We are so very sorry to hear of Aunt Esther's passing. When I saw her in April of this year, I was amazed at how full of life she was, still, even at 94. Same bright eyes, beaming smile, and elegant appearance. And still so ready to laugh at life's little mysteries. A very special person, and I know she will be missed terribly. With our most sincere condolences, Melanie and family.

Just wanted to add to the posted obituary, that my mother would have been 95 on October 1st, and that is why we are going to have a celebration of her life on her birthday. We had high hopes that she would be with us for her 95th, but there was divine intervention that had a different agenda. May she rest in peace knowing she will be greatly missed.

So sorry to hear of her passing. She was a wonder Godly women who raised a wonderful Godly family. She always had a smile on her face and a wonderful sense of humor. She was always kind hearted and loving towards all she met in this world. I was very blessed to have known her and she had always made me and my family feel like we were part of her family. She embraced my family's weird sense of humor and often joined in with our jokes and pranks to each other. She was a incredible wife and mother and grandmother to her family. She will be greatly missed. May her family be blessed with love and comfort from above during this time.

What a wonderful lady. Ester is the last of my parent's closest friends to pass on. What true friends they were. I was so happy that Cheryl brought Ester to Aunt Martha's viewing. I commented to her about how beautiful she looked (not a wrinkle!). She responded that I was full of sh..t. That's exactly the way my mom would have responded. What great parents we both had. With deepest sympathy. Ronnie Krusienski
