I only got to experience friendship with Esther in the later years of her life when we lived in the same apartment building. Always found her to be kind and friendly. I am glad that I knew her for these last few years. May God grant her family the comfort and strength needed at this time.

Janice, Kathy and families, our deepest sympathy at this difficult time. It is so hard to lose the ones we love. I know you have many wonderful memories to cherish and carry forward with you as you go forward. I remember your Mom as a friendly, cheerful person. Thoughts and prayers for comfort and healing.

My favorite memory of Esther is on Valentine's Day when she was crowned Queen for the Day at the Nursing Home. She was all smiles and so full of glee, with her three Daughters surrounding her, this is how I will always remember this special lady. May the Lord wrap His arms around the family and bring them comfort. Celebrating her life.

Thoughts and prayers to you during this sad time. Esther was a ray of sunshine with a little spunk during her weekly visits to get her hair done. We always looked forward to seeing her walk in to tell us the latest. She was a wonderful lady!
