It is my prayer for all of you that the Lord will sustain you with comfort and love. I am so sorry about your loss. Sincerely, Charm Cameron Charm Cameron, September 23, 2006 To the entire family. May God give you peace in time. I can still see Eli at the Collin County Youth Barn working with his animals. He was always such a pleasant, kind and caring individual. I know your loss is heartbreaking. God Bless You All in you time of deep sorrow. Nan Parker, February 14, 2006 Ray & I want to say that the hardest thing in the whole world is giving up our babies. Its just not the way its suppose to be. I know in my heart that we were blessed to have Eli for over 21 years but its never long enough. I keep remembering our cruise 2 weeks before Eli was taken from us, and I can just see him having fun and living life to the fullest. We have so many good memories,to keep in our hearts forever . Dorothy Davis, February 10, 2006 As you all probably know, Eli was my bubs. He was my brother. He was my best friend in the UNIVERSE. Eli knows every single thing about the person I am, and now he knows the person I will be. My best friend is in Heaven with Bubba and Ronnie. I know they are all looking down at us right now and thinking "Why are they so sad? We're finally free. They don't know what they're missing." And even though Eli doesn't think I should be upset, I lost my best friend. He won't be here for the rest of my life. My entire world has just shifted in what seems like a millisecond. My babies won't have they're Uncle Eli, he won't be there to see me get married. But, I WILL see my brother, my best friend, my bubs again someday in Heaven. I'm willing to wait as long as I have to just to see his smile, feel his arms around me and smell the sweet smell of my brother. God Bless you all.
