  6. My deepest condolences to the friends and family of Estela. I first met Estela through my aunt, Frances Imai in El Paso, Texas when i was a teen. I then became reacquainted with her in my adulthood after my mother became a Jehovah’s Witness and she and Estela and my aunt Frances came to Albuquerque to attend an assembly approximately 12-13 years ago. I live in Albuquerque so I was fortunate enough to be able to host these spirited and jubilant women. It was then that Estela made a great impression on me; I remember her warm and friendly smile, her soft yet confident voice, her beautiful personality, and her sense of humor that was telling of an unassuming intelligence. Needless to say, we laughed a lot on their trip to NM. The four of us ate dinner at a restaurant called, The Range. I will never forget their visit to Albuquerque and Estela’s jokes. We laughed so hard that our stomachs ached. She was a special woman. Above all else, she was talented. I was fortunate enough to see some of her art work as well. She loved horses, she loved Jehovah, and she was loved by many. God bless her beautiful spirit.

  7. My deepest condolences to Mrs. Estela Aguirre’s family.
    I never met her but I must know that she was a great woman as she raised a great son and Man in my friend David.
