We remember that "great big smile" when we would visit at the home. Essie always made us feel welcome and we enjoyed her company. We were just thinking about her this week, not knowing that she had already gone to be in her heavenly home. In seeing her tribute, we saw how happy she was and how many experiences she had shared with her family. We wish the family our best wishes in this time of remembering.
