1/19/2015 - Dear Esther, We are sad to see you leave us all behind, but we know that the conditions of staying here were stark and often painful. We know your children and grandchildren and the community, did all they knew to make it easier for you to stay in your own home. But at the end of the day, the sound of the oxygen concentrator, the creaks and groans of your house, and all our worldly treasures and trash were not great company, just more stuff. We thank you for all the LOVE you gave us over the years through your thoughts, laughter, games, and beautiful creations of JOY. Your fire within was always actively available to warm the many family and friends at the hearth of SOUL. Thank You for BEing with us and sharing your abundant wealth that can only come from ONE place, GOD. I wonder if you are tending the Gardens found plentiful in our midst, though the world-sense veil blinds us of it’s beauty and your beautiful presence. We know that right now you are as happy as every soul has a right to BE. FREEDOM to BE happy, JOY at every sound in heaven, PEACE that all is right as it should be, LIFE IS worth living, and the absolute, incredible LOVE that innervates everything seen and unseen making us in It’s own image and likeness. Mom looks forward to seeing and BEing with all of you and rejoice in all the wonders with you and all your loved ones that have preceded you. She isn’t afraid, just disgusted with “this world” and it’s beliefs that we grow old, get sick and then die. But, as she says, dying is easy, putting up with every day limitations and disabilities is hard and not for sissy’s. But, LIFE is eternal and LOVE makes it complete and worthwhile, shining the LIGHT of Being across the universe - think of all those lights! No wonder some ancients believed the stars were souls in our night sky. We miss your presence as we have known you, but will not keep you here where limitations abound, instead, we will know you are present in the Glory of God, His/Her Son that came to enlighten us to all possibilities and how to engage them - and all that GOD made was/IS good! Blessings to your family and friends. - Gladys Martin

1/16/2015 - Little did I know that when I met you in 1990 that we would be come partners and friends with Avon's help. I enjoyed our chats about the state of the nation and earth and how to fix said problems. I will really miss you Esther. You were a good friend and last but not least a fellow Avon customer/representative. - Dorothy Hoffman

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
