We are so sorry for this very sad loss of baby Eli. He is so precious in the pictures we saw of him and already loved so much by so many that never got to meet him. We all prayed so hard and hoped for that miracle he needed. Not too many can even begin to imagine the pain and sadness you feel. We will continue to pray for you for the comfort you need to help you thru this very difficult time. Our hearts our broken for all of you.
