Mrs. Molly Marie had many family and friends that she treasured, her sister-in-laws: Mrs. Dale Gregory and Mrs. Linda Locklear, were so close to her that she considered them as sisters. Her grandchildren: Dylan Locklear, Jordan Locklear, Skylar Locklear, Ethan Jones, Dustin Hunt, Halie Hunt, and Justin Soles enjoyed spending time with their Grandma Molly listening to stories of days gone by while sharing a laugh or two along with lots of hugs and kisses that only a Grandmother can share.
