We grieve that our sister in Christ is gone, but God called his angel back to heaven.
My beloved sister-in-law is at home with God. We rejoice in her home going, but grieve in our loss. May God’s peace be with us all.
May God remain close to the family of dear Esther. You grieve but not like those who have no hope. Our hope is in the Jesus she loved.
God blessed me with a wonderful sister. She was a gifted pianist with a beautiful singing voice. She used her many talents to serve the Lord. We will miss her.
Esther was a dear friend of 45+ years. I have such fond memories of our times together. I’m sad that she is no longer with us here, but I rejoice that she is with the Lord. I’ll miss her. I’m praying for the family.
I have precious memories of Esther going all the way back from attending church as a child and spending time with Annette and Anita to going to trio practices with Esther, Jimmie and my daddy. I didn’t see her very often after I married and moved away, but every time I would come home with my family and visit Ensley I was always greeted with a hug and that sweet smile of hers. She would always comment about how my kids were growing up and then lovingly talk about her grandchildren and how they were growing up too. She loved her family fiercely. Annette and Anita, she was so proud of you both. She loved her Lord and Savior. I know she will be greatly missed, but we’ll see her again one day. We will continue to pray that God will give the family comfort and strength in the days ahead.
