My sincere condolences to Esther's family. I worked with Esther as a Security Officer at the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Community Center back in 1993-1995. Esther always had a story to tell and made me laugh. When I moved over to the Tribal Police I would swing by the CC and sit and talk with her. Esther always had the scope of who was doing what. RIP Esther.
