Drusilla "Molly" Sever Larsen Roth
Her gold wedding band is what graces my left ring finger and the mate to it, is on Jim's finger.
My granny, Eileen Getz, lived 'over the hill' from Molly. They were friends and neighbors for many years. When Jim & I got married in 1995, my granny gave me a special gift. It was the hand painted bowl that was very special to her and always was placed on the upper shelf. Turns out, it was made by Molly and given to granny as a gift. When I showed it to Molly she was floored and said " It has come home".
I could go on and on about Grandma Molly and the impact she had on my life and I know many were touched by her 'tell it like it is' attitude and zest for life. She was the true definition of one tough cookie, with a man by her side that would lasso the moon for her, if she asked him to.
I would like to think Jim and I are kinda like that too. :)
