My aunt Esther was one of the bravest woman I know. After losing her husband (my uncle Richard) I saw the deepest pain and hurt in her eyes, something I had really never seen as a young adult, but she chose to keep going, she chose to trust Jesus! She continued to raise two BEAUTIFUL daughters ( and me most of my sophomore and Junior year Lol)
I Loved making her laugh! Her eyes would Light up! And she had the most beautiful smile. She always made me
feel loved and special.
My Aunt Esther is the main reason I gave my life to Christ, a huge reason why my family serves God. I loved her big time!
She always has “Kujos” in the pantry!
Stephanie Andrea Aunt Esther and I were attached like glue for a couple
Years, Gods amazing like that. They had just lost the Father in their life but lead me to find MY FATHER for eternity!
I love you all so much
Aunt Esther I will see you in the blink of an eye!
Uncle Ken I love you and Esther very much. I miss her already and am going to miss our teasing each other. She was a wonderful person. So loving and caring. I am so happy Esther is with so many more people that love her. She seemed to touch everyone she meets. Now your home with the Lord.
My precious Aunt Esther, oh how you will be missed! I have loved you my whole life. You were my sweet “Toot Toot”. My heart breaks for you, Steph, Andrea, Nick, Ken and the rest of the family. I take comfort in the fact that she is no longer hurting or confused and is in perfect health. She is more alive right now than any of us left behind, and there was a multitude of family there to welcome her HOME. She is dancing on the streets of gold with Jesus (and I suspect, Elvis) now. I love you guys!
I have so many precious memories of Esther. She was the most precious and kind woman. A great prayer partner, who loved Jesus so much. Esther and Richard were youth sponsors when I was the youth leader. Boy did we have some great times? Esther used to call us many Saturday mornings and say ” come over, I have made a breakfast casserole” and then we would spend the entire day together. She will truly be missed, but now she is walking those streets of gold and completely whole.
Ken, so sorry to hear about Esther I know She will be greatly missed by all. Keep the faith and your chin up.
