Dear Bustamante and Santos Families, I just heard the sad news today. I was still praying for her; although, I had not been on Facebook for a while. Esmer was a wonderful person as everyone who knew her knows. She was such a happy and bright presence yet tough when she needed to be tough. She will always be remembered as a great coworker to me back when she and I were both working at Killam Oil Company. Heaven gained an angel. We lost a friend. May the Lord comfort all of you as her family and friends. She will be missed. Sincerely, Suzie McManus
