Family turns tragedy into voice for others

VACAVILLE — Elyjah Whitman prefers to remember the good things. His mother’s funny laugh. Her macaroni and cheese, which he still craves.

The now 13-year-old was home with his three siblings three years ago when his mother was shot to death in the garage of the family’s Vacaville home. The gunman was his mother’s boyfriend and the father of his two youngest siblings.

Events of that night are still fresh in his mind. His older sister Andrea Corral, who was 17 at the time, woke him up, then his little brother.

“He started crying,” Elyjah said. “I thought my mom was dead. I was crying.”

The youngest child, a girl, remained asleep as all four children huddled in their mom’s bedroom.
