Not sure what to say?

My friend Esther ! A very special person, a good-natured role model, and a delightful companion. I think of you every time I take up my knitting needles. You started out as my Home Instead Senior Care client and ended up as my friend. :-)

My first educator to expect hard work from me, which became a valued life skill. 30+ years later from 3rd grade, I remember her fondly, and mourn your loss.

What a joyful lady Esther was, always a smile on her face and a kind word. taught my daughter well in school, who is a teacher herself today. Esther was an inspiration to many and will be remembered always. My prayers are with all of the family. -St James Parishoner

Garthanne, Eric and your families,

Please forgive me. I did not see the notice in the paper.

Your Mom and Dad were like parents to me. I loved both of them very much. Did you know that Garth did the readings at my 1st wedding?
The were one of the most interesting couples I've ever known. They had so much fun together and all the wonderful trips!!!!!
I know how much they loved you kids and their grandchildren. You were very lucky to have them as parents.

Esther was a dear neighbor and friend. She always had a positive attitude and was very warm and gracious. I will miss our lunches together and all the time spent with her at her home.

Esther and Garth were such a gift in our life. Esther was such a blessing in the life of my children and so much fun sharing corn beef and cabbage at the shop on St Pat's Day. What a blessing they were in our lives

We hadn't known Esther very long. Just since a week after she moved to Rolling Hills. In that short time, we felt a close friendship with her. Such an interesting lady and she could remember so much about all the places she and her husband had visited over the years. We valued the time we had to know her. Clair & Barb Soseman

Another third grade alum of Mrs. Peterson. She was the first teacher that gave me confidence in school. She had a nice word for EVERY single student and made learning so much fun. I was so blessed to have been her pupil. Can still hear her laugh and feel her hugs. She will be missed.

Mrs. Peterson was the only teacher I ever went back and visited. She totally changed my life. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a tremendous lady with a passion for kids like me who were socially awkward and shy. She could sure read third graders better than anyone! I will miss her tremendously. And I am truly keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers
