Myra, Sylvia, Karen,
Aunt Zesta was amazing! She was so sweet and kind to all. My mom always thought the world of her. I remember as a kid going to the mailbox to see if she had a letter from her sister. You girls have been so blessed to have such a wonderful and special mom! Our prayers and thoughts are with you!

Myra, Sylvia, and Karen,

I am so sorry for your loss. Aunt Zesta was one of a kind. She was sweet and kind to everyone. Mom has told me stories of your mom and dad dating and how my mom, being the younger sister, would always try to steal your dad's attention. My mom said she was quite a pest to your parents, but Aunt Zesta never scolded her.
Your mom and dad are together again, with Earl and David, and I can just see her sweet smile.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers

I am very sorry to hear of Ms. Zestie's passing. You are all in my prayers. I think of her often. I enjoy walking down the road to her house to see all of the flowers that still bloom in her yard.

Dear Cousins, while I am sad that Zestie has gone ahead, I am excited for her to meet all of the people who have been waiting to welcome her home. I know there was a crowd there. She will walk beside you and continue to help you every day! I loved your mother - my first cousin - and wish that I could have known her in person! My heart is with you all!
