  1. I used to do Esther’s hair at Piedmont. I always looked forward to our visits! Her sister would drop her off and pick her up. She always talked about her son and grandkids. She had a great sense of humor and I missed her when she stopped coming in.
    So sorry for her family’s loss.

  2. Hi Brian,

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Know that you and yours have been in my thoughts and prayers since your mom passed, and her obituary was published in Sunday’s newspaper. I can see your face in hers, I know she will be missed.

    I think of you often, stay well my friend!

    Pam (Merkle) Will

  3. Brian,
    I’m so sorry to see the news of your mother’s passing. I don’t get the paper anymore so didn’t hear of it until today (21st).
    Ditto what Pam said, you look just like her.
    My sincere sympathies to you.
    Sending you a (virtual) hug, my friend.
