Our sympathy to the entire family We have known Ester for a very long time. I worked with Ester at the Dairy and Mary Lou worked with her at White's store in the sixties. We have always enjoyed her company and sharing memories about old times.

Dear Janet, Brian and Robin and family. Please accept our condolence in the death of your Mother. A very special lady indeed. I worked with Esther many a time in the kitchen at Knox for whatever fundraiser we were hosting - always had time to talk and always a big smile. I also remember the amazing banana cream pies that she made - her secret was: she put a chair in front of the oven so that she could watch the meringue brown perfectly (her words). She will be missed.

To Janet and Brian and your families, our deepest condolences. Aunt Esther was always such a happy and positive person in our lives. Christmas at your house was the highlight of the year and the fact that she opened the doors to all of us each year made it such a memorable event that has stayed with me to this day. Our summer vacations together at the various cottages are also a memory I will cherish forever. Whenever we got together, Aunt Esther was always so open and welcome to Barb and I and we can still hear her laugh. Take care.
