    To Mrs. Esty and family; My condolences on the loss of Mr. Esty. I have such fond memories of his class and the patience he had for his students, especially at that grade level. He signed my yearbook “Teachers pet – twice” since I also enjoyed Mrs. Esty for third grade. I am sure he touched many other students and will be greatly missed.

    Judy and Mike; I am very sorry for your loss. I did not know you and Jerry well but I did get to meet you when I visited with Andrea a few years ago. We stayed overnight in your beautiful home and I enjoyed your hospitality. Take care of each other and keep busy. Sincerely, Kelly Reid (Andrea’s cousin)
