    Iam so very sorry. Molly was a wonderful nurse and friend. I will miss Molly and going to Christmas in the Country, laughing and talking together. Prayers with deepest sympathy to Jan and Mark.

    May our beautiful cousin Molly be in the loving arms of Christ. We will miss Molly and meeting her at craft shows. Love, Eileen, Kathy and Molly, the Murphy cousins from N.Ton.

    Jan& Mark. I’m so very sorry to hear of Mollys passing. I didn’t know she was ill. I know how difficult it is to loose someone you love. My son Dan just died on the 16th of February. Please let me know how I can help

    Another “rock” of the RN staff at what used to be the best hospital in Niagara County leaves us. I don’t remember her having to take a day off and she was the nicest person to deal with in the bumpiest years at LMH. I don’t know of anyone who did not appreciate working with, or for her. I’m sorry I will not be available until Summer, but there will be a service here in Durham as soon as I can arrange one, though she hardly needs ant help from me.
    She has already earned her medals. Doc

    “ So many memories of Molly from LMH, esp the old 1 west pre renovation come to mind. . We had some rough times, worked hard to take good care of people and enjoyed coming to work together. Those days included some very sad times but also many laughs. We had a good team, survived together, with friendships lasting till this day. After badgering her, Molly reluctantly made a beautiful Christmas ornament for me that has hung on my tree ever since. Molly was kind, thoughtful and very good at what she did. If you were lucky to have her watching over you, you were blessed. RIP Ms Molly
