Carl, Christine,Brad & Alex & family,
Carl, I've know you since kindergarten. We've been thru a lot all these years. Mom was a special lady. A hot ticket in my book. It was fun not only knowing Molly as a friend's mom, but also as vendor selling to BU. When I would pop in and visit her she would take me around introducing me to everyone as one of your "oldest" friends. I'd say gee Molly can't you just say "long time friend"! LOl . After that she would.

The funeral service was one of the lovelist I've attended. You and the boys wrote such amazing tributes to her. She'd expect nothing less and certainly could be felt smiling from above. The biggest hugs & kisses to y'all. You have many great memories to celebrate her life with. Now you have a little soul named "Molly" to keep her legacy going.

Carl and family, I am saddened by your lost. At the service I had listened and watch you comment on the memories, the love and your friendship you had with your mom. You reminded me so much of her. I first met Molly 27 years ago at Boston University. When I introduced my self to her, she had that same smile that you got from her. when she heard my last name that smile grew larger. At first I thought she was a little strange, then when we started to talk about my family being West Enders well you know our friendship blossemed from there. I'm one of the carpenters , but one of 650 members of tradesmen and custodians along with many managers and staff who she helped and worked with. As a union rep i had many occasions to speak with her about our members, benifits and personal problems . She loved the members of B&G and would stop what she was doing to concentrate on their issues,except when we talked about her West End. Which was quite often. I admirered her,for her love of her family first, BU second and the West End third. We will all miss her caring help, her loving friendship and that humor.

For Judi and Carl and family,
I am deeply saddened at the loss of our beloved Molly but know she is at peace and finally rejoined with her cherished Eddie. My husband and I were blessed to have worked with Molly for so many years and to have her in our lives, our family, our hearts. As were so many blessed at Boston University. The love, support, and humor she bestowed on so many for so long is immeasurable. I met Molly when I was twenty one years old; she was a guiding force and treasured friend from then on. And the bond between Jerry and Molly is legend. Theirs was a special friendship beyond any other I've had the privilege of witnessing in my lifetime. It is difficult to imagine life without Molly-and surely it will never be as much fun. My love, thoughts, and prayers are with you...hoping the incredible legacy and wonderful memories help sustain you through this painful time.

Carl and Judi: Your mother was an extraordinary woman and you were blessed to have her. I thank you for sharing her with us for so many years...she was a second mother to me and I loved her dearly. I am so pleased that Brad and Meghan's daughter is named after her - what a wonderful tribute to a wonderful human being.

I know my father was there to take her hand , give her a big hug and welcome her home. With deepest sympathy - Helen Shiner and Family
