|Let the memory of Esther be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved Mother/Nana, Esther Beardsley who was born on March 6, 1921 and passed away on March 17, 2011. We will remember our "Mama", "Nana", "Baby Bird", "Birdie", "Mamacita", Hungarian Gypsie & "Buttercup" forever.
"Hey "My Buttercup" well it's another Mother's Day and I hope that you know that I am always thinking about you. I miss you so much. We always had fun going out or talking. I love all the restaurants we go to because you have been in there with us and it brings back good memories. I love you "My Buttercup" & My Smooches too."
Just some heartfelt words for you on yet another Mother's day. Life keeps passing with time and for many of us, dear ones have been taken to their final rest however; they left behind memories of their love that keeps their legacy alive. You are sorely missed by all of us, but rest assured that we keep you alive in our hearts. There is not many days when your name does not cross our lips and bring a tear to our eyes or a smile and warm feeling to our hearts!
Love you and miss you!"
Cindy and i went to Ihop to share memories but i could not bring myself to ordering liver and onions! ha ha

"Esther~ My Mom spoke of you often. She had nothing but kind words to say about you and your children. You probably remember me more than I remember you, because I was so young. I do remember one day when you watched me, I was about 3, when Mom went to work. I know I cried and you comforted me. My Mom passed away Feb 26 2013. I have a feeling you are both reconnecting in Heaven. God Bless!"
