May the Lord Jesus give you Peace and Rest and the sweet memories of Esther that will always keep her alive in your hearts. We met Esther several times at River of Life Church when her sister Hilda and family brought her there. What a sweet, lovely Lady! We can rejoice for we know she is free from the struggles of this world and now with Almighty God and Jesus and all who went before her... love, Bill and Mary

Dear Josephine and family- My wife and I are sorry to see your Mom has passed away. We knew her from my mother in law, who passed on last July, was at Country Arch, and, we used to enjoy chatting with you and her in the lobby or out on the bench. She, like you, was a real nice person, and, I'm sure she will be missed. I'm sure she passed on being proud to call you her daughter. May she rest in peace. Sincerly, Chris and Maria Sakos

I am so deeply sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to all of you. I had no idea that Aunt Esther passed away or I would have reached out sooner. Sending you all my love.
