Elijah Thomas was taken from his family on April 30, 2012 after only 12 short days of life. Elijah suffered from a congenital heart disease, Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome. Due to many complications after procedures and surgery to help heal Eli’s broken heart, our baby boy died in the comfort of his parents arms. Elijah is survived by his loving parents Ronald and Tera (Parry) Farhat, brother Carter Vandlen, sisters Lexi Farhat, Paige and Ryan Mae Vandlen, grandparents Ronald and Patricia Farhat and Terry and Charlene Parry; great grandmothers Joyce Celentino and Ruth Helen Parry; uncles and aunts Chris and Cherri Farhat, cousin Christopher; Alex and Wendy Coss, cousins Alexis, Tyler, Jacob and Anna; Matthew and Christie Parry, cousins Zach, Abby, Gavin, and Max; . Elijah was preceded in death by his sister Madison Farhat and we can only hope the babies are together in heaven. A private funeral is being held Thursday, May 3rd for the immediate family only. The family is asking that donations be made in Elijah’s name to the Whole Heart Foundation, (wholehearts.org), at 7025 CR 46a Suite 1071 #116, Lake Mary, FL 32746, or to Ronald McDonald House Charities, 1600 Washington Heights, Ann Arbor, MI 48104. The Farhat family would love to give a special thank you to the Medical Staff at CS Mott Children’s Hospital for their spectacular care of Elijah and the love they showed to our family. You were Eli’s Angels. Also, thank you to everyone who followed Elijah’s story at Elijahfarhat.com. Your prayers, thoughts and hopes were not only felt by Ron and me, but also by Eli. “God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The world gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought life to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it”– John 1 3-5. Elijah’s light will shine forever.
