Elijah Stasche Eckhardt of Glenwood, Florida, lovingly known as Weeble to his family and friends, was taken home to Jesus on Sunday morning, February 27th, 2011 at 10:46 AM, after a tragic swimming pool accident. He is a great joy to all who know him, and is loved by many people. His family will miss him terribly, but are so comforted by the LORD's love and salvation. Until they too are called home, Weeble leaves behind Mommy and Daddy, Jennifer and Troy; siblings Kaj, Japheth, Heike, Silas, and Katie; grandparents Betty and Sam Eckhardt, and Betty Gunter; Aunt Tricia, Uncle Stan, and cousins CJ, Hannah, and Samuel; Aunt Susie, Uncle Herbie and cousins Herbie, Abby, and Nathan; Uncle Eric and many, many friends. Services will be held at 1:00 PM on Friday, March 4 at the BIBLE Baptist Church, 872 Glenwood Road, DeLand. A memorial fund has been set up in Weeble's name at TD Bank. You may share your memories with the family at www.lankfordfuneralhome. com. Lankford Funeral Home in DeLand is in charge of arrangements.

Jenny and Troy,

We are so sorry to hear of the loss of little Weeble! No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. Grief can be so hard, but we pray your special memories of him will help you cope and bring you comfort. You now have an one of the Lord's angels watching over you! Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief and we are remembering you and your little angel today and always. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you at this time.

Elijah was a very spirited little boy. I had the honor of taking care of him in the tot lot at daycamp in the summer of 2009. My son Noah is the same age and they were cute. At lunch they sat in highchairs next to one another and always shared each others lunch. It was always great to see how this family had such love for one another. Unfortunately,that is becoming a rare trate in today's society. I hope that as a family you can keep each other strong and you are all in my prayers.

Any loss of any youngster is tragic, especially to those near. A physical mishap can seem even more difficult to deal with from its sudden, unexpected nature. Even though he is physically departed, his love will always be with you in spirit and in mind. Blessings in love and light.

Troy & Jennifer,
Our prayers and thoughts are with you during this painful tragedy. Elijah is just a couple months older than our baby boy and I can never begin to imagine the pain you feel. Just remember Jesus chooses only the best as His angels. We will continue to pray for comfort for your entire family. I can not think of 2 stronger parents than you. God Bless You!
