Just wanted you to kow how very sorry I was to hear of Aunt Esther's passing. I know she has been through a lot in the past few years, but now you can all find comfort in the fact that she is in the arms Of our Savior, and reunited with your dad and Warren and the rest of the family. It is never easy to lose a parent and when it is the last one, that makes it really hard. But you have each other and that should be of great comfort. Again I am really sorry for your loss, I have so many good memories of years ago and I know you do to. Thoughts and prayers are with you,

Love Joanie
