I'm not going to go into any detail about the story, but the older zoners here will remember my nephew Elijah. I'm sorry for not getting to post this sooner. We lost Elijah on January 18th. around 4 pm. I was there when they took the resperator off. It was very peaceful. He battled a hard battle for 2 years. He developed a virus in his lungs that hardened his lungs. The 4 transplants they did were fine. Thank you all for your prayers for the last 2 years. In remembrance. Elijah Le Griffith--11\10\2003 to 1\18\2005. Thank you all. and I dont know why my name says "dammit" not coopin.
Oh Lori, I'm so sorry. God be with all of you at this difficult time. At least that brave little boy who fought so hard will finally rest in peace. He will always be a hero to me. I will never forget him.
I can't tell you how sorry I am. My thoughts and condolences are with your family at this time. We've all been thinking about him for upwards of a year and had hoped for the best. Thanks for letting us know.
My greatest condolences, Lori.
These must be really hard times for you and everyone in your family. Just remember that sometimes it's better to let a loved one go, than to see them suffering while battling for their lives.
Though it might not help a lot, you can always count on pretty much everyone here at Queenzone to make you feel better. We'll always be there to listen and give you the best of ourselves.
There's nothing much that can be said at a time like this really. I don't think anyone here who has followed Elijah's progress will ever forget him.

Oh, Coopin, I am so sorry to hear this news. Many of us here at Queenzone have continually prayed and held out hope for little Elijah - he was certainly a strong little guy for having made it as far as he did!
Rest assured, he is in peace now and nothing can hurt him anymore. I will continue to pray for your family, as I know how you all must feel at this time.
I'm sure many of us who have continually held out hope for Elijah, etc., will never forget him and your family.
