      Esther Lavenia Houston Beeman 9/9/1935 to 6/20/2013

      Esther's life touched so many. She was a passionate, loving, strong and beautiful woman. She taught us so much about life, giving, compassion, empathy and love. We feel at peace knowing she is with her Lord and that she has many family, friends and Mary Kay looking after her. Mom dedicated her life to helping others feel good about themselves and spread their wings.

      She practiced the "Go-Give Spirit" in every aspect of her life. On an interesting note, Esther and her mother passed on the same day 6/20/2013, Eunice Houston 6/20/1994.

      Esther's wish was that in lieu of flowers, any donations please be sent to Big Bend Hospice, 1723 Mahan Center Blvd., Tallahassee, FL 32308-5428. (800) 772-5862. Per her wishes we are having an online Memorial and we will post it once it has been setup. Thank you all for your prayers, love and support.

      John 14:1-4 "Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going."

      With love,
      Frank, Michael, Paul, Lonnie, Kimberly and Tonya Beeman
