Esther Dennis lost her long battle to cancer Oct 17, 2012. With no immediate family in the U.S, friends are raising money for her burial.

The late Mrs Esther Dennis, playful, fun and loving, came to the United States like many of us in pursuit of a fair chance to a meaningful life, and to secure a future for her children and family members in Liberia. She chose to be humble, serving everyone who she met and devoting a great deal of her life supporting the Liberian community in the state of Connecticut where she lived.

Esther struggled with cancer for a very long time. Her resolve to win was unimaginable. She prayed every moment of her life and challenged the doctor's claim of counted days to live. But on October 17, 2012, she will lost her long battle to cancer at the Yale New Haven Hospital, in Connecticut USA.

Through it all, she will rely only on a circle of true and faithful friends. She will walk a painful and final journey under a dark cloud, completely separated from the people with whom she shared one destiny; her children, her parents, her sisters and brothers, all watching helplessly from million miles away in Liberia, West Africa.

With no immediate family members in the United states, and a condition that deprived her from work and insurance, the test will come down to those who will hear her story, and those who she met and transformed with her nature of service and her life full of humility. Ms. Jarsia Kollie, a young and brilliant Liberian lady who experienced Esther's energy, wrote: "Although no words can really help to express the grief that myself and my entire family feel for the passing of Ma Esther, I cannot begin to imagine the depth of pain her family is experiencing. I have personally known her since I was in elementary school and she used to help around our household." This is one of many testimonies that defines the actual life Esther Dennis lived. Always helping, persevering and hopeful through difficult times.

Today, the least we can do for Esther Dennis, while she lie quietly away from her family is to stand by her side and give her a honorable home going.

Please join the faithful friends to raise this money for the late Esther Dennis' funeral. The amount will cover all associated cost for the entire funeral.

May the Lord showers his blessings over us all as we embark on this journey to laid Esther Dennis to her final resting place.

Henry Seyue and Trephena Scott, on behalf of the family.
