Hadley Taylor Lorg
June 30, 2004 – August 28, 2015
Hadley Taylor Lorg was born in Oklahoma City on June 30, 2004. The angels rejoiced when God’s good and faithful servant Hadley entered the kingdom of heaven on August 28, 2015.
Hadley’s life was shorter than all could wish and pray for, but her impact was great and continues even after death. She fought a courageous battle against Krabbe’ Disease and even though the disease took many of her physical abilities, her faith and compassion shined bright for all to see. Her true purpose of giving God glory and bringing others to know the Lord was displayed on numerous occasions.
Hadley’s family ensured that she lived life to the fullest. She was intelligent and communicated with eye blinks. Her favorite activities were camping, swimming, bowling and playing t-ball. Hadley’s passion was riding her horse, Hank, at the Sunset Therapeutic Riding Center and she loved her back rider, Blu. Riding at the Center added significant joy to Hadley’s life.
With Hadley’s passing we remind others that her life is to be celebrated and each day is a blessing. Although we will miss her every day, she now has a new perfect body and is in the presence of Jesus.
Hadley leaves behind many wonderful nurses that provided love and support throughout her life. There is a special place in our hearts for Holly, whose nursing judgement and expertise provided an excellent standard of care and who increased Hadley’s quality of life by consistently making an effort to make memories by doing arts and craft projects, science experiments, photo shoots, accompanying her to school and assisting with her homework.
Hadley is survived by her loving parents, mother and step-father, Tara and Mat Luse, brother Craig and sister Crist of Oklahoma City; father and step-mother, Rick and Stephanie Lorg, brother Axel, soon-to-be brother Braxton, step-siblings Eric and McKenzie of Oklahoma City; maternal grandparents Don and Teresa Ryan of Oklahoma City, Mike Pirtle and Darcy Fleming of Duncan; paternal grandparents Don and Susanna Lorg of Moore, Errol and Nancy Mitchell of Oklahoma City, several aunts, uncles and cousins including Karson Pirtle, Hadley’s best friend.
Memorials may be made to Hunter’s Hope Foundation to further Krabbe’ Disease research at www.huntershope.org
A memorial service will be held at Crossroads Church (8901 S Shields Blvd, Oklahoma City, OK 73149) Monday, August 31, 2015 at 2:00 PM.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I admire the love you showed to Hadley and the way you did everything to make her life as normal as possible when so many others would have given up and felt sorry for themselves. I pray you feel the comfort of the Lord through your family and friends and Irejoice with you knowing she’s running and jumping perfectly now in her healthy body. And no matter how many years you have ahead, it’s merely a blink of an eye till you join her again for all eternity.

What an incredible blessing Hadley was in her short life. Prayers are with your family to feel God’s peace and love knowing the Hadley is now in the presence of Jesus.
Julia Leinen says
What a beautiful life she led. She was a complete inspiration to me and so precious. Your love and care for her created such a safe place for her to bloom. And bloom she did! I praise God for her life and look forward to celebrating it with you, all the while, knowing that her departure leaves a void that cannot be filled until we too, enter into Heaven.
Ernie&Vickie Martinez says
You could not meet Hadley and not be touched by her. When you looked into those blue eyes you saw such a sweet soul. Filled with more knowledge and understanding of what is truly important in this life. Her life was short here but she was so loved and taken care of by a loving family and friends. As Christians we have the promise of seeing each other againand this will truly be a reunion. May her memory being you comfort till you are together again.
Gail and Jimmy Wade says
Hadley touched so many lives. She was beautiful in every way. Even though you will all miss her, she will live in your hearts forever. May your faith give you comfort now and in the difficult days ahead. Our condolences go to the Lorg and Mitchell families.
Connie Williams says
I remember the day her Krabbe first gave a noticeable symptom. But yet she blossom and grew. She gave everyone who knew her a reason to seek the Lord’s hand.
Billy Conroy says
We have joyfully watched your family enjoy life, love Hadley, and praise the Lord from “a distance” (thru your occasional Facebook postings). I have known Mat since he was a very young man and am so thankful for the man he has become. We honor you Mat and Tara for your great care and stewardship of the life of sweet Hadley.
Donna Garrison says
I’m so sorry for your loss. Sending prayers
Rene' Mateo says
We are so blessed to have known Hadley since before her birth. She was such an amazing child in so many ways. Tara, we are blessed to call you our friend. We always said it was magical to watch your bond, love, and communication with Hadmuffin. God knew exactly what He was doing by giving Hadley the best mom ever (Molly’s words). Hugs and prayers for you and your precious family, dear friend. Love you. The Mateo’s and Haskett’s.

Deborah Harkins says
Tara, I wish I could’ve gotten to know you and miss Hadley better, but Mat has been a special part of my family my whole life. I enjoyed keeping up with your family through Facebook and my heart hurts for you, but I’m also so very jealous of Hadley : ) I’m praying for the peace and comfort for you all that only God can give. Hadley is dancing with Jesus right now. How cool is that?! Love to you all.

My prayers are with you. She was such a beautiful child. Thanks for sharing her with others.
Marsha Moody says
Although I only met Hadley once, what an impact she made upon me. Through facebook, I was privileged to see the many photos of her. Her eyes always said so much. The two I remember most are where she is looking into the eyes of her mom and another where she is looking into the eyes of her horse. What beauty and grace shown through those eyes. Thank you for sharing her with all of us through the pictures. May her memory live on forever. I am sure everyone is blessed for knowing her.
Steve Stanley says
