Aunt Esther will always have a special place in my heart. All of the Kay sisters were special. Kind, giving, loving, and understanding. Fond memories of walking from my house on Woodlawn to the Benson house (also on Woodlawn) to visit. The last of the Kay brothers and sisters to be united in heaven. It will be a great reunion.

My Dear Esther Bunny!! As you know, I have always loved being your Step-son. You always treated me like your own son. You were my Step-mom nearly twice as long as my birth mother. And I was so proud of you. You are the only Grandmother my children, Christine, Erin, Stacy and Sean, ever knew on our side of the family. And you were the only Great-grandmoth er that Corey, Quintin, Austin, Madison and Paul ever knew. It was so much fun attending all of my Dad's birthday parties, weddings, and you always made my Dad smile. You made all of the Edmondsons feel so loved. It is surprising none of us were mentioned here. We always thought you hung the moon for us. But I know that you felt all of our love. As your life continues on your next journey, we are all happy that you are happy and at peace. Please give my love to Christine and my Dad. We all love you so much!

My deepest sympathies on your loss. Your mom was the sweetest little lady I'd ever met. I'll forever cherish the memories of living as her neighbor, growing taller than her (when I was 7!) and enjoying her bringing home Tippy! Her greatest gift was her 4 children, one I'm blessed to have in my family. Rest in peace with love.

Our sincere condolences. What a lovely soul who will be dearly missed by her friends and family. May God's presence and peace welcome her and surround your family at this time of grief. - the.Larsons
