Most of my favorite childhood memories include Bill and Esther. My brother Chuck, sister Cheryl & I spent summers
at Gpa Charles & Gma Ella Barrow's cabin on their property. Esther was always there with cookies and canned goodies. Always let me "help" with her
garden and flowers. I still have some
Buckeyes from their tree. It was such
a privilege to be able to see them both
a few years ago. From sharing her dog
Jiggs to the root cellar during tornados to many fish frys and spectacular 4th of Julys, there is so
many ways she touched my life. She was
a wonderful Lady. Please Girls and your
families, known your Mom was the best.
I know she is smiling down.
Esther and Bill were examples to all of us who want to live life to the fullest, and accept all aspects of life with energy and good humor. They were generous, honest, loving people. I am blessed to have known them, and appreciate the good friends they always were to my parents. Esther will continue to a part of the lives everyone who knew her.
One of my most favorite memories that I shared with Esther is on one of the Apple Orchard Bus Trips. We laughed about that day so many times when we saw each other. I also love the recipies she has given me and will keep them forever. Alec and I are thinking of your family and feel very blessed to have known Esther! You are in our prayers. Love, Jeana & Alec
