Our deepest heartfelt sympathy for your loss.
So terribly sad and hard to say "goodbye for now" to someone close. My heart goes out to you and your family, Kathy. Heartfelt condolences to you all.
I still remember clearly the first time that Eli came over to my house after the family moved to Stirling and we became neighbors. Eli was a good dude all around and I always thought highly of him. He was a year older than me and 2 classes ahead of me, but we spent a lot of years together in Scouts. I was shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. Kathy, Adam, Emily, Kenneth and Jordan and the rest of the family, please accept my condolences on Eli's passing.
All the best,
Sending love to all of you, Kathy.
Om my Gosh I am so sad to be hearing this awful news. I loved Eli so much he was the funnest person I hung out with. I'll never forget Jamaica! Eli God Bless You and knowing you are in Heaven is comforting. Thank you Starla for letting me know of his passing.
