You all do not know me but I graduated high school with Esta at Drewry Mason. I watched the video and saw that she remained the same beautiful, inside and outside, lady I knew from high school. My heart aches for all of you and you have my deepest sympathy. Brenda Wilson

To Esta's family...on behalf of my Mom, Aunt Betty Tumelavich, and me, and our family, we want to send you our love and sympathy on the loss of Esta. I know she is at Peace with Jim, and my Dad, Jims Uncle Bill. My Mom and Dad loved Jim and Esta....I remember when they came to Bridgeton, such happy memories, Esta was a lovely person, and she left a lasting impression on our family !
The memorial video was so beautiful, of course it made me cry. May the good Lord give you all peace and comfort.
All our love,
Aunt Betty Tumelavich, and cousin Carol Cavallo, and family.
