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.
Liz, Brazil.

Dear Earl Family,
I am currently reading Esther's diary in my literature class. Her words created emotion, made me laugh and cry. Esther might have felt that she couldn't do much due to her cancer, but her story moved me in a groundbreaking way. Esther was a true star and an angel sent by God. She inspires we to love life everyday; she makes me wan to help others and accept them for who they are. Her unconditional love has inspired me to lead a lofe of love. Esther is a star who's light will definitely never go out.

Dear Earl Family,

I am currently reading in my class “This Star Won’t Go Out!” Esther was a beautiful, strong, smart, and happy young woman. She never gave up on herself and always looked at life the positive way. She appreciated everything she had in her life. Esther was thankful for all the help she received and she influenced and changed the lives of many. She will always be my inspiration and someone that motivates me to live life to the fullest. God bless!

Dear Earl Family,

Esther is someone that has changed my life. I am currently reading her book and I am amazed at how much love there was in one girl. Esther is an inspiration not only to people with cancer but to everyone in the world. Esther LOVED and did nothing but, and love is something we need right now. She has shown me that the sun WILL always come out tomorrow. Everyone has one person that impacts their life and changes its for the better, I believe Esther has done that for me. She has shown me that love and confidence conquer all. Esther was truly a special girlsomeone I would have been honored to meet or ever be friends with. Esther has helped me to see the world in a different way. She has shown me that treating everyone with love and finding the good side to people puts me on track to live like she did, with love. Esther has taught me a lesson, a very important one I should say, and she will remainin my heart forever.

God Bless

You're daughter, Esther, has truly inspired me. I am reading her diary in my literature class and all of the students are encouraged and moved by her kind words and by her love for others. She is truly a beautiful angel. Esther andyour family are always included in my daily prayers. Thank you for Esther. Shewill always be an inspiration. God bless!

Esther-
You are amazing. Present tense. I never got to meet you, but I know already how great of a person you are. Like many others, the Vlogbrothers led me to you. (I celebrated Esther Day last summer for the first time and it felt good. You have great ideas.) At first, I didn't know too much about you, but then I found out your beautiful words were published and I thought "Oh! I need to read that!" but like the forgetful teen I am, it slipped my mind (oops). But, as I was doing homework in my school's library, I just happened to look up and spot a bright lime green book spine among other dark colored ones. I was interested, so I went and read the title and found out that it was in fact your book (congrats on becoming an author!) and I got all excited inside because I remembered that I'd been meaning to read it but never got around to it until then. So of course I checked it out and started reading it. I read and I read and I read and I read and a couple days later, I had read all the words on the 430-ish page book on yours. I felt refreshed. Renewed. You are such an inspiration and I am amazed at how you were able to change the world and so many people in your time here on Earth. I imagine you looking down from heaven, enjoying the same things we do and listening to the new music that's coming out and just loving everything good. I'm rambling. Whoops. Anyway, you are great and loved and missed and inspiring and hilarious and I am just so pumped that you were able to get your words published. Here I am celebrating Esther Day four months and two days early: I love you, Esther. I will always turn to your uplifting words and story and videos and personality in times of need. May peace be with you. <3

Hi Esther! I'm watching Brotherhood 2.0 / vlogbrothers from the beginning. I've heard of you before and celebrated Esther Day this past summer, but I just discovered this guest book. I just want you to know that your legacy of love and positivity has endured thus far and will continue to endure as long as nerdfighteria continues to flourish (which I think we can mutually hope will be a very very very long time). My thoughts, love, and prayers go to you and all of those whom you love. I hope you're resting peacefully. DFTBA.

Hello Esther, I was just watching one of John Green's old videos and I have heard of you multiple times and have been empowered by your story, and it sent me here. I am not exactly sure what to say I just want you to know that you are so incredibly loved. I wish you got more days than you got but in the time you were here you were a star in so many peoples lives. I also want you to know you aren't known as the girl with cancer, you are known as the girl who loves Harry Potter and was kind and funny and was so strong with or without the cancer. I am not sure what is provoking me to get so emotional over this just I would like to let you know you left a mark in my life.
