Mollie will be sorely missed at Rosie's neighborhood Christmas dinner this year! She was so fun to chat with, and also was an excellent companion for Eddie's mom, Hessie, while they were both living at Cottonwood Village. She was a lovely woman with a beautiful soul, and we have all been enriched by knowing her. Rest in peace, Mollie!

Mom, it is hard to believe a year has come and gone since you left us. Honoring you on the one year anniversary, at your graveside, to be as close to you as was earthly possible was very special to me. And, today, is the first anniversary of your Celebration of Life service. I am so thankful you are at peace, yet I miss you very, very much every day. So many fond memories of you make me smile and the next minute, bring a tear to my eye. You will be in my heart forever, you are a part of me, perhaps better said, I am a part of you. Til we meet again... Your loving daughter
