Not sure what to say?

Godspeed Molly, and thank you for sharing a part of your life with us. Now sharing her wit in the ultimate venue...

When I moved to Kentucky from Texas in 1986, Molly became my lifeline to my birth state and my wonderful time there in the 70's and 80's. At the time, she was a regular on NPR's Morning Edition. Her unique voice and pithy remarks often made my week! Thanks Molly. I think of you often.

My heart goes out to Molly's family. May you find comfort in Isaiah 25:8,9

Molly, you'll live forever through your work and wonderful humor. You had such a fine spirit, lived such a big life, and left such magnificent impressions behind. Thank you for the inspiration and for being such a fine example of personal courage.

Molly, it's been hard without you. My political buddies who have lunch every Fri just talked about you past Fri,Apr9,2010. I followed you from your Texas Observer days. Thanks !

For Molly...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour...

You were a hell of a gal! You will be missed.
