I know it's been almost a decade since his passing but still wanted to give my condolences. I've been a nurse for 13 years next month and have taken care of thousands of patients, but Mr. Esser was the very first patient I ever took care of as a nursing student back in March/April 2010 at Wittenberg and I never forgot him. I remember talking and watching television with him in his room when things were slow. He was always very nice. I hope his family is doing well.

My prayers go out to you and your family in your time of bereavement. I hope you can find comfort in this bible verse at Revelations 21:4 where it says, "and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have past away."

We will never forget how welcome John and his folks made us feel when we moved to Crown Point over fifty years ago! Just visiting in their furniture store was such a pleasure. They are part of our many happy memories from the good ole days! God bless them and all their family left with all the memories!

My love and blessings to you Barb my dear long time friend and to the loss of your brother. You were a wonderful sister to John. Sympathy to his other sisters and to John's family. He was always a great help to so many at the furniture store and enjoyed his help in helping me spend my money in the store. He sold us our first refrigerator....Thanks John

Barb, I am sorry to hear about your brother's passing. I thought about you several times in the last week, and I was able to remember John's name, but not your sisters' names. That kind of thing happens to me a lot. I will keep all of you in my prayers. Jill

My sincerest sympathies to the Esser family. Johnny was one of the nicest, kindest men I ever met. My father, Fred, lived at the Lutheran Home for a while about 10 years ago. He had Alzhiemers but he remembered Johnny. Johnny befriended him, kept him involved in dominos and dice games and generally treated him with the utmost respect every day. I will forever be grateful for the sunshine he added to my Dad's life. I went to see Johnny every time I came back to Crown Point. The last time I saw him was in October of 2012. I am so very glad he can now enjoy his reward in a place without the cruel limitations he had during his last years. God bless you Johnny....thank you and I love you.
