Condolences to the Blidook family in the loss of their mother. Memories carry me back to when we were kids and the Blidook’s lived at the bottom of our hill. Many happy hours we spent playing at each other’s house. RIP Esther. I remember you as always smiling in your quiet way. You will be missed by all who knew you.
