Although I'm only up to page 74 (where I found out about this site) I am touched with the epic journey of Esther. I'm thirteen and Esther was 12 when she found out she had thyroid cancer, I don't know how she stayed so optimistic and full of hope (which is a good thing!) when such a bad thing was placed into her, and her families, life. I wish I could've met her, but I wish even more she lived to fulfill her dream of becoming an author, she definitely would've been great at that. To Lori and Wayne (beautiful parents, no one loved you more than Esther), Evangeline (who was such a supportive, loving and caring sister and friend), Abraham (so far I haven't really heard much about you, you're still a baby! But I hope you hear all about your amazing, inspirational sister), and all her/your relatives; even when times were/are tough, you all stuck together with Esther. You gave your little Star the best 16 years anyone could ever have. I'm sure up in heaven (in between her parties with God!) Esther is looking over you all. I think the hallmark care card means a lot; just read these messages and think about Esther if you feel down! I hope caringbridge reaches 1 million! Oh, and I love the names Blueberry and Pancake!

Best wishes,

Dear Earl Family,
  I had just finished reading This Star Won't Go Out TODAY!!! I cried because of your loss. When I found out theta Esther died in 2010, I weeped because I knew that- I'm sorry I'm crying again! But, she is with God and Jesus and she is happy right now! I wish I could hear more about her.

Hey I know a lot of people have written on here and I know that probably no one will read this but I just wanted to say that I'm reading "this star won't go out" and I'm so touched. Your an amazing person and your parents should be so proud to have raised such an amazing kid. I'm 14 years old and my name is Abigail May, I suffer from depression and have gotten threw it with writing and keeping to myself. I'm still suffering but I believe that it's writing and reading as helped more than anything. I hope your in heaven looking down smiling because you have made a huge unpack with your little infinity. I hope your family is doing great.

Esther died in 2010. She fought her tremendous fight differently than others. She was not overwhelmed with grief or the thought that cancer consumed her. Cancer was a thing, not a label. She never thought of herself as 'the girl with thyroid cancer', she thought of herself as beautiful, bright Esther who had this thing that sucked. She always believed she would live and, if she died, she would not be frightened or timid. She would fall into the loving arms of the father. That's all she ever wanted, really. Not to die, but to overcome death. Estee was someone we could never really figure out. Her bravery was overbearing, her selflessness She was SO humble and never expected sympathy. I love Esther, and she will always be alive. In the canvas of our souls and in another realm. So don't fret, we will all see Esther again. This star won't go out. <3

Dear Esther, My name is Stella( and we share the same name but in different languages.) ..Well, I'm from Brazil, I'm 23 years old and I have a child called Angelica (It's almost the same name of your old sister Angie) that was born in the year that you went to heaven. I don't know why but I feel like we're friends. I belive that you can read this from where you are and I want you to know that I want to hug you in heaven one day. You're the best person, the besy child I've ever knew (sorry for my bad English... I haven't studied and praticed). I'm reading your diary and I feel so close to you. I'm nerd too! I love HP, LOR and I'm studying Physics in my college...and I like to write too and always loved to read about Esther in the Bible....I would love to have met you before... I think you'd like me because I've always considered different ans probably you'd call me to go to your house and play your computer.. And.. I want you to know that you're giving me strenght to live and be happy because before meeting your story I was very depressive... Thanks for making me a better person! And please, pray for me to God because I know you're near him.... Kisses and love!!

I will probably be commenting something every here and there but hello I'm 12 years old and I'm on about page 3 fourty something! My friend has read the book and lent it to me. She cried. She showed one of our teachers the quote and the teacher read it while she was on the treadmill and cried. I'm honestly so touched by your story. Stay strong. After all you can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you. Philipians 4:13. I wish I would have known Esther and it's too late but I hope that once it's my time to go to paradise we will become such great friends.

Having just read This Star Won't Go Out, and having the wristband on permanently I just wanted to say that Esther Earl was a remarkable and inspirational person, with an amazing story. I know I never met her and that I never knew her, and that so many people have stated that Esther changed the world just like she always wanted, but I just wanted to say it again, she made a difference. She never forgot to be awesome, and the world is a better place thanks to her contribution.

Hi, I'm from Brazil and I am reading the book of Esther. Well .. What about someone you have never met and know you will not have the pleasure of knowing but who nonetheless inspires you so much? You know when you think you have anything to say in your head and can not put into words? Yeah ... I'm going through it now. I know that wherever she is Esther hear me now. Dear Esther Grace, I just wanted you to know I love to have known him, I admire the way you looked at life and appreciate even more the strength of his having fought until the last second. Glad you've gone in peace and know that is where God has prepared a special place for you. When night falls and the stars appear showing all its splendor will look at the sky and look for you and imagine that you are with the greatest brilliance. Every time I open your book and read about the way you handled the same as cancer or having gone through difficult situations their faith was never shaken feel a bit useless for being angry even the smallest things in my day-to-day or often not value the beautiful things in life like family and friends. Believe me, because of his book, for your sake, I'm reflecting more, acting more by thanking you, living longer. I wish you had read The Fault In Our Stars (JONH GREEN DID A WONDERFUL JOB) and seen the last Harry Potter movies. I think you would have liked them. They are amazing. Unfortunately, there is no knowledge but I believe you just the kind of person that God sends to earth to teach us lessons of love, perseverance and above all, faith.

I honestly don't know what to say, I started reading This Star Won't Go Out and in a matter of milliseconds you inspired me. You're a fantastically brave girl and I wish I knew you, we would have fangirled to an oblivion about Harry Potter. 
I hope you're partying hard up there with God.
You're such an inspiration, thank you so much <3

Hello, I am Brazilian and I am reading the book of Esther, I'm not very good with words, but I needed to write something here, haha, the book of Esther is so perfect and encouraging to read it made ​​me think more about my life and as there are people in far worse situations than mine and still have a good life, I really wanted Esther saw this comment, but I know it will be impossible (or not), I wish I could have known, you inspire me Esther, your story is an inspiration!

I don't really know what to say, but I need to say something. I don't even know if this is the right place to say it. Anyway. I should get on with it.
I started reading This Star Won't Go Out the other day. Needless to say, it's changed a lot of things involved with me. It really is a great book and I am so unbelievably glad that Esther's memory could be shared in this way. Obviously, whilst reading, I've become quiet sad. 
In reading her journal entrees, I can't help but wish I had known her. I still want to know her. I just want to shake her and or give her a high five. Sometimes I feel like maybe I was too late, but I still can know her in some ways and that is good enough for me. 
I don't normally pray. My relationship with God has gone off the rails in these past few months, but I am praying that this family remains as awesome as it is forever. I am praying that Esther is having the time of her life upstairs. I am praying that both Esther and her family are as good as they deserve to be all the time. 

I know this little note is going to be lost in the sea of other little (or not so little) notes, but that makes me happy. That many people care enough to say something. That many people have been affected by Esther and her blindingly brilliant star. 

Sometimes I resent being on this planet. The negative seems overwhelming. It's people like you guys who convince me otherwise. God bless you all. 

Esther, Godspeed.

Oh Esther,you really inspire me. You're a cute and sweet girl, you're an angel, you're a star. You have a greatest heart. You're a big fan of Harry Potter, right? Ahn...they made a great job in the latest movies, and  "The Fault In Our Stars" is a PERFECT book, John Green made a wonderful job, is my favorite book <3 I'm reading your story, and OMG you're princess and warrior <3
I'm a brazilian girl and I admire you an your fight against the cancer. What else to say? Ahn...yeah, You're a pretty girl, really, you're a very very very pretty  haha Okay, I adore you girl. Thanks for everything <3

Well, okay. I'm from Brazil, and read the book of Esther. I never got to know her story in this period, but I am Brazilian, and was kind of hard, but okay. I was at a wedding, while everyone laughed and danced celebrating, I was reading the book. So, I liked it, in fact I loved. Had her words, reports of her diaries, and I know there was her life. Do not even know if anyone will come to read this, and I do not know if they will understand, because I'm having to use a program that translates from Portuguese into English (which by the way is crap), but I'm still here writing. Esther never will read, much less think it will serve for something, but I just wish she was here just to see how much she currently inspires many lives. Goodbye.

I will probably be commenting something every here and there but hello I'm 12 years old and I'm on about page 3 fourty something! My friend has read the book and lent it to me. She cried. She showed one of our teachers the quote and the teacher read it while she was on the treadmill and cried. I'm honestly so touched by your story. Stay strong. After all you can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you. Philipians 4:13. I wish I would have known Esther and it's too late but I hope that once it's my time to go to paradise we will become such great friends.

Hi, I'm from Brazil and I am reading the book of Esther. Well .. What about someone you have never met and know you will not have the pleasure of knowing but who nonetheless inspires you so much? You know when you think you have anything to say in your head and can not put into words? Yeah ... I'm going through it now. I know that wherever she is Esther hear me now. Dear Esther Grace, I just wanted you to know I love to have known him, I admire the way you looked at life and appreciate even more the strength of his having fought until the last second. Glad you've gone in peace and know that is where God has prepared a special place for you. When night falls and the stars appear showing all its splendor will look at the sky and look for you and imagine that you are with the greatest brilliance. Every time I open your book and read about the way you handled the same as cancer or having gone through difficult situations their faith was never shaken feel a bit useless for being angry even the smallest things in my day-to-day or often not value the beautiful things in life like family and friends. Believe me, because of his book, for your sake, I'm reflecting more, acting more by thanking you, living longer. I wish you had read The Fault In Our Stars (JONH GREEN DID A WONDERFUL JOB) and seen the last Harry Potter movies. I think you would have liked them. They are amazing. Unfortunately, there is no knowledge but I believe you just the kind of person that God sends to earth to teach us lessons of love, perseverance and above all, faith.

I honestly don't know what to say, I started reading This Star Won't Go Out and in a matter of milliseconds you inspired me. You're a fantastically brave girl and I wish I knew you, we would have fangirled to an oblivion about Harry Potter. 
I hope you're partying hard up there with God.
You're such an inspiration, thank you so much <3

Dear Earl Family,
  I had just finished reading This Star Won't Go Out TODAY!!! I cried because of your loss. When I found out theta Esther died in 2010, I weeped because I knew that- I'm sorry I'm crying again! But, she is with God and Jesus and she is happy right now! I wish I could hear more about her.

Esther died in 2010. She fought her tremendous fight differently than others. She was not overwhelmed with grief or the thought that cancer consumed her. Cancer was a thing, not a label. She never thought of herself as 'the girl with thyroid cancer', she thought of herself as beautiful, bright Esther who had this thing that sucked. She always believed she would live and, if she died, she would not be frightened or timid. She would fall into the loving arms of the father. That's all she ever wanted, really. Not to die, but to overcome death. Estee was someone we could never really figure out. Her bravery was overbearing, her selflessness She was SO humble and never expected sympathy. I love Esther, and she will always be alive. In the canvas of our souls and in another realm. So don't fret, we will all see Esther again. This star won't go out. <3

Having just read This Star Won't Go Out, and having the wristband on permanently I just wanted to say that Esther Earl was a remarkable and inspirational person, with an amazing story. I know I never met her and that I never knew her, and that so many people have stated that Esther changed the world just like she always wanted, but I just wanted to say it again, she made a difference. She never forgot to be awesome, and the world is a better place thanks to her contribution.

Well, okay. I'm from Brazil, and read the book of Esther. I never got to know her story in this period, but I am Brazilian, and was kind of hard, but okay. I was at a wedding, while everyone laughed and danced celebrating, I was reading the book. So, I liked it, in fact I loved. Had her words, reports of her diaries, and I know there was her life. Do not even know if anyone will come to read this, and I do not know if they will understand, because I'm having to use a program that translates from Portuguese into English (which by the way is crap), but I'm still here writing. Esther never will read, much less think it will serve for something, but I just wish she was here just to see how much she currently inspires many lives. Goodbye.
