I just found out about El passing! I feel so terrible that I did not know sooner! Eli was like a second father to me and I loved him dearly! He had been bringing sweet Joan to me for years to get her hair done! I'm going to miss all our joking and his loving kind helpful advice and talks! He was a gentle giant! I love you Eli! Does anyone know what has happened Joan where she is?
