Vic and Family,
It was a blessing to walk along side Molly as a colleague in ministry. I appreciated the opportunity to have been her pastor for three years. Will not be able to attend the memorial service; however, you are in my heart as we remember the life of a faithful servant of God, a good friend and someone loved by those who know her.

Vic,
How often you and Molly are mentioned around Grace UMC in Gainesville. Many who were ill or lost loved ones during that year you were here, still mention how much comfort Molly was to them. She had such a tender,loving heart and we know she will be very much missed by you and the family. We were blessed for her path to cross ours for just that short time. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
