  1. Gail, Lee, Jackie, Sue and all of the family, I was so saddened to hear of my sweet Aunt Esther’s passing. She was always a wonderful aunt with a great sense of humor. As you know how difficult it was when Mom passed away, I know your hearts are breaking as mine is again. However, I will remember fondly all of the good times I spent with her as a child in Connecticut; vacationing in Myrtle Beach and when she visited Tennessee. I also enjoyed visiting her a few times in Florida. As I grew up and started a family of my own, that along with the distance between us made it difficult to see each other in person but it was always good speaking with her on the phone. She always had interesting things to talk about and took an interest in my life. I am sure she knows how much we all loved her and that she truly has left a void in all of our lives. She will never be forgotten but remembered in stories that will be told for years to come. Rest in peace, Aunt Esther. I love you, Donna

  2. Lee, Gail, Jackie, Sue. I was very saddened to hear that Aunt Esther passed away. She was a great Aunt and I always enjoyed our conversations. I will always remember my trips to Connecticut and all the wonderful times we shared together. She was loved very much by everyone. I will always remember her for her great sense of humor and the laughs that we shared. I love you Aunt Esther. Debbie Hudson, Niece, Oak Ridge, TN May 7th, 2014

  3. My condolences to everyone who loved Esther, her children, grandchildren, neices and nephews. I was able to spend some time talking with and getting to know her a little better during the time her sister, my Aunt Teckla, was ill. She was a lovely lady, and I know she will be missed terribly. Much love to my cousins, Donna and Debbie, who I know will miss her very much, and my deepest sympathy to her Connecticut family.

  4. My heart is breaking with the loss of my very special Mother. She was such a special person, she worked hard all her life to raise her children. She worked two jobs to support her three children without any type of support, emotionally or financially. We always had a roof over our heads, food, clothes and especially love. She was both Mom And Dad to us. We were so happy when she met the love of her life, Jerry. She missed him terribly when he passed away four years ago in April. I have so many happy memories of her and I will miss her forever! I love you Mom with all my heart. Although I know you are at peace and no longer suffering it was so hard to say good-bye. Love you always, Lee

  5. We are sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing and send our condolences to the family. The few times we were with her she always had a smile and was happy to be with everyone. Know she will be greatly missed by her family.

  6. We are very sad to find out about Aunt Esther’s passing. Even after Uncle Jerry’s passing, she always extended her arms of welcoming to my family. We loved each visit and phone call conversation with her. Distance and passing of time have never lessened our love for her. We extend our condolences to all of you. May she rest in peace. We will miss you, Aunt Esther.
