  1. Ruth,

    She was a true jewel.

  2. Estelle was my ‘ Momma’ that’s what I called her and she called me her daughter. She had the kindest heart and I will miss her so much but will always carry her memory with me. And someday we will be reunited in heaven. I know in my heart that is where she is.

  3. Aunt Estelle was such a special lady. When I became pregnant with Savannah, she was so happy for me. Aunt Estelle never had children of her own, but she was a mother to all who came in contact with her. She will be greatly missed!

  4. Years and distance never change the heart. This family is my heart. When we lose one, I feel like a piece of my heart goes with them. Thank you Aunt ‘Buttons’ from that little twelve year old, now a grateful adult. Our love and sympathy to the rest of the family and anyone who was lucky enough to know Estelle. Your loving niece, Michelle
