Today we said goodbye to this BEAUTIFUL woman. The perfect balance of class, sass, and badass. With a heart of gold, my grandmother loved like nobody I've ever known. I feel so lucky to have had her in my life. Esther Ellner was more than just my father's mother, but she was also my friend. She was a companion and an advisor who believed in me, providing ongoing encouragement...urging me to chase after my dreams.
She taught me that there's nothing wrong with getting a little lost from time to time, so long as I keep on living life to the fullest. I will forever cherish the time I had with her, and this celebration of her life is quite bittersweet. Goodbyes are never easy but the life she lived was a full one. If I can grow to be half the woman my grandmother was, I will consider my existence on this earth a successful one. She showed me what it means to NEVER QUIT, sticking it out for 94 awe-inspiring years. I love you Grandma, you magical lady, and may your kind soul rest in peace.
Miss you too, Grandpa, you handsome devil! I hope you are together again...dancing together like you used to on Saturday nights!! <3
