Elijah Terrell Hobbs, son of Sherell Lymon and Michael Hobbs was born following after his twin brother Evan on July 11, 2019 at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, Ma departed this life on July 21, 2019.

Elijah came into this world with eyes, a nose, and lips like mommy with the cutest little face you ever seen. His eyes so innocent beautiful and brown, his wide and a bit pointy nose, with perfect little lips. He had the loveliest dark brown skin with long straight black hair.

Elijah had small but oh so long fingers with flat feet just like daddy. He enjoyed laying skin to skin on his mother’s chest or being laid out across daddy’s big belly also griping daddy’s pinky during feedings or even while dad pulled slightly revealing his long arms and his amazing strength. When he was wide awake he would stick out his tongue as you talked to him. Elijah had this soft but powerful cry and his baby smell was always reassuring.

Elijah is survived by his mother Sherell, his father Michael, twin brother Evan, three older brothers Jomari, Zaylin, Ethan, one sister Zaelah, his grandparents, nana Karen, Papa Thurgood, grandma Valerie, grandpa Calvin, Godmother Deanna, seven uncles, four aunts and a host of great aunts great uncles and cousin.

We know there will be days that are so hard to get through, days that feel like too much to bear, days where you'll feel like you can hardly function and days you'll act "as if" you're doing fine but you are dying inside, somedays you'll be numb and some days you'll be angry and can't make sense of anything. It is those days that we pray that you find comfort in the memories of the time spent with Elijah. Sherell, Michael, and family, We are so sorry for your loss. Words will never be enough to express the sorrow we feel for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Please cling onto the memories and know that Elijah was cherished and nurtured for his short life by the loving family you are. We hope these dark clouds will roll away for you soon and you can remember Elijah’s life as the special gift he truly was, We know your family will give you support and help you to cope over this difficult time. Always remember each new life no matter how brief forever changes the world, Love you all. PJ, Jacquie & Family.
