    Dear Vicki, David, Rick & Lori – You have no idea how sad I was to hear about the passing of your mom. Aunt Esta was such a wonderful person and I have so many terrific memories of her, Uncle Earl and the family. The only thing that makes her passing easier is the fact that she is finally with Uncle Earl again and I know that she missed him terribly. I am so sorry that I could be there in person to give you all hugs. I love you all!
