My parents have been in The Willows since June. I enjoyed talking to Ester as she visited the halls in her wheelchair. What a joy she was to visit with. I will miss her sweet face. Sorry for your loss.

Sending my deepest sympathy to all the Albright family at this sad time. Esther was such a wonderful person. Always had a beautiful smile on her face and no matter who came into her home, she was always ready to sit down and visit with you. And of course, she’d always ask if you’d like something to eat or drink.
Of course this was many years ago, when my family still lived in Willard, but I know that she never changed and loved each one of her family with all her heart. May all who knew and loved her, always remember those great memories and the times you shared together. She will be missed.
