Each time I think of Aunt Esther I think of her warm smile and her gregarious laugh . Especially when she got together with her brothers. Between her brothers and her husband it was like a comedy show. All of them enjoyed life to the fullest I found this picture when I was at my moms house a couple of years ago. You can definitely tell that’s aunt Esther as a child. That smile is infectious. I love you Aunt Esther.
