    Esther was a wonderful lady, it was fun to go and see her when she moved to the Senior home in Gladstone. She always welcomed us when she was still in her home in Gladstone. She cooked a great dinner for all of us girls who belonged to a 31 Club, how long ago was that? Time has gone so fast. She loved all of her children and grandchildren and would show you the latest pictures of them. God Bless you Esther as the Lord welcomed you home. Sympathy to your family.
