I'm just reading your book "This Star Won't Go Out" :) I wonder if you've read it in heaven. Well I think you are very inspiring and I wish I could give you a hug..  I'll be able to. We have so much in common. Even though you're not here on Earth, you live in many hearts still. I love you Esther!!<3

Hi Esther. I know today is the day four years ago. I just bought your book and I've read The Fault in Our Stars. I'm enjoying reading about you and so glad your parents helped to make your dreams come true. My friend died almost two years ago from cancer or really complications of, weak immune system, pneumonia, lungs filling up. Basically the whole point of this post is that you're still thought of, even by people who never knew anything about you. People just hearing about you for the first time and wanting to know you despite everything. Despite the fact we'll never get the privilege of knowing you. I wish you, your family and your friends well.

Esther...You Inspire me...Through Every page i read...you continue to surprise me. You are the most amazing girl. You are so loved and missed. This world was blessed to have such a bright and strong star walk among its very soil. You have made such an impact on me and the world around you. I hope you are having fun up there in heaven. You are a wizard Esther. And you have put a spell on our hearts. We love you unconditionally, although i never knew you. I love you. You are even more powerful than Harry Potter himself. haha... God bless yo Earl family. and Esther, you(the star) will never go out<3

Esther, while reading this star won't go out, my eyes were opened about how I should be living life, focused on god, loving everyone in your life like any second could be theirs or your last, and being grateful for all god has blessed me with rather than focusing  on what I don't have. I had a friend named Vinnie in elementary school and he too acquired this vicious disease which we call cancer at age 10 and he passed away at age 12. Honestly none of it makes sense but I have faith in god that nothing happens without a reason, and a good reason because heck, god lives us more than anything, even when we don't deserve his grace, mercy, and  unending love. I also watched one of your blogs on youtube in which you said people keep saying how courageous and hard you're fighting, when in reality, you sometimes have breakdownslot and nobody listens to you, I know how that feels just not with cancer, we all have our own trials in life, mine was being an atheletes and getting a career ending sports injury. It is minute compared to what others are dealing with, but I would always breakdown and cry after practices when my coach would time me and I wouldn't come within the vicinity of a personal best, and seeing all my teammates succeed at big meets, was asiul crushing. While in the last few months I have put the injury to the back of my mind, I have been happier., but reading this book really opened my eyes about how u should be living. I should be living like Jesus does, and letting god control because his plan is best. I should have to attitude you did towards life, and I still every few months have a breakdown and talk about quitting my sport, but since I haven't been able to get rid of it after a year and a half, I think gods plan in my life involves my sport and bringing glory to him. That, as a Christian, as a human being, is our mission, our reason we are put on this earth, to bring glory to god, and love others as Jesus loves us. you, without a doubt, fulfilled God's wonderful plan for your life.

I just started reading your book and I feel as if I cannot put into words how inspirational it is. You are such and inspiration to me. You are the greatest! I love to write, too. You have inspired me to be happy always and never give up. I wished I could've had the chance to meet you... Then again, I feel like a lot of people feel like that... I wish love  alone could've saved you. I love you!❤️

I just finished reading your book, i feel inspired like i have never been before. i have an under active thyroid, and your book has inspired me in that just because there is something wrong with me that doesn't mean i can't make a difference in this world. Thank you so much  for the life that you gave to this earth and all the things you did. Goodbye, and Thank you, DFTBA.

Star,

You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knew why
A million times we needed you,
A million times we cried
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still
In our hearts you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill
It broke our heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.

You were taken way too young from this beautiful yet cruel world.

P.S cancer is a bitch!

I only recently read TFIOS and something made me wanted to get TSWGO.... and let me say ow glad I am that I did. I have found Esther's love, her courage, and her story compelling and sweet. As a survivor of Stage II thyroid cancer myself, it is brought home to me even more now. When I wear the colors for thyroid cancer awareness, I will wear them for Esther as much as myself and others who struggle with this disease. 
Shine On, Esther. I cannot wait to see you in Heaven.
