16-year-old Esther Earl, a huge inspiration to Nerdfighteria, died this morning. We will miss her so much.

You can read Esther's story and leave tributes in her honour here:

The family have requested that in lieu of flowers donations can be made to either of the following:

“Friends of Esther”, a fund which will go to help Esther’s family with expenses incurred during her care. Write checks to: Friends of Esther; send to: Friends of Esther, 118 Billings Street, Quincy, MA 02171


"The Harry Potter Alliance". Send gifts to them at their web site: or mail gifts to: The HP Alliance, PO Box 441640, West Somerville MA 02144. Be sure to mark your gift as "for Esther" or "with Esther" so that they can use it for a project in her name. Thank you!

Rest in peace Esther.

Nerdfighteria lost someone very precious today. Esther will always be in our hearts and in our memories. Though I never met her, she touched my life and so many others. She will be dearly missed. DFTBA, all.

I have lit a candle for Esther. I think it'd be nice if others did too.
