My heart goes out to you as family. I'm thankful to have known Mr. Moll. I remember the many times walking through during his breakfast and stopping to offer a hello and good morning to him. There were several times he would ask me to pray for him. I wish I knew more about him in those days, which would have spurred more conversation and interests of what I did.
God bless each of you and may you experience encouragement and peace in the days ahead.
