Marlen, Patty and all the family, please accept my condolences on the death of Mollie. Seems like yesterday when she received her First Communion. Receiving the Eucharist shaped her into the loving young woman she became. Hold her in your hearts until you meet her again in heaven where she now calls heaven, home.

She was such blessing to got to work with every day.  She always saw the good in people and her faith was unwavering.  She made us laugh daily and her heart and love was so pure!
