Estelle along with the other members of The Ronettes, were a major part of the music industry. I personally will miss her, and her personality was one of the most warm and gentle ones that has ever touched my soul. Doing concerts together and on tour, were always both entertaining as well alot of excitement indeed.
Once again I am deeply sadden, at her passing and express my deepest prayers and thoughts to Ronnie Spector and her wonderful family.

I was very young when they were hit, and only now do I know the whole history of the group I'm from Brazil and I was born in the 60s a time that I think is very good in terms of music. I feel as if I had known and lived at the time.
April 18, 2010
You added joy and happiness to my life - Thank you!!!!

For Estelle...

Lady...you are truly missed
This is for you...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

Bless you, Ms. Estelle; you brought joy to millions. May you find rest at last in heaven. We will never forget you. :)
May 04, 2009
I never met her, but she brought a wonderful beauty into my life when I needed it most. It breaks my heart that her life was so painful for so long. I recently came across this mantra:
I experience the unreal to understand reality,
I experience darkness to understand the light,
I experience death to understand what is eternal.
Beauty and grace are all of these. Thank you, Estelle.
March 25, 2009
I first saw The Ronettes at The Brooklyn Fox Theater in 1964. I had a front row seat. Stayed and watched all 3 shows. I'll never forget it.

Estelle's passing hurt me, even though I didn't know her personally. Well, at least she is at peace now. Rest easy, Estelle.

May The Good Lord look after your family. And thank you for the music and the memories.

We were cheerleaders together at George Washington H.S. but more than that, we were friends. I took a look at the picture we took, posed in our uniforms. Even then, Estelle had flair. Rest in peace Estelle. Thanks for the memories.
March 17, 2009
Your memory lingers on. We love you.
March 14, 2009
Growing up in Harlem in the 1960s you always heard about the Motown groups being from Detroit. I remember being so proud knowing that the Ronettes were from my "hood." Rest in peace, Estelle. You're class and beauty will not be forgotten and will live on forever with the Ronettes' music.
March 05, 2009
Thank You for your happy and cheerful music. You have brought a shinning light with your voice. St. Louis, Mo. Will always keep on hearing you. Sing and be happy. God has and will bless your family. Thank you again. St. Louis, Mo. will miss you! We will still listen to you!
March 05, 2009
I listened to the Ronnetts at a very young age with my sister, who
we lost to cancer at age 59 last year, we used to dance to their music
and had a great time doing so, May God Bless! Karen, ironton,ohio

Thanks for the memories" Rest in Peace.
February 19, 2009
I lost my mother and brother in less than a year; my brother was 45, my mother was 67. I remember your music when I was a little child; it was the most beautiful sounding thing; and you are right: you werent better than the others, just different (which actually is better, by my reckoning). the genuine always is different; what else could or would genuine be? music is like nothing else; as a president now gone once said quoting someone else: "music is the only bit of heaven we have here on earth." your sister is where the music is. God bless and keep you beautiful woman and your good man God has given you; say a prayer for me and my beloved. k_b14@yahoo.com

Dear Ronnie, Nedra and Family,
My deepest condolences to you at this extremely sad time. My favorite memories are of you girls at George Washington HS in NYC. Yes it was true, the most beautiful women in NYC attended "Gee Dubs." Proud of you then as now. Thank you for all that you've given over the years. Much love.
February 18, 2009
God bless and comfort your family during this time. Rest in peace!

A great person is gone forever from our lives. She will always be remembered through her music which still lives on. My condolences to her emediate family, friends and fans. Mona.
February 18, 2009
I will never forget the heavily sprayed hair-dos of the Ronettes, or all of they great music they sang together.
It was "Be My Baby" that inspired Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys to compose "Don't Worry Baby", which the Ronettes could have recorded themselves.
All fans everywhere send their collective hearts to the family and remaining members of the group at this time of great sorrow.

Music, when soft voices die

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory—
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heaped for the beloved's bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.

I always loved the Ronettes. Although I was a toddler when they broke up, their music was always special to me. I now own every original record they released. When I was in my 20's I learned that "Be My Baby" was the song my parents danced to at their wedding! Estelle, you will be truly missed. God bless you and your family!

February 15, 2009
Such sadness came over me when I read about Estelle Bennett's passing. I was suddenly transported back to my youth as a teenage girl. How I loved the Ronettes - for their style and sweet romantic sound. Definitely one of the best and most feminine of the 60's girl groups. Thank you for putting your wonderful signature on that incredible time in rock and roll history. We won't forget you, and we thank God that your music lives on.
February 15, 2009
Rest in Peace as you take your place in eternity.

February 14, 2009
I remember your first albulm(I had to order it specially as you were just started to get known here)I saw the three of you at the "Guamont" in Ipswich England, you were great, my friends and I tried to follow your clothe style which was dynamic and surpassed any other female groups of that era. The music industry lost out when you quit.
Find peace now, god bless you
February 14, 2009
May the Angels lead you into Paradise. Thanks for your beautiful music. May the Lord's warm embrace carry and comfort you and your family. God Bless.

February 14, 2009
Good bye and God bless to Ms Estelle Bennett.Your music will live on. Our prayers and condolences to the family.
February 14, 2009
Thank you for bringing so much joy to my teen years!! I loved The Ronettes!!
February 14, 2009
To Estelle's family,

I actually remember the words and tune to this song. My 'girls' and I used to perform for our classmates imitating the female groups. I used to love the singing groups back then, what wonderful memories they brought to my life with the many events that occurred. Please accept my sincere condolences at your time of loss. It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love. One scripture reads: “Just as the Father raises the dead up and makes them alive, so the Son also makes those alive whom he wants to. Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his [Jesus’] voice and come out.” (John 5:21, 28, 29) Please take comfort in the hope of the resurrection and find peace in your prayers.
February 14, 2009
To The Family of Estelle Bennett,
I wish to extend my deepest of sympathies for the loss of Estelle.
I, like many other baby boomers, grew up listening to the songs The Ronnettes made famous. I listened to the music on my AM transitor radio and learned to line dance to Be My Baby.
Thank you so much for those memories.
Rest In Peace, Estelle Bennett. Your songs will live on for many generations to come.
February 14, 2009
Thanks for the memories.
February 14, 2009
Be My Baby was playing on the radio when the boy that got away and I were on a date and driving to the lake in his 57 Thunderbird. I think of him still when I hear it and will always thank you for one of my favorite songs.
February 14, 2009
"Rock On" Estelle. I loved your songs as a young person and still listen to Oldies on the radio. Your music will never die. RIP. God bless the family.

Ms. Bennett was part of this ageless music....I know you are proud of your mom's talents. God bless you and hold you in His arms.
February 14, 2009
"BE MY BABY" WAS SUCH A BIG RECORD IN THE EARLY 60'S. IT'S ALWAYS PLAYED ON THE OLDIES STATION, BUT IT NEVER GETS OLD. MY DEAR, YOU HAD A WONDERFUL VOICE AND FOR SOME REASON WHEN I THINK OF YOU I ALWAYS THINK OF DARLENE LOVE ALSO. WE'LL MISS YOU ESTELLE.
