    My parents and I met Esther, when attending the First Alliance Church, which was located downtown many years ago. Esther was always a wonderful person, friendly, gracious and a real lady. She had a radiant smile on her face at all times and greeted us warmly every Sunday at Church. I know that my parents have now met her in Heaven.

  4. Children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
    May the Lord be your comfort, strength, and fill you all with HIS peace.
    I got to know Esther at the Far East Broadcast dinners in Calgary. She was a faithful attender.
    She was a joy, just to be in her presence.
    The Lord granted her a long life. I lost my dear husband, at the age of 74 last Jan. 15, 2014. He loved talking to Esther. Now they are in the presence of the Lord and will live eternally.
    May we all be found faithful till our names will be called. We will see our loved ones again.
    Anna Gutowski now living in Edmonton.
