Dear Esther,
May she Rest In Peace. 💕🙏
She was an awesome pie baker, & was still baking pie on occasion, when she was a resident at Hope Springs.
When my sister Gloria & I would provide music at Hope Springs, she & our dad, (Simon) would sing along. 😊
She was never married, but felt loved & cared for by her nephew.
Saying prayers for her family.
