    Words cannot even begin to express the sorrow we have for the loss of our beloved Queen Esther. She touched the hearts many and unconditionally embraced me as her daughter. I will forever remember my mother of Zion and hold her words of encouragement and counsel of love close to my heart. I know for certain she is riding a cloud high in the sky and watching over us all. Rest in peace mother Sanders, we miss you..The Williams Family

    To Apostle Sanders and the entire Sanders family… The saying comes to mind, "es;Blessed are the saints who die in the Lord, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them.."es; Mother Sanders, a great woman in her own right, will be missed by all, her loyalty to you as a Godly wife, her loyalty to her children as a Mother, and her loyalty to the Body of Christ as a worker in the Master's Vineyard. My family and I extend our prayers and support to you all, I know the Lord will lift you all up in this very difficult time, may He continue to do so, sincerely, Bishop Edward E. and Lady Rose M. Shouse and family.
