Esther will be sorely missed, such a lovely lady with a perpetual smile.
Our families have a long history. Lucille and Esther went to elementary school together. Earle drove Lucille and Bud to the hospital when Lynda was born - he and Esther were still courting at the time. Leah worked with Esther one summer as a student.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Lucille and the Stewart family

My sincere condolences to the King family. I will always remember all the great meals that your Mom prepared when we were haying back in the 60's, especially the desserts. We always looked forward to meal-time. On occasion Earle and/or dad would give us a cellar-temperature Carling Black Label or a Labatts "50" before supper too. I think we were maybe 14 or 15 at that time. Esther was a wonderful lady and I know she will be missed.
