To Marsha, Jim, Steve, Ronnie and Donnie;

Even though your mother was my Aunt, I consider her my second Mom.  She offered guidance in my time of need and was there when I needed her.  I'm sorry that I couldn't make it as I was in AZ then.  I saw her 2 weeks before I left and we said our goodbyes.  I will miss her very much.  Remember the good times and know that she is at peace now and with your Dad.  I love you all.  Esther

Dear Family,

Mickie was a good Buddy of mine at "The Manor House".  She was my Miss Mick. I missed her and our good conversations when she moved.  Sincere condolences to all.

My heart goes out to all of you Farnsworths on the loss of your wonderful mother.   She worked so hard and selflessly for her family all her life.  The testimony of her success can be seen in the moral character of all of you.  To my brother-in-law Don, I send my special condolences and wish I could be there with you to lend support during your period of grief.
