Although you are gone, Aunt Esmie,w we wi remember the days of
happiness. Go on to the land of peace you deserve. We wil always remember

Agnes, Blaze, Karen, Karem,

Auntie Esmie:
You are gone but will always be remembered. You were always a hasty
person and always willing to do something. If anyone would do anything too
slowly for you, you would call them eighty-ight, meaning slow.
This I would always remember you by and your sweet fun ways. You made
me laugh at times the way you would say things. I wish you were still here with
us. But God calls you to rest and He knows best, so rest on my aunt May God
bless you and keep you until that glorious day.
Joshet and Dale
Auntie Esmie:
You are gone but not forgotten. Your smile and kindness will forever be
with me and my family.
Rest in Peace

To Ms. Jakie:
Your departure has saddened me dearly, but I know you are gone to a
better home and one day I will see you again. May you rest in peace.
Jane John
Aunt Esmie:
Whenever I saw you in the hospital I would shake my head and say a soft
prayer. You have suffered but our God knows everything. You left us in a calm
and quiet way. The remembrance of you will still remain with us, even though
we can't accept your quiet slipping away.
May God bless you until we meet again.
Rest in peace, Esmie.
Your Sister Myrtle
and Niece Agnes Donovan and Famly
Auntie Esmie:
Words aren't enough to express what you meant to me. You will always be
in my memories. May you rest in peace.
Love, Maritza

every way. I need only mention a problem and you were there to help me solve
May God be with you, until we meet again.

You were always there like a mother, a big sister to me. I will never forget
your kind, thoughtful ways. I will miss you, but I am comforted to know that you
are now free from pain and have gone to a place where there is no more sorrow
or crying.
You will always be remembered by many of us May you rest in peace.
