Eli was a very close friend of mine and he had many other friends. I was someone he could talk to and knowing what happened is heart breaking.

It's so hard to try to understand why you were taken so young and full of life, but god has his plans for us all, we are put in our lives for a purpose once it's full filled he brings us home to him. I remember the day you were born. You were such a happy content baby. I remember only one time when you were crying throwing a fit. I watched you for a day when your mom and dad had to take care of something I can't remember what it was they had to do, but I'll never forget I bought you a Happy meal at McDonald's you got so mad at me, because you didn't eat meat. I knew your dad didn't eat meat till he was 10 or 11 but Justin and shellie didn't tell me you didn't eat meat at the time either. You were so mad I had to pull over and throw them nuggets out and just like that you were content you ate your fries and mine. I have never forgot that it was just the cutest thing how so very mad you were then just like that back to happy Elijah. I loved you the first time I seen you at the hospital when you were born and I will continue to love you until I come home and see you again.
Shellie I can't even imagine the pain your going through. I know he was the air you breathed and your heart beat. Im so very sorry. Your a wonderful mother and Elijah was lucky to have you. You gave him the most precious things that any parent could give there child love and nurture. He knew he was loved.
I love you Elijah Louis Combs
Love, Aunt Jenay

The picture you see is your Aunt, Jenay kissing while you daddy was feeding you. 😞😞😞😒😒😒
