    Absolutely heartbroken. Words cannot describe what I feel like now. I have been following Eli’s story for years now, davening every day for a refua shelaima. All the way from Israel, at the kotel, thousands and millions of tefillos have been sent up to the heavens. Hashem must’ve felt that the inspriy, beautiful Elimelech was just too holy for this world. My deepest, deepest, condolences as I sit here with tears streaming down my face, unable to believe that this is true. May Hashem bless you with a year to come filled with only simchas. Amen.

    ברוך דיין אמת. I’m crying as I read this. I met Eli once- when Malkiel and Nochum took him to Eretz Yisrael and I was so hoping that there would be a different end to this story. המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר אבילי ציון וירושלים

    I’ve never met you or your son but I am sitting in my office at my desk crying as I’m sure many others are as well. Your blog was a very real inspiration for me and for that I’ll always be thankful. May the Ribono Shel Olam give you only bracha and happiness and may your son be a Mailetz Yosher for your family and all the rest of us.

    B’birkas Kisiva Vchasima Tova,

    You do not know me. I know your father, and have tremendous respect for him. When I had heard about Eli’s illness, I immediately added him to my cholim list. I also subscribed to this blog in order to get updates. I was truly amazed by your families strength and determination to endure all adversity experienced in Eli’s battle. I never knew or met Eli, but I could tell that he was so strong, and fought the cancer until the very end.
    I unfortunately will not be able to come to the funeral, as I will be involved in the mitzvah of kibud av v’aem. But if you can livestream the funeral, I will be sure to watch it.
    Wishing you and your family a Shana Tova and a G’mar Chasimah Tovah. May we only share simchas.
