    Esther became my friend in 1962, when I was newly married and moved in next door to her. She was my mentor, my guardian, and my best friend for many years. My four boys adored her and she treated them like grandchildren. I visited Esther in the Upper Peninsula several times and she had not changed one bit !! A wonderful lady….and I’m sure her angel wings were awaiting her.

    I was a young girl that grew up in Burton,MI neighborhood with Esther and Harley as neighbors. I remember Esther well. She was always so kind to everyone. I’m very sorry for your loss! Heaven has gained a true angel.
