I was so fortunate to get to know Esty during my time at Memorial Sloan. She was the sweetest woman I’ve ever met and I truly valued our friendship more than words could say. We lost a good one.
Thinking of the entire Parlanti family, especially her grand babies who she talked so highly of.

Tita Esty, as I fondly call her, knew that I loved to travel. She would let Vicky and I tag along with her when she attends her business conferences, go to religious pilgrimages, and enjoy food and culture during road trips. Tita Esty was able to fulfill the wanderlust dreams of a 6-year old girl who only imagined of wonderful places she just read in books. I felt so blessed just being with her and can never thank her enough for the love, care and thoughtfulness she showered on me and my family. I love you Tita Esty, you will surely be missed!

I am truly grateful and Blessed to have Ma’am Esty as a boss. She gave me a chance to start my professional career when no one else didn’t. She was so selfless, generous, thoughtful and caring. She cares about her employees and treats them as a family. Not only has she thought about her employees but also their families. To be a part of a company (MEGA) that feels like FAMILY is rare and I am very lucky and thankful to have it.

Thank you for everything Ma’am Esty, for your wisdom and kindness, it was an honor to have known you. We love you and will be forever in our hearts!

Our deepest sympathy and prayers to Sir Gino and family. Godbless!
