miss molly: a legacy

Mrs. Molly Kay, 46, went to meet her Lord and Savior Sunday, June 26, 2011.
Molly Kay was a devoted wife, mother, teacher, and friend. She orchestrated the affairs of the household and supported Eddie in his career. She was committed to raising their kids in a Godly home emphasizing the importance of honoring God in their education. She was always looking for a good recipe and enjoyed cooking healthy food for her family. Molly was very involved and supportive of her kid’s interests. It brought a lot of joy to her heart to see them express their creativity through their sewing, photography, cooking, art and blogging. The following verse ministered to her especially during the last two years throughout her courageous battle with cancer. “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31.
She is survived by her: husband of 25 years and the love of her life, Eddie;
daughters, Katie and Emily;
son, Andrew, all of the home...

As many of you readers know, Miss Molly passed away this past Sunday after a week long battle in the hosptial. When she was admitted on that Saturday June 18th, we had thought this was a minor thing, at least I did. Little did we know she would be running & dancing in the arms of Jesus just a week later. 

Miss Molly leaves behind a legacy like no other, and you'd know that from hearing one paragraph of the 3 speeches her friends said at her funeral service. I haven't cried like I did Tues. & today, both at the visitation and the funeral/graveside. Just ask Andrew; I gave him a sobbing one armed hug. ;) Her service was beautiful & I sat in awe of the sweet things everyone said about her.

It hasn't quite set in yet...for any of us. When we went back to the family's house to have a dinner, I kept thinking "This is for Miss Molly. Why isn't she here?" And then I remembered and had to stop tears from falling. Emily told me she keeps thinking her mom is taking a nap or out running errands, but she remembers like I do.

If ya'll would, please keep the whole family in your prayers. This is such a time of transition & grieving in their family so they need your prayers for the Lord's strength in their family. Also, if you would pray for all of us, the family's friends...we need the wisdom of what to say to comfort them in this time. It's foreign territory for me, and I'm so afraid of saying something insenstive or not thinking before I speak, which I do. A lot. 

Here's to the life and legacy of Miss Molly! We love you.
