53561242_1609107121776223_r.jpegEliud Bennett JR. was born November 11, 1995.  He was a handful as well as a bundle of joy. He had a personality and a charm about him that attracted people to him like a magnet. His smile could light up a room. However hidden between the fake façade was a sad and troubled young man. For many years he fought his demons and depression. At one point in his life he found happiness through falling in love. Elio had a great big heart for children who weren't his. When he loved he loved hard. When the love wasn't returned he felt that life was over and there wasn't any use for him to be on earth. My son Eliud took his own life on December 18,2020 from a broken heart. Elio was smart and challenging. He could make you laugh and cry all at the same time. He reminded me of the movie "The 40 Year Old  Virgin" but he wasn't a virgin. He was a pain in my ass at times but I loved him dearly. We had many talks about life and where he was heading. Suicide is real especially for our young people. This epidemic should be an awakening to check up on loved ones.  I want to send Elio out in a blaze of glory for he is my hero.  I am trying to raise the funds to cremate my son and have a funeral. I need with flower arrangements, use of a casket, an urn, death certificates, charge for staff and facility, and any other charges that may accrue. I would like to raise the money as soon as possible for my son is still at the coroners. My name is Enid Bennet and I will be in charge of the funds for my sons funeral. I would like to say thank you in advance.
