It Just Gets Worse

I haven't posted about this yet, simply because I didn't want to and honestly didn't have the energy. My energy has been in short supply lately, but now I have a good reason.

Elissa's father, John Hadley, died this past Tuesday of a heart attack. His funeral service will be held tomorrow, Saturday, September 16th
Dunwoody United Methodist Church
1548 Mt. Vernon Road
Dunwoody, GA 30338
(link to directions here)

Celia will receive guests in the parlor at 1pm. The service will begin at 2pm. Mrs. Hadley wanted everyone to know that in lieu of flowers, please make donations to Camp Twin Lakes:
Donate online or write to:

Camp Twin Lakes
600 Means Street #110
Atlanta, GA 30318
It is a camp for children with cancer.

I don't have words for this at all, just please send Celia and the rest of the Hadley family your energy and prayers, please. Details on Elissa's service will be coming soon. The plans are progressing very well.

There were two write-ups in this week's Flagpole about Elissa. I was going to post them yesterday, but I couldn't get the damn LJ cut to work correctly. I have physical copies for both you and killcircuitboys. You can email your addy to me at pdsexton3@charter.net, or I can give them to Ian to forward along to you.

Jude, I'm so sorry to hear this. What a devatating turn of events for this family.

We lost a good friend this week to a heart attack as well. It's never easy.

My thoughts will be with you all as you deal with another loss.

Hugs, Christina

I was out of the country when Elissa Hadley died, and the first I heard of her was today on Firedoglake. I was already sad to read about someone so young and so talented passing when I stumbled across this. Now I'm completely in tears, I can't imagine the pain this family is in. I'm very, very sorry to learn of this, and I wish comfort upon everyone who loved these people.

Tomorrow is Elissa's memorial service, which is going to primarily be a celebration of her life and achievements. I'll be posting all about it probably tomorrow night when I get back home.
