I miss you! I know God had other plans for you. I cant help but think a little selfiish. Even though your not physically here with me baby your always on my mind. I see you everyday! One day if God permits i will hold you again. Your so brave! I was by your side the whole time! I miss you! Nobody understands. The pain fades for them. I became nobody and i still hurt and theres nobody to comfort me. This is where i need you.i remember when we were in that ladys house when we didnt have any where to go and i layed my head on your chest listening to your heart and u played in my hair. I love you so much and i miss you terribly! You keep me strong you keep me strong for your brothers and sister. I miss you! I love you! XoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoXoxox

Elias, your story has touched me in more way than one. It sadens me that your parents lost you the way they did, my little boy just went to sleep and never woke up. I like seeing the other baby angels that are in heaven with my son. My heart goes out

You touched many lives near & far! Seeing your precious little face & how happy you were without a worry in the world has made me have a whole new outlook on life & to cherish every moment. Life is too short to worry about the little stuff! RIP Angel

I am a South African, and deeply touched and heart sore over this. May God be with Elias's parents. Time will make life easier, but the pain will never end. You are in our hearts and prayers.

The Tragedy on Feb 24, 2011

Shared by Traci Bradley on April 12, 2011

A 22-year-old woman will face at least one felony charge after a fire at her west Houston day care last week claimed the lives of four toddlers and injured three others.

Jessica Rene Tata is charged with reckless injury to a child involving serious bodily injury, according to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. The charge could be upgraded and more charges could be filed, officials said.

"We have requested that she be held at no bond," said Donna Hawkins, spokeswoman for the Harris County district attorney's office.

Tata operated a home-based day care where seven children were under her supervision when a fire broke out on Thursday afternoon.

A law enforcement source said Tata had left the children and had gone to a store when the blaze began.

When she returned with a bag of groceries and opened the door, smoke poured out of the house and she began screaming for help, a witness said.

Tata's brother, Ron Tata, 26, has denied those allegations, saying that she was at the house when the fire started and passed out.

Tata was not in custody of law enforcement Sunday night, said Houston Fire Department Chief Investigator Leo Gonzalez, who is heading the arson investigation into the fire. Gonzalez declined to give further details.

Asked if there would be other charges related to the case, Hawkins said, "The case remains under investigation. This charge is being filed."

The district attorney's office has not yet released details of the charge or its degree.

Reached late Sunday, District Attorney Pat Lykos said she could not detail the nature of the charges or a possible sentence.

Seven toddlers in home

The fire at the west Houston day care brought emergency responders into a frantic rush to rescue the seven toddlers, ranging in age from 16 months to 3 years, who were in Tata's care.

They rushed small unresponsive bodies out of the building and began administering CPR on the front lawn to as many as three children at a time.

Witnesses described firefighters with toddlers in their arms rushing down the street toward ambulances.

Four of the children died, Elias being one of them.

Jessica Tata had fled the country, but is now back in Houston, TX facing charges and is currently in jail.
