Here is to you Estelle "Blossom" My neighbor my friend and my family member by adoption, You and Rudy have been a true blessing to our family as you took us as part of your family. You helped raised my son as he was so loved by you. It is always a good feeling knowing my son never wanted to go home. He would cry and did not want to leave you. You would tell me when you took him out he would call you mama and the stares you would get. You would just smile. You were always here for me no matter what I needed you would listen and give positive advise. Always uplifting and never a negative thing to say about anyone and never judging. You will always be remembered by our family as a very kind loving soul who loved music and dancing. Love you always heaven has truly gained an angel.
