Eli was obsessed with his Mickey Mouse pajamas and his snacks, consisting mainly of bananas, cuties, sour gummy worms, Slim Jim’s, and chocolate milk, which always had to be filled all the way to the top. Playing with his Peppa Pig figurines, his purple Pay-Doh, and “Hide and Go Peek” where many things he enjoyed to do, but the top of his list was being outdoors, especially going to the park where he could run “Eli Fast!”. Eli was a true fighter and a hero to all who knew him.
