I visited Esther in the summer of 2012 and am so glad I was able to spend some time with her. She squeezed my hand and gave me that wonderful smile which I remembered so well. Esther was a kind and gentle spirit and I know she is at peace within her maker's realm.

Your family is in our prayers. I remember Esther as a lady who liked to laugh and go to Happy Chef for coffee with Lavonne. I hope good memories bring you peace and joy.

We're sorry for your loss and pray you'll feel God's comforting presence in this time. I remember being warmly welcomed in your home, and Esther's kind spirit, when we came to Mitchell with Lavonne.
