    I’m so sorry for the loss of your beautiful son. He rode our bus in junior high, and we really enjoyed his presence. In high school he would stop by on his way in to school. We will miss seeing him.

    I’m so sorry and sad to hear this. I was a paraeducator at Cordley Elijah’s K-3 years. He taught me so much. I’ll never forget his joyful reaction to my first born baby when I brought her in one day (he was around 5). My heart is with you, his family, at this difficult time. <3

    I am so sorry for your loss. This news breaks my heart. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers during this time. I was Elijah’s first grade teacher and I can still see his handsome smile and he always brought a smile to my face. He was a kind, sweet soul and always made people around him laugh.

    Dear Mikel Family,
    So sad to learn of Elijah’s passing. He was a precious boy, and a true friend to Caleb. I will miss their play dates and “conversations.” We will never forget him.

    Love and prayers,

    The Saripalli Family
