    Esther is my cousin but we grew up as sisters. I was one day older and we enjoyed wishing each other happy birthday every year. I will miss that. I loved her laugh and her sweet nature and will miss her til the day we meet again.

    Aunt Esther was so special to me. She made me feel loved when I questioned decisions being made and loved and included me.

    A true angel. She always had a smile on her face and could and would always put a smile on others. We met years ago as friends only to end up later as family. She was loved so much by everyone that ever met her. She will be greatly missed. RIP my dear friend and sister in law. We love you.
