Condolences for the family of “Claire Greenway Hester”

Condolence from Glenda Currin on December 28th, 2009 12:00 am

Durwood, Maurice and families. Your mom was a good and Godly lady. I remember going with my grandparents Rose Edna &Norfleet to visit “Sis Carrie”. It was always a treat for me as a little girl over 50 years ago. They always made me feel so welcomed and I loved it when your mom was brushing Sis Carrie’s long hair. I had never seen hair so long!In later years I recall the good care your mom took of your dad and the many kindnesses she bestowed to others. She was a Christ light bearer for many decades and her kind and giving spirit will be long remembered in the community. May God comfort you today and in the days ahead.

I am sorry that such a great lady is no longer with us. A book could be written about all of the good things she has done for her family, church and community. She and her late husband were close friends of my late husband’s parents, Elbert and Nina Brooks. Charles and I visited the Hester’s every chance we had when we were in Oxford, and when we attended Enon Baptist Church. I remember my mother-in-law saying that Claire Hester was like a sister to her. I send my sincerest wish of sympathy to the Hester family.
