Tribute to Elric Childress

On September 9, 2012, an amazing young man lost his battle with cancer. No child should spend their childhood fighting catastrophic diseases of any type, but Elric Childress is a child who did so with a smile and touched the lives of so many people. Please join hands with us and continue to help bring awareness to cancer and fighting for a cure.

Thank you for being a part of all our lives Elric. We love you.

The song that accompanies this video is by James Otto entitled “Where Angels Hang Around.”  This song is about a child who was diagnosed with cancer, and sung in the position of being a father and what he is going through, taking his child to St. Jude’s Hospital for treatment.  A more fitting song I could not find.  Elric spent much time at the facility as well.  Many thanks to James Otto and Warner Music Group.

A hundred miles out of Little Rock Windshield full of rain I-40 eastbound drivin’ while I pray She’s asleep in the backseat

Holdin’ tight to her teddy bear She’s got her daddy’s smile and her momma’s hair But one word knocked our lives off track Just one word keeps us comin’ back

Across the Mississippi A mile or two from Beale Street Not too far from Graceland Where the king of rock and roll sleeps

To a place for children Where God sends his mercy rainin’ down In the heart of Memphis Where angels hang around

All the deals I’ve made with God The conversations that we’ve had Tryin’ to accept things I could not understand I wanna walk her down the aisle

While those church bells ring See her get the chance to live all her dreams But one word knocked our lives off track Just one word keeps us comin’ back

Across the Mississippi A mile or two from Beale Street Not too far from Graceland Where the king of rock and roll sleeps

To a place for children Where God sends his mercy rainin’ down In the heart of Memphis Where angels hang around

So sleep tight, baby While these four wheels roll ‘Cause just beyond the clouds There’s a ray of hope

There’s a place for children Where God sends his mercy rainin’ down In the heart of Memphis Where angels hang around
