HADLEY LUKE MICHAEL
Luke Michael Hadley passed away at home on Thursday, October 30, 2008, in the loving arms of his parents, after a lifelong battle with the effects of his chromosome disorder. He was two years old. His gentle smile could melt the hearts of those around him and though he never spoke a word, his voice and thoughts could always be heard. Although Luke's illness made his body weak, Luke possessed unmatched strength, perseverance and bravery. Luke is survived by his parents, Jeffrey and Kara Hadley of Indiana Township; his maternal grandparents, Kathleen and David Cornett of Indiana Township; his paternal grandparents, Richard and Mary Jane Hadley of Cranberry Township; 2 great- grandmothers; many wonderful (great) aunts, (great) uncles and (2nd) cousins. The family would like to extend their warmest thanks to Luke's pediatrician, Dr. Leslie Soloshatz, and friend Peg Cordaro, who both provided 24-hour daily support. Luke's love extends to the entire community who reached out with open arms to support the Hadley family during his illness. He will be dearly missed by all of his family, friends and caring nurses. The Family will receive friends on Sunday, November 2nd, at WEDDELL-AJAK FUNERAL HOME 100 Center Avenue Aspinwall from 2 pm to 6 pm. Liturgy of the Word will be held at 10 A.M. Monday, November 3rd in Saint Scholastica R.C. Church 309 Brilliant Avenue, Aspinwall. Everyone please meet at the Church. Interment Private. In lieu of flowers, the Hadley family asks that donations be sent to: Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation, 1251 Waterfront Place, Floor 5, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. Please note on the check that the donation is in honor of Luke Hadley.
