Esther and Norm are a big part of my childhood memories growing up next door to them on Strawberry Lane. They were both wonderful people. My condolences to Tim and Leah and all the rest of the family.

Your Mom held my hand during the birth of my daughter. I think of her every Christmas when I put a small angel on the tree that she gave me at the time of Ketura's birth. She was a wonderful person and great neighbor. She touched many, many lives.
