    To all of Molly’s family, we just want to say that we are blessed to have known Molly, and to have enjoyed her can do spirit and hospitality whenever we visited Minnesota. We hope that your memories of her will sustain you through this difficult time of loss. We cannot help but think that as she enters heaven, there will be a very large number of loving family and friends awaiting her. If there are polkas in heaven, we are sure she is dancing now. She is young again for all eternity.
