My Titi Esther was an amazing woman who led an exemplary life. She had a strong presence and had this inner strength that would rise up above and beyond anything life would bring to her. She was full of wisdom and class. She loved and cared so much about her family and friends. I feel so blessed she was a huge part of my life and my children, who adore her, were able to share the same blessing Family was important to her and she made it her business to make sure traditions were passed on and would work so hard to make sure everything was perfect for her loved ones and friends to come together and enjoy. This brought her so much joy. She only knew and taught to do things one way and that was “the right way”. She was honest and correct. She was always truthful and sincere. She was an unique precious gem who has left a legacy of love. The loving memories and lessons are greater than words can express.

Titi Esther was like another grandmother to me. She taught me many lessons that I still carry with me from my childhood. She had a presence you could not help but feel no matter what room she was in and will forever have a presence in the lives of all who remember her. I am grateful to have known her and to call her my blood.
