My Sincere Condolences to the entire Gaytan family especially her son’s and grandchildren.
I worked with Esther for several years at the Hospital District. I will forever treasure our lunch dates together especially those at her moms home. May you now Rejoice in the Kingdom of our Heavenly Father.

I would like to express my deepest condolences to all the Gaytan Family. I met Esther when we were students at Ella Barnes Jr. High. She was always a very kind and hard working individual. I know Jesus and Our Lady of Guadalupe have you in their loving arms. Rest in peace until we see each other again.

I want to express my deepest and heartfelt sympathy especially to Gabe, Mike, Niki, Kira, Fabien and all of the Gaytan family in the loss of your loved one, Esther. I knew her as a very kind and loving grandmother who made many special memories for Niki and Kira they will always treasure, cherish, and emulate.

We give thanks to God for the privilege of letting her be part of our lives and we know she is in His tender care and has greeted her with, "Well done, good and faithful servant!"

May the Peace of God that surpasses all understanding be with the family now and forevermore.

My deepest condolences to the Gaytan family may God give you the comfort that only He can give. I worked with Esther in Financial Assistance for 21 years I will always remember her as a great person, she was the first person to train me when I transferred to that department, I have many good memories of her, due to the covid-19 I will not be able to attend her services but know that my heart and prayers are with all her family, may she Rest in Peace....
