To Esther's family: My deepest condolences on the loss of your Mother. Esther was always kind to me, good natured, and always quick to laugh. The recent loss of my own mother deepens my sympathy for you all. Esther sent me the prettiest card with a lovely handwritten message inside. She will be missed.
