Gary, Nancy & family,

Your father was joy to be around and was such a great friend to our Mom, we are so pleased we got the opportunity to meet him in the past several years.
His 'smile' will always be the light what we remember most and how he always shared that smile with so many.
God Bless!!!

John, Nancy, Rebecca & Don & rest of family we send our heart-felt sympathy for each of you. Uncle Estle was a wonderful person and will be missed by us. Each of you were so fortunate to have had him in your life. He & Aunt Mary always did something with us when we were visiting Angola. Neither of them will ever know just how much we appreciated that kindness. Much love to all of you.
