in honor of Esther H

Esther H

Esther, the first-born child of Rhonda and Jason, was born on April 12, 2012, and passed away on May 2, 2012. She succumbed to a congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Her father will never forget “her curious, roving eyes,” and the signs of an active, engaging personality. “Esther had what Rhonda and I called ‘dancing hands,’ he tells us. “It was a cross between Tai Chi, conducting an orchestra, and praising Jesus! She had such active hands that we often had to swaddle her or gently hold her hands down to allow her to rest.”

Esther’s family hope to start a foundation in her memory, to help other families in crisis in Whatcom County, other CDH families, and other Soulumination families.  Esther Holtrop Foundation
