Suzanne and I are sorry for your loss. Your mother had a long and full life but I know you will still miss her. I haven't seen her in a number of years, but looking at the pictures brought back many fond memories. Our prayers are with you.

I worked with Esther at Southern Life for four years. She was a wonderful mentor with a wicked sense of humor. I always enjoyed picking on her but I had to be ready to receive as well as give!

I hope you find comfort in knowing that she was loved and will be missed by a lot of people.
