Wayne, Lori, Abraham, Abby, Angie, Graham, someone.  I need to know someone is reading this.  My name is Ashley and I'm 12.  I didn't know Esther.  But here's what I have to say: Esther was and still remains my idol.  Her story, her cancer, her fight is awful but amazing at the same time.  The cancer was awful.  Her fight was amazing.  After reading The Fault In Our Stars, I, naturally, became obsessed.  So, I looked at the dedication.  And it was to Esther.  I did some research, and that's when Esther became my idol.  Now, I know whoever is reading this is thinking, "So you're comparing our Star to Hazel, aren't you?"  No.  I would never.  Esther's story is an extremely unique one.  Horrible, but unique.  Esther fought so hard and I admire her for it.  I recently started watching her YouTube videos, and...she just looks so happy in all of them.  That must be very hard when you're suffering.  Before you accuse me, ESTHER IS NOT PERFECT.  I had to say that because it's what she would find to be the truth.  If I feel like I'm suffering from her death, I remember her family, her friends (Lindsay, Arka, etc...) and her cats.  I really don't know why I decided to write this, honestly, but I'm glad I did.  Thank you for reading.

I know this is probably going to disappear into a sea of comments, but...

I just read 'This Star Won't Go Out'. I though it was really sweet and a mark of a life well lived. Also, I really liked the constant use of various creative emoticons. V. funny!

RIP Esther, and RIP all others who have gone.

Esther, thank you thank you so much for being such a special, kindness and lovely person. I also want to thank to Lori and Wayne for sharing her words with us. That book has inspire me so many good things. I would've loved to meet her personally. But all potterheads are family, so I consider her like she was my little sister even if I hadn't the pleassure to meet her. God bless her <3

Hey Esther ! I'm reading your amazing book !!! Its so beautiful. I lost my sister from brain cancer in 2004 , she was only 4 , so I can't really say I can't imagine what it feels like to lose someone from cancer because I know what it feels like. One day cancer will be defeated , we will find a cure for cancer. I pray tonight for all the children that lose theirs lives to this terrible disease, I also pray for the families and the children who still fight to this minute to stay alive. You left a mark Esther .

Esther, you are amazing. You continue to inspire so many nerdfighters to this day, and I think that speaks to your truly incredible legacy. Your care for those around you and your focus on the love of friends and family is truly beautiful. I watch your YouTube videos all the time and I am about to start reading your book! I even had the privilege of meeting your mom and little brother this summer at LeakyCon, which was a truly inspiring experience. LeakyCon attendees will NEVER forget you, and we know that you are always there in spirit. Although I will never meet you, I feel like I have because of how much you care for and have given to the nerdfighter community and to the world. DFTBA, Esther. Rest in awesome. Your star will never go out.

I received your book for my birthday, and devoured it in 4 hours. You are such an inspiration to me, and i hope you are doing well hanging with God. Truly rest in awesome Star, the world continues to miss you, even though i didn't know you existed when you were sick, i was brought to tears at your story. Best wishes to your family, (yes, that is a vlogbrothers joke) they are extremely strong people who didn't deserve to lose you. DFTBA

Your story inspires me to be be a better person everyday, not despite but with your flaws and your totally humaness. (I don't think that's a word...) but you show that some so down to earth can be sick, and she can be flawed and scared, and yet so inspiring. Like John says, it's an us, not a them. You are part of us, everyone, and I'm so sorry, I'm not even going to try to comprehend your family's loss. I will not say that you will live forever in my heart, for as John, a friend for you IRL and another inspiration for me, pointed out in his brilliant work dedicated to you, that when I say "you will live forever in my heart" I am suggesting that I will live forever, unlike you. But I WILL say that you will live a long time in OUR heartS. I will pass down you story and the people I pass it down to will pass it down etc., etc. and so will all other Nerdfighters. (I'm a writer too :) ) and I know that maybe you believes in an afterlife, like Gus, or maybe you weren't sure like Hazel, but were ever you are now, I am certain that even if you are not reading this, and even if you never do, the combined warmth of  Nerdfighteria, and potential Nerdfighters who have read your book, and the people your family helps each day all of US combined you will feel that people love you, and know that though your years were too short, they were deep. They touched thousands if lives, and continue to do so. I know people who are only hanging on to life because of you. I hope that that where ever you are, you've gotten the chance to read tfios as John said he wanted. I speak for all of Nerdfighteria, and many others when I say thank you, for being you. For not hiding the truth, but embracing it. For putting up with all the crap. For putting up with the probably many wrong things I just said. Thank you for being so awesome and jokes. You left a mark, but not a scar, and very, very, few people do that.
DFTBA Esther
