To the Magdaleno family: Your mom was a wonderful and kind lady whom I had the pleasure of knowing for a time, especially when I worked in the fields through my high school years with Irma and Sandy. I saw Esther for the last time when her brother Juan passed away. Esther was still the same sweet person I knew from many years ago. My deepest condolences to Esther's family.May you find peace and solace through this difficult time.
With love,
