Dear Peggy, Susan and familes:  I had heard that your Mom was in the hospital in Columbus but I didn't know that it was so serious.  Esther was a special person and friend and we enjoyed going to all the township conventions together for years.  She loved her family so much and you all were so blessed to have had her a big part of your family.  I would love to come to the service but I am having health problems so I send my love and prayers to all of you.
