    Esther was such a lovely woman and a great friend to me! I will cherish our friendship forever. She was never too busy to share stories, sit down and visit, pray, whatever she could to bring love and sunshine into my life. She was always there for me. I will forever miss her, but am so glad she is finally home with our dear Lord and GOD the Father, which she so longed for.

    Aunt Esther, we spent so many visits together, in person or on the phone outside your window. I loved all of our moments! I will miss you and cherish you! And yes, my hair is still messy! I love you. Xo
