"Tia Esther, I miss you so very much. It will never be the same without you here. I have so many, many great memories of you and will always hold them dear to my heart. You were an amazing Tia, thank you so much for all you did for all of us. Our lives have been touched in a way that most people don't get in there life time, but you loved us all and taught us how to be loving and that being around all of your family is very important. What a blessing for us to always have in our hearts and to know that our children shared in all these special blessings as well. Tia I know you are with my mom now and I know one day all of us will see you again, and until we meet again know that you will be very missed. I love you so much Tia.

Auntie Esther, I am going to miss you so much. I have nothing but fond memories of you. From the many Easter and Thanksgiving celebrations at your home, to the times you would come and spend time with us in the bay area, and the many times we would just sit and talk. You were the best at remembering our birthdays and I always received a birthday card from you. You were the most giving, forgiving person who loved unconditionally. You never said no to anyone! Though, its so difficult to know that you are no longer with us, I know you are no longer in any pain and are now with other loved ones that greeted you at the gates of heaven. Rest in peace, Auntie Esther…you will never be forgotten. xox

Dear Nana Little did we know that evening god was to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same, It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone. For part of us went with you. The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, Your always at our side an in our hearts. Our family is broken an nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one we will be together again, My beautiful Nana I thank God for you everyday your beautiful smile, your loving heart, all the blessed times we had together, we will forever cherish them, I will never recover your passing. Till we see you again. thank you my Nana I love you with all my heart an soul. Skinny, Jim, Danny , Michelle! Anthony,

Oh Tia Esther how I am missing you terribly. I still can't believe you are not here with us. I no it's for the better and you are at peace but I hate knowing when I visit your house you won't be there to say hi Sammy. I miss staying the night at your house and watching the sound of music. I miss falling asleep to you praying such a long prayer. I remember I used to ask u why it was so long and you would say cause I love u that much. I miss waking and eating the same brand of toast over and over. All the memories I have will get me through this pain I will always have. I will always miss u. You are my Tia Esther forever and always love you so much and see you someday.

Tia Ester, Life will not be the same without you in it. I will miss your coy smile and your stories of past. But the memories are with me always. I'm so happy your in your new glorious body and able to do whatever your heart desires. Dance for me, for I'll see you again. I love you and miss you greatly.

Esther, though you have gone to be with our lord it was to soon, but I understand because I didn't want to see you suffer anymore. Though I'm going to miss you so so much someday we will be together again and we will rejoice. I know you are in a better place where you have no more pain and no more tears. You will always be with me in my heart and in my memories you will always be missed. Love you so much.

love you and miss you
