I extend my deepest sympathies to you and your family. I will miss Esther's colorful sense of humor, our conversations about world events and her stopping by to chat while I was outside doing yard work. May she rest in peace and may our Lord bless and comfort you and your family during this time of grief.

Gayle and Jim
