To the family of Esther Corbisello,

I wish to send my deepest sympathy. I first met Esther in the nursing home when she came to visit my motherLouise Barrett who passed away July 19,2004. I soon discovered that these two really neat ladies, Ruth and Esther came every week to visit my mother. They always came with a homemade gift of some yummy recipe. They were so up, happy and cheerful!! They gave such a wonderful gift of their time, their hearts … themselves. They made jokes and made us all laugh and a few minutes later we might be sad and tearful. My sister Pat and I only had a couple of times with these two special ladies. We learned they are my dad’s cousins! We will always treasure and honor that time we had together. I am grateful for all they gave to my mom. I feel privileged to have met her. She was a beautiful person.

Sincerely yours,

Shirley Barrett Simpson

We regret the loss of Esther and will miss seeing her at the next gathering of the proud graduates of our school. Maxine was a classmate and we remember the happy times we shared at WHS. We realize that she will be missed at her church, in the community and most of all by her beloved family.
