Elijah (Eli) McCroskey, a beautiful 8-year-old, died in a tragic accident on May 11th. He was a wonderful boy from Fargo, full of adventure and love. He was a social butterfly who touched many lives, and he will be missed dearly by everyone who knew him.

When you give online to this fundraiser, your gift goes directly to the family, and Lend A Hand Up provides a 20% financial boost to increase your giving value. The Lend A Hand Up boost applies solely to online gifts processed through this giving site. Should you wish to make a gift by cash or check, your generosity should be directed to the family or their fund at First Community Credit Union Bank, as Lend A Hand Up does not process cash or check gifts for families.

    So sorry about the loss of your beautiful son. The only words to say is he is smiling at God and God is smiling back at Elijah. Hold on to that…..

    There’s a special place in Heaven for this sweet boy. Heartbroken for all of you but know you are loved and held close in prayer from around the country.

    I just heard your story on Life radio. I’m accompanying my husband in Fargo for a weeks long job…we’re from Nebraska. In just the short time your son, Eli was described by his friends and grandmother, I knew he was a beautiful boy. I could feel it in my spirit….then I saw his sweet face, full of freckles. Words can’t express enough how so sorry I am for your families loss. As you experience the many stages of grief, please know that someone in Nebraska is standing in the gap for your family. My sincere condolences.

  13. James and Alison Leiman

    Eli was a frequent visitor at our house on 10th street and was a great friend to our son and enthusiastic Pokemon card trader. He’d often stand on my front lawn and ask him to come out and plan, shouting “bring your binder” (of cards) and they’d pour over them for hours. My heart breaks that the world lost his fun and free spirit so early. Holding the family in my thoughts. XO

  14. Marty and Deb Fetch
