    Anita, Lisa, Calvin, Darwin, Mel and families, Esther and I became friends about 50 plus years ago in Roblin working as nurses’ aides. She was a good person and a wonderful friend. I feel she is now at a place of peace, free from pain and worry. May you also find peace in your hearts and solace in good memories of your Mom. Deepest sympathy, Alice and Gil

    Sincere sympathies to Mel and to Esther’s children on the passing of Esther. I so enjoyed sharing a friendship with her in our Red Hat Society outings at Sun Life Resort in Mesa. She and Mel were excellent dancers and sure enjoyed the social life here.

    Dear Mel and Esther’s family, What a lovely lady we met and knew in Sun Life. She was such a good person, kind, gentle and a great person to be with. We had many enjoyable times with Mel and Esther; especially Mel’s 80th birthday when we secretly ordered a beautiful clock for his birthday and had it sent to our trailer. What a nice time. Everyone will miss the Esther. We pray God’s love for each of you at the time of her passing. Love to all, Carl & Linda

    Mel, Esther’s children and families,
    I was very sorry to hear of Esther’s passing. My mother Alice Anderson was very good friends with Esther for many years. I had met Esther several times in Calgary, while visiting with my mother. She was always so lovely and kind. She was a wonderful friend to my mother. My heartfelt sympathies, thoughts and prayers are extended to your entire family at this time.
