As I sit here staring at my baby girl sleeping,I can't help but cry thinking of my Espinoza and Tafolla families.  Elijah was not any ordinary child, he was an amazing one of a kind child of God. Despite his sight disability, he knew who you were just by touching your face or hearing your voice.  He loved to sing his heart out every chance he had, and what a voice, if I may say so myslelf.  He loved to sing praises to our Lord, even at his weakest moments, never stopped loving God. He touched so many lives in his short but beautifully lived life.  The room would light up when he entered it.  You will forever be loved and missed champ.  We will mourn you and yes we will cry, but don't be upset little one.  It just hurts knowing we will not be able to see you, hold you, talk to you or hear your beautiful voice.  All the while still finding comfort in knowing you are rejoicing with our Lord.  You will be in no more pain, have no more disabilities, you are now a perfect little angel watching over your mom Celina Espinoza Tafolla, daddy Gilbert Tafolla, your sister Sarah and the rest of the family. Rest in Peace.

The Tafolla and Espinoza Famlies of Gilbert and Celina Tafolla, come to you to ask if you are able to help them with unexpected funeral and medical expenses for their son Elijah Tafolla,15 years old, who passed away on Saturday, August 9, 2014.

Elijah had been receiving treatment for Leukemia for several weeks, he had been able to endure the treatments and actually been ok until an infection in the blood caused complications. 

Tafolla and Espinoza families would really appreaciate any contributions that you can give to them in this time of need. God Bless every one of you for all the help and kind words that you have provided to Gilbert and Celina and their daughter Sarah.  

Thank you, and God Bless you.
