From our first day in our new home, May 18, 1974, our neighbors Odie and Hester were right there at the fence. They warched our boys grow up and we all enjoyed the time with them. Rest now Hester. You are back with Odie again.

So sorry to hear of Hesters passing. She was such a kind and considerate lady. I knew her while going to the Country Club Health Spa and was always made to feel like she had such a great life and I felt she was a blessing to see and talk to when I was there. My Husband had put in the sewer at her and Odie's house a long time ago. Prayers for Strength, Comfort and Peace at this time. She will be missed by all and anyone who knew her.
