I have to go back quite a few years to the last time I saw Esther, but I was one of the fortunate ones to be invited into their home back then. Fond memories of an active home and of course good food. We were all lucky she lived so long and She was lucky to have Lou,Patty and a wonderful family. Sorry for everyone's loss, it was a big one. Condolences to the Freedman's A Margate family legend.

Lou I am sorry for your loss. I have great memories working with Esther. She made my one year run in the baccarat pit a pleasure. Her accuracy and humor carried me through many days. I always got along great with Esther.May she Rest In Peace.
