    We would like to send our deepest sympathy to the family. We did not know Esther May personally but know two of her family members, Ellen and Cindy. She must have been a great lady because both Ellen and Cindy have wonderful traits. Having knowing both for about 11 years, have heard about the wonderful large family times, spent at Esther’s home. May peace and memories of these wonderful moments be always in the family’s hearts forever.

    I am very sorry to hear that your wife (mom) passed away. I am not sure if you knew of me but I was one of her brothers (Raymond)’s children. My mom was Claudia. Again I pass on my condolences to everyone. She was in my heart and thought about her often
