WHITE HALL — On March 21, 2012, Estee Alexander Gober, 3, of White Hall, was granted her angel wings. She was born July 5, 2008, in Little Rock, daughter of Chance and Heather Glass Gober of White Hall. Estee and her family have been members of Central Baptist Church and have recently joined First Baptist Church of White Hall.
Estee’s life would seem too short to many, but for those who were touched by her, understand that the quality of existence far exceeds the amount of time we had her with us. Her contagious smile, shrill laughter, bouncy blonde curls, and bright blue eyes could melt the hearts of those around her. She loved Jesus, flowers, dancing in the rain, her kitty cats and the color pink; but more than anything she loved her mommy, daddy and brothers. Her eyes shone the brightest and her smile was the biggest when she was with her family. She enjoyed her time with mommy getting her nails done, shopping and playing dress-up. She loved to imitate her mommy when she cared for her baby dolls. She adored her daddy and loved riding 4 wheelers with him. The sound of her laughter was never more prevalent than when she was playing with the brothers she loved and idolized. She loved swinging on the tire swing with them and sneaking their cell phones to play games.
She shared a love of dancing with her cousin Paige. Story time with her brother Zach was a daily time she looked forward to. It was not unusual to see her dressed in her princess dress catching tadpoles with her brothers. Her presence completed this family. Each day was a blessing. Her parents were so proud of her. From her earliest days at home, to her last moments here with them, she made them feel like luckiest parents on Earth. With Estee’s passing we remind others that her life is one to be celebrated. Although we will miss her every day, especially her smile, she will always remain forever in our hearts. Estee leaves behind many family members and friends who will continue to think of her daily, love her always and hold her close to heart. She is with us in the wind and on the rainbow in the sky. She did not go alone, a part of us with went her. Whatever Estee was to each person who knew her, she still is. Call her by her name, speak to her as we always have. Laugh at the memories of her silly little escapades. Though she cannot be seen, she is still with us. The family wishes to thank the community as well as across the nation for coming together in love and harmony in remembrance of Estee’s life. Estee’s daddy asks that everyone continue to pass forward the love that Estee had for everyone. Survivors include her loving parents; three brothers, Zach Gober of Monticello, Clay Gober and Jack Gober, both of White Hall; grandparents; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Funeral services will be 10:30 a.m., Monday, March 26, 2012 at First Baptist Church of White Hall with Reverend Paul Williams and Reverend Allen Elkins officiating. Burial will follow in Drake Cemetery in Star City with Reverend Frank Matchett officiating by Ralph Robinson & Son Funeral Directors. Visitation will be Sunday afternoon from 3-5 p.m. at Robinson’s.
