Dear Laura, Cheryl, John and families,
You are close in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time. I have many fond memories of Aunt Esther over the years. She was a kind, gentle and loving lady. May God bless and keep all of you in His care today and always.

Dear Cousins, Laura, John D., and Cheryl;
It is very hard to accept the passing of your beloved
mother. Fortunately it is a great comfort to know she
is walking on those streets of gold in Heaven with your Dad
and rejoicing! I will hold dear my memories of the Sunday family gatherings at Grandma C"s as children.

Hi John, Sorry to hear of your loss also. Seems both our moms were 91 and passed away about the same time and will both find their peace/rest in the same location - Sunset Memorial. Good luck to you and your family at this sad time.
