It will be a quiet and solemn, brief event

By Phil Aaron, M.D.

It will be a quiet and solemn brief event; only a few friends are expected. But to those involved the memories continue, the loss persists, there is a vacuum in their lives.

The chapel hidden in Taylor Rural Health will be named. Dedicated a few years ago by the Brotherhood class of the Columbia Baptist Church, the chapel will be appropriately named the Hillary Morgan Hadley Chapel. Appropriately named because the beautiful chapel pews were salvaged and refurbished by Hillary's dad, Bart Maxie Hadley - a master wood worker.

A simple plaque will be placed on one of the pews bearing Hillary's name and picture and the chapel will now be opened to anyone in the community who wishes to use this beautiful room for prayer or a quiet refuge.

This naming will occur Thursday, November 11, 2010, at 6:30pmCT. Access to the Chapel will be through the rear entrance to Taylor Rural Health, 805 Burkesville ST, Columbia, KY. A prayer book to be signed has been provided by Kathy Hadley's fellow nurses at Westlake Cumberland Hospital. Money can still be donated in Hillary's name to SAMARITAN'S PURSE, a nationwide disaster relief organization at:
P.O. Box 3000
Boone, N.C. 28607
or to
The Hillary Hadley Scholarship Fund
EKU University Development
521 Lancaster Ave.
Richmond, KY 40475-3102
