  • GEORGE & FAMILY, So sorry for your loss. Molly was a beautiful person, inside as well as on the out. My favorite memory of you and her was when you took time to come to our wedding and took pictures, had you not done this I wouldn’t have those precious memories to look at. Thank you again! May god bless you and comfort you in this time of sorrow. Heaven received a very special angel!

  • We are so sorry George to hear of Molly’s passing. Dave and I were thinking about her last week and wanting to visit. I had something contagious and was afraid to be around her. We wish we could’ve said goodbye. She was so special and we loved her. Heaven just gained another angel. Praying for comfort for you and your family. Hugs.
    Cindy and Dave Link

  • Oh Aunt Molly, I can’t begin to tell you how much I genuinely admired you. You were such a strong, loving, funny, smart ass comment under your breath kind of lady. I use to love coming to your split level house and playing with the toys in the basement. You were an amazing sister and my grandma loved you more than you’ll ever know, she’d light up when you’d call her and it always made her day. You’ll forever be missed but always appreciated and remembered!!!!
    Love Always,
    Your B
