My deep condolences for Molly's loss. No words can describe how sad I feel. We have met briefly in the New Delhi Knowledge Team event at Bain, and I was instantly attracted to Molly's positive energy, fun spirit and smile.. Even if we met briefly, and then catching up when going back to our home countries was a real pleasure. I still remember how friendly, helpful and generous she was.. The sadness and bitterness of losing you goes beyond words. May her soul rest in peace. She will always stay in our hearts.. We love you Molly!
