BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD

One Year Ago Today...

One year ago today, Elissa Hadley lost her fight to cervical cancer and the world of everyone that ever spent time in her presence got smaller and colder. Later today I'll repost all of her music so that everyone who has not heard it finally has a chance and can share it with others. Also, I would like everyone to read this post and link to it, please - for my sweet little E.


Elissa Hadley, 1 April 1970-27 August 2006


I am better
I am braver
Yes
I am bird wings and birthday cake
Flying starlight clean again
I am flying starlight clean
I am
I am twinkly
Like a tree
At Christmas time
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you...


This is Elissa's song that was played at the close of her memorial service. She sang it for the Breathlanes album "For Now". Click the green 'play' button to start the music.

She was from Columbus, right?


When I used to live in Columbus, my family was good friends with a family of Hadleys. Tony and Becky were the parents, and my friend was Stephen. It'd be odd if they're related somehow. Do you know if she was related to a Tony Hadley?

Elissa was from Atlanta and lived in Athens for the last half of her life. To my knowledge, the only time she ever came to Columbus was the 2 times that her first band, Lenny, played here at The Loft.
