sean Connery, Richard Attenborough, Claudia Cardinale and Serge Bourguignon.

When Söhnker, after a long, rich life had to leave this world, Hardy felt a deep, deep loss. But then, in the course of his own long life, death has parted him from many other friends, have turned them into fond memory, into thoughts of happy days, long gone.
