Esther Ting

I didn't know Esther Ting. I don't usually read the obits, but this one caught my eye, and by the time I was done reading it, I was tearing up. Here is the obit:

A friend's posts on Esther:

According to the above link (posted by Esther's friend on April 17, 2009), Esther died from a drug-related heart attack:

Now many of you are all wondering, how did Esther pass? What happened? Where, when, who..and so on...Wednesday April 8th, Esther overdosed on drugs which led to a heart attack. From what I heard from the nurse, she told me that they were able to resuscitate her, but her heart failed again and that’s when she passed.

Why would the world take a woman a few weeks before her 19th birthday? This makes no sense. It just makes no sense. May God help her family and those who were fortunate enough to know her.

I found this accidentally. I was a friend of Esther, and I just wanted to say thank you for your kind words. Even after months after her death I still think about her.

thanks for posting this. you are right, we ask ourselves the very same questions.

but as a person, we should also look into her life. one thing i learned from her is how all the small things in life can make a big impact in us.

i always feel that there is a story involved when reading about people's obituaries. try finding more about her.
