What is this blog for?

This blog is the beginning of a story. A story of hope, tragedy, defeat, triumph, grief, joy, faith, giving up, letting go, losing yourself, finding your voice, and everything in between. One day we hope to have a non-profit that will make sure that no child feels the shame that our Molly felt. Until then, I will share my thoughts and experiences with grief, thoughts on many of the aspects that contributed to Molly’s death. This is a place to ROCK. To have Radical Open Conversation and Kindness every day. I’ll tell you the good, the bad, and the ugly. I just ask that you start doing the same with your own family and friends.

    Hi Molly, I love your blog. I stumbled across it somehow. Your mother was my third grade teacher at Winston Elementary school about 40 years ago. She was the most wonderful teacher in the world. She made me feel like I was the only child in the world and the most important person too. I remember meeting your father when he was her fiancé. He came to visit our class on his birthday. I think he may have been turning 24 and we all got a chance to give him a lick with a paddle. I also remember going to your parents wedding and accidentally taking your mother’s bridal bouquet home. Of course my mother got a call from your grandmother the next day asking us to please bring it by if we had it. We did have it and it was still in tact. Your mom had given it to me to hold for a second while she spoke to some of her guests and my eight year old mind thought she was giving it to me to keep. Memories are awesome. I will never forget your mother and the way she made me feel so many years ago.

      Tracy! I was actually sitting with Mom when I got the notification of your comment! Oh, how I have heard stories of you my entire life! She loved your class, and has told me so much about each of you! Mom has always said that one regret from her life is asking for that bouquet back! She was a baby herself back then! I love hearing stories of Mom as a teacher, and I hope that my students also know how much I love them! Mom’s email is jgraygarner@gmail.com. She would love to hear from you! Thank you for reaching out. It means a lot to me, but it touched my mom so deeply!
