Esther was a lovely Christian lady. I always enjoyed visiting with her.

I am so sorry about your loss. She just recently talked with Doris Wolf about the death of my mother Vivian Jones Tibbo. She was wondering when we would be having a memorial service. I am so sad that you lost her so prematurely. God be with you all. Love and prayer,

Darlene Jones Holm
