"Esther will ALWAYS be in my heart as being a kind, loving, supporting person. I missed her after I moved and tried to keep in touch but she wasn't a FB person. Her legacy will live on through her daughter Sherri. Thank you Esther "

"Will miss seeing Esther drive in our driveway and turn around to go to her mail box, wearing her Mickey Mouse pajamas! What a wonderful neighbor she was! Every spring she would fuss at me when I mowed the lawn for the first time, "now we all have to get out there and work"! All in good fun. RIP Esther"
