Mayor Geoffrey L. Henry Proclaims March 1st To Be “Eli Matthews Day”

Wear Eli’s favorite colors on March 1st Eli Matthews Day!!!

Family and Friends, On January 20, 2011 was the darkest time in our family’s life. We had just lost our Eli and had an unspeakable pain in our hearts.  One day the Mayor of Oxford, Geoffrey L. Henry called and told us something that truly honored us. He wanted to proclaim March 1st as ELI MATTHEWS DAY in Oxford! He created a proclamation on February 21, 2011. We were so touched that he would honor our angel in this way.  We are so excited that so many people have come to support this day in our town. We love driving around Oxford and seeing all the signs and billboards with Eli’s name on them.  I would like to ask all of you reading this that own a business no matter the State, or Country you live in to post “March 1st Eli Matthews Day help fight childhood cancer visit www.BraveEli.com” on your sign. Eli touched so many people in his life and even now continues to do so from Heaven. March 1st is quickly approaching. We hope that you will all continue to support this day by wearing red and black which were Eli’s favorite colors! Thank you all so very much for your continued support, kind words and prayers. They mean so much to my Family.
