I am sorry to hear that Esther passed. Of course it threw us a spin. Esther was a good aunt, and we had some good times visiting. She tried hard to teach Ed and I to play cards, but the best I could do was rummy…Ha. I know the family enjoyed some vacations in Colorado, and I will think of you when I go visiting the snowy mountains. You were an angel to Esther, Thank you for all you did to make her life bearable. Praise God for her new freedom.
I worked with Esther for years. She was such a sweet lady and wonderful co-worker. Prayers to your family.
Dear Cindy: You were so fortunate to have each other. She will be fondly remembered.
