Perhaps it is just a fact of life, that we are not remembered until we are gone, that we do not live on until we die, that we are loved by all when we can no longer love. And perhaps it is worse that millions learn of your death and none learn of your life, but that is not what matters. What matters is that someone who was alive is no longer alive, that someone who loved and was loved is no longer here to love, that a battle was fought and the battle was lost. May your battle and the battles of so many others live on though they could not. If the family of Esther still reads this, stay strong, if the friends of Esther still read this, never forget her. And for those of us who didn't know her until we couldn't have her know us, remember to stay with her family.

I haven't read this star won't go out, but I'm planning to. When I do, I'm sure I'll cry(as I've seen from many other people who have signed the guestbook). It'll be a great book for sure. You won't be forgotten through all of the nerdfighters that watch the vlogbrothers. We'll keep you in our hearts. You never forgot to be awesome!

I am reading Esther's book:this star won't go out, and it is amazing and inspiring and made me cry...a lot. Esther was just plain awesome and I wish I had become friends with her either online, or in person. I am very sad that she passed,and I hope she is doing well in heaven.(I mean, who wouldn't be well in heaven?) rest in awesome my dear Esther.

I am currently reading, This Star Won't Go Out and I feel so privileged to be able to read Esther's journal. She was so lucky to have a loving and caring family throughout her life. Esther's words make me feel connected to the universe, and though things don't always go the way you expected, there is always something to be happy about. Thank you for sharing Esther's journal with the world.

As I was walking though my high school library. I was looking for a good book when I saw This Star Won't Go Out. I find it very inspiring to hear from your beautiful and talented daughter. Esther made me realize that life is very precious. As I read the book and watch her YouTube videos it makes me so sad that she is no longer here. I want to be an oncology nurse when I finish high school. I always wanted to be one but couldn't make up my mind until I read the book. Now I can thank you Esther you have inspired many people.

Dear Earl Family,
Thank you for sharing Esther's story. I am currently reading her book This Star Won't Go Out. She has inspired me. I was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor at age 10. Know that your daughter/sister/friend was a wonderful person! And very brave! I would've loved to meet her! She had a good fight and she didn't try to deny her situation. My condolences.

Dear Earl family,
I am in tears as I stare at this webpage unsure what to write that  could ever express what I feel towards the family and to Esther. What an inspirational girl. There are feelings like the deep dark mass of sadness of all the universe deep within me that I regretfully have to say rest in peace. But within that vast neverending universe of dark sadness there are stars that sparkle and shine in here memory, and her legacy lives on with us (Nerdfightaria) and we are all constantly evolving with love and appreciation for every human being that keeps her stars shining inside them because she will never go out. We will always have a universe of darkness, but what's important is that the stars are there, masses of burning brightness that carries her energy for eternity.

Hello parents of Esther.
I do not quite know what to say ... I was looking for the Internet for more things about her life (beyond what is in the book - which by the way I won birthday).
Esther was a beautiful girl, and I know she is proud enough of everything you have done for her.
Thanks sharing a little piece of her daughter with us.
