  1. We were saddened to see of Esta’s passing. She was very kind and we always enjoyed seeing and talking with her. We will miss her. Our deepest sympathy to her family.

  2. I am so very sorry for your loss. Esta was my grandma in every sense of the word. She always had a smile and sweet words for us when we visited and we enjoyed cards in the mail or an occasional phone call.We were able to enjoy a sweet visit just after Christmas when she was able to meet our newest family member, Claire. I loved how she spoke of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and know she did that every time we were together. She would share her latest family pictures and was very proud of all your accomplishments. I will miss her and our visits very much. Prayers of comfort for all of you. I know you will cherish all your precious memories as I will. Cathy

  3. It was an honor to care for your mother! We enjoyed having her and your family as part of the Care Center!
