Doris and family, I am saddened to learn of Molly's passing. She was always so sweet to me and made me feel special. Alb used to tell me I was "something rotten on a stick" and she would get after him, telling him 'don't tell that young 'un that, she is not!' I have lots of wonderful memories of early childhood with Molly, she will surely be missed. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
