Angels are sent to earth just for a little while then they return back to heaven when their work is finished. You have left a legacy with Motown so Motown can continue to live on and be remembered as you continue to live on through family,friends and Motown. Thanks to all the family and friends who shared this special angel with the world. May the sweet memories continue to comfort you as she rest in peace.

My sincere condolences to all mourning the loss of this very special lady. I grew up listening to various Motown artists on 45's. One day I hope to get up to the museum-thank goodness she led such a valiant effort to create one!

What a fine legacy of musical genius left after the Gordys. Someday the quality of that music will return, I hope. We just never know the people behind the scenes of greatness exposed. God bless Esther's family during their sad time.

It is with such sadness that I too mourn this loss. We are and have been touched by the Gordy legacy which spilled over into Toledo years ago. We will remember her for her fortitude in keeping memories alive through Hitsville. I have visited the museum and it was such a blessing to see history remembered. May she rest with the Lord and may "Motown" live on in all of our hearts. We are praying for you family.

Hymn

When storms arise
And dark’ning skies
About me threat’ning lower,
To Thee, O Lord, I raise mine eyes,
To thee my tortured sprit flies
For solace in the hour.

The mighty arm
Will let no harm
Come near me nor befall me;
Thy voice shall quiet my alarm,
When life’s great battle waxeth warm --
No foeman shall appall me.

Upon thy breast
Secure I rest,
From sorrow and vexation;
No more by sinful cares oppressed,
But in thy presence ever blest,
O God of my salvation.

Paul Laurence Dunbar

Mrs. Edwards is resting upon the breast of God with no sinful cares. May you use this fact to comfort you during this time of sorrow. May you also use all of the wonderful times that you had with Mrs. Edwards to further ease your sorrow. Mrs. Edwards will surely be missed by all who knew her. May she rest in peace.

I remember meeting Mrs. Edwards at the party of a classmate when I was a teenager. The party took place in the pool house at the Gordy Mansion on W. Boston Blvd. and she stopped in to say hello to everyone. She was a very gracious woman and I have always treasured the memory of that visit to the famed Gordy home. May God bless and keep the soul of Esther Gordy-Edwards and grant her family strength as they mourn her passing.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

Thank you for keeping "Motown" what it is. I am a product of the 60's and I listened to Motown and the Beatles. Quite a combo and I am a better person because of it. Rest in Peace and God Bless you and your family
