Aunt Estelle had a beautiful smile and laugh and loved her family with a big heart. We will miss her dearly. Prayers especially for her husband Carter and my father Bill, her last remaining brother.

I have known Estelle for almost 40 years, she
was the grandmother of my children Jennifer Callaway and Timothy Hall and greatgrandmother of my grandchildren Koby and Taylor Callaway and Tyler Hall. Estelle was a very kind, loving, caring person. She became one of the closest confidants I ever had and I grew to love her like a mother. She always worried about those she loved more then she ever did herself! Marrying Carter seem to make her happier then I ever knew her to be. She loved her mother and father and talked all the time about her brothers. She called Ronny " baby brother" Her called her "Big sis" She left many footprints on my heart by showing me what a " mother" was. I will feel her loss until I meet her again.

My dearest Cousin, Estelle - I will terribly miss our precious weekly phone talks, especially our last one on 25th October. I never thought that this would be our last conversation, my dearest Cousin. If your Son, Bobby Ray reads this, please have him contact me as I would love to hear from him. My deepest condolences and prayers, God bless and I love you so much.
