  1. Dear Nancy and Sally, I would like to convey my sympathy to you and all of your family. Esther was a very good friend and remarkable in so many ways. How fortunate you were to have her for ninety seven years. I have memories from 1946, when we first began to play bridge. I shall miss her. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers, Priscilla Chatfield

  2. Dear Nancy, Sally, Bob and Carly. I am so sorry for your loss. Nancy, I’ll try to call you tonight (5/11), but I know you have so much going on and are going on a trip. In case I don’t get to speak to you personally before you leave, I just want you to know how much Esther meant to me. We saw her and Charlie many times when we lived in New Jersey, and she was always so hospitable. I remember your many family trips to Minnesota when you were younger when Grandma was still alive. We always looked forward to your visits. We will all miss her. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Jay and Nancy
