Dear Esther, How tragic was her untimely death. I'll always remember with gratitude how she read the program notes at my senior piano recital and calmed my anxieties during the moments before my recital began that Sunday afternoon in March 1960. And also, I'll always recall how shocked she was that her good friend Nancy Bibb had dared to marry an Arab! But a few years later, she did meet my Arab husband and liked him, even surprised that he had the same color eyes, green, as she. Nancy Hoye Mufti

It's nice to hear from you. I am the youngest of my mother's four sons and was six months old when my mother passed.  Though she never had a chance to meet them, she has 20 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. We all live on the East Coast now.

She  did indeed have a sister Jeanne who has lived in Seattle with her family for many years.  Her married name is Maimon.


All the best.

.I remember Esther from Washington School days.  A very pretty young Jewish girl and I was fascinated that her father was a Rabbi.  Many years later I was privileged to go to Israel and visit the Western Wall.  Since that time I have met and befriended many Jewish men and women.  I pray for Israel and her peace.  I do not know the details of her untimely death, but I am sure her family misses her everyday.

I always considered Esther one of my best friends in high school, we used to joke with each other a lot. Esther and I walked down the aisle together for graduation. I was very sad to hear of her passing, especially since I did not know for a long time after the sad occasion, and couldn't express my sympathies at the appropriate time.
