I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared her love.

Esther was such a wonderful person. It's so hard to accept that she won't be with us in this life any longer, but we know we will see her again in Heaven. Our comfort is in knowing she is in the place with no illness and no sorrow.

We treasure all the happy memories, especially of her on the dance floor in Texas. We all had such good times. It's impossible to think of them now without tears flowing.

We send all our condolences to you, Chuck, and to the entire family. God bless you all.
