My deepest condolences to Sandra, Susie, Carlos and all the family. I grew up together with Esther, la Chita as she was lovingly nicknamed, on Houston Street. I hold many beautiful and lasting memories of our friendship and I will truly miss her! Your mother was an exceptional lady and I don’t know of anyone who equals her passion for decorating her home with themes of every season! I pray that she rests in peace and that she will now enjoy her reward in heaven! May you find comfort in the many beautiful memories she lives for you to cherish and to live by. She will, no doubt, be decorating heaven as she did on earth! Bendiciones and prayers for all of you and for my loving friend, Chita! May she be granted Rest In Peace and may perpetual light shine upon her forever!

My condolences to the De Los Santos family. It hurts to see a fine person leave us, but I am sure God is happy to have her home. Always enjoyed visiting with her when we see each other at Cataleya’s parties. We had something great in command. Our great granddaughter Cataleya. I will miss not seeing you. But I know you are happy to see your honey again. Rest In Peace Esther.
