On Monday, I faced the unimaginable; I can't believe I'm typing this. My mommy, Estelle took the hand of God early morning and entered into eternal rest. The last 2-years have been a hard-fought battle for her, but she tackled it head-on like she did with EVERYTHING in life. Over the past several months, cancer thought it was winning, but it actually lost. The chemo is over, the doctors, hospitals, pain, and worry are no more, cancer LOST! Her crown is bright, a shining representation of the Queen she is.

This pain is like nothing I've ever experienced; it's to the core. She was my BFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. If I was in town, every morning at 7 am was coffee time. We'd laugh, share, and yes, sometimes fuss. But we loved each other in the purest form. I take solace in walking alongside her, advocating for her health, loving on her radiance, admiring her, sharing, caring, and doing my best to be the best daughter I can be. She was my guiding light in business, my no filter truth, my supporter and fan. I don't have a friend who was not her friend, she never met a stranger; she was just that amazing! My family has lost our Matriarch, but with loss is the gain of a legacy built with memories created from love, family love, God's love.

Our fantastic network of Essential Elements customers, spanning 3-decades was a pride and joy. The relationships fostered, customers becoming friends, travel buddies, and spiritual connections. Her sense of style was iconic, the Essential Elements brand was built on her fashion savvy, she was the ULTIMATE MAVEN.

I find myself moving in silence, picking up the pieces of a shattered heart as I charter this journey. The story of how God orchestrated the last week of her life is one to be told. If you don't believe in Him, his sovereignty, holiness, and POWER, all I can say is look him up while you can; your soul will be glad you did. What the world needs now is God's love his sweet love. My mom had it, and I'm blessed that she was the chosen vessel to usher me into this world and her life. My Citizen (her social media pet name, my dad is Senior) has taken up new citizenship in the streets paved with pure gold. Rest Mom, talk to me, guide me. I'm listening.

Thank you to everyone who encouraged and prayed along the way, and now your words of comfort are equally potent and meaningful as I deal with an extreme loss and non-stop tears.

A beautiful celebration of her life is being planned, more information to come. We invite all who would like to come and share in the day with us on Saturday, December 2, 2023.
Lovingly,
Mel
