Dear Aunt Esther, Godmother, may you now be at peace. I will always cherish the memory of Sunday at grandma's house and the Halloween party you and Uncle Tom hosted at your house in Westmont. Say hi to Bronco for me.

May God bless you Auntie Esther. I hope you have eternal peace now that you are with Uncle Tom, your brothers and Grandma and Grandpa. I'll never forget the fun parties you had in Westmont and our "cousins bike hikes" to The Longhorn.
Rest In Peace.
