To all of Esther's dear family,

My heart is sad at the loss of sweet Esther. We have missed her at Oak Grove while she was in Florida and we will continue to miss her sweet smile and her terrific hugs! She was a dear lady and always made me feel good with her warm smile and sweet spirit. Heaven gained another beautiful angel for sure! My prayer for you all is that God will continue to heal, comfort and love you in the days ahead. With my deepest sympathy and love, Kay Brown

The best Thanksgiving I have ever had was when your parents came to my house for dinner. I was truly blessed to have known them both. I am so very sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful woman.

We have only know Miss Esther for a few years but she filled our hearts with such love. She came to our Family Life church group with George and Pat and we immediately fell in love with her. She had the most amazing smile. We are so great full to have met Esther. Thank you for sharing your mom with us. God bless all of you.

I met Mrs Goode back in 1974, I was 16 years old. Cathy and I met in HS. Mrs. Goode was so kind to me. My favorite memories of her were stopping by the Produce stand (wether I needed Produce or not) on Statesville Ave. I just wanted to see Mrs. Goode. She would always say here comes Cathy's friend. Met me with a smile and a hug. I love her. God Bless!
