Mrs. Mollie Jordan was a very special person to all that she met. She left you with that special feeling that would remind you of the times that you spent with her. I will always remember our special moments of conversations, our travelings to the Sunday School Union Services and most importantly the time we traveled to the play and had a follow-up dinner with her daughters. It was a glorious time because love was shared through stories, meal and comedy. She and her daughters made me feel a big part of the family and most importantly welcome. That is how Mollie was- always making sure that you were a part of the group. I thank the Lord for the times we spent together and the LOVE she shared. She taught me how to be a better person and for that I am grateful. Thank You, Dear Mollie, and see you in our Father's Home when I get there.

Mollie, My dear Cousin, I will always remember how you inspired me and always gave me excellent advice. Your words of wisdom helped me through difficult times. Every time I visited, you always told me "God is good all the time". This will forever be in my heart and on my mind. I will never forget spending nights with you eating and laughing. When I visited you we talked for hours. My Mom and I will never forget you for calling my Dad and singing to him before he passed away. Rest in peace my cousin, my friend until we meet again.

Aunt Mollie was a woman of elegance and grace. I remember how she would get us together when we were young and make us sing. We never had a dull weekend or summer cause she always had something planned. We had the best holidays and family gatherings at her house. The memories and laughs with her will forever be cherished.
