To Dan, Dave and others related to Esther Rozar,

Your Mom will be missed at meetings and meals that she attended with one or more of you.

While 2-24 was my birthday, most of the day I was in Columbus, OH in regards to social advocacy.  I got the newspaper with the obit. in it just before going to visit my dtr. who lives in Old Brooklyn.  It was 7:50 p.m., so it would not have been possible for me to attend the service.  I had heard of her loss by Rick Huff.  Your family will continue to be in my prayers.

Our sympathy to the Rozar family, praying for your comfort in this time of loss. Aunt Esther always made us feel like we were part of her family. When she asked what we had been up to she really was interested and not just asking out of obligation. You always felt like she really cared about you.

Dearest long time family friends. Esther was an amazingly independently soul with a beautiful spirit. How proud you all must be that she was such a survivor. Our family and many others were blessed knowing her and the many shared fond memories. May the God i trust with our eternity and the promise of peace provide you comfort and reflections of the good times. Love Deborah
