Azaria, Kariana & family,
I'm so very sorry for your loss. I remember your grandma fondly on the occasions when we met over the years. Her love for family was very evident and I know she will be missed terribly. May she rest in peace.

Aunt Esther whenever I called you you were always so pleasant nice kind and uplifting. You never failed to ask how ALL the family is doing and you remembered most if not all by name especially my mother Lauvania. I will always keep our conversations close to my heart. Love you Aunt Esther❤️
