    Aunt Esther you will truly be missed. Your smile and laugh were always a delight. I remember being younger and getting all excited knowing you and Uncle Jim, Laura and Michelle were coming to town. I think you so much for not only continuing to be family to my mom, but being a best friend to her. Many memories will remain with me. Please give all the other family that has passed a hug and especially give Aunt Chris a hug for me. Enjoy your new journey~!

    No better friend than Esther we shared our good times and our bad times for 30 years or more. We laughed together we cried together. We watched our girls become beautiful young ladies. I miss you my friend!
