Miss Ula, so saddened to hear of the passing of Elijah. He always made me laugh when walking the dog (Armani), saying things like: "What's that mutts name, when you gonna get rid of that mutt". Always pleasant and smiling. He will be missed. We are praying for you and your family.

Elijah, Ula and I were Classmates at Roosevelt High School. They were such a PERFECT match; both were very kind, quiet and great people. Elijah was in the band and I was a majorette and therefore, I interacted with him whenever the Roosevelt Band performed. Ula was just a beautiful person with a "sweet" smile.

Ula, I extend my sincere condolences to you and your family. I pray God will comfort your hearts during this difficult time. I will always remember you both as "awesome" people. God Bless
