Lottie, I'm so saddened to hear about Eston. I don't recall ever seeing a jollier man in my life. He was always quick with a laugh and a smile. I know you will miss him terribly but also know he had been suffering. May God bless and keep you through this difficult time and may your memories of him help you in the coming days. Much love!
