1. Dear Molly,
    I am so sorry to learn of your mother’s death. I just finished reading HOME BEFORE MORNING and was hoping to find your mom and thank her for one of the most moving accounts of surviving Vietnam that I have read thus far. I had friends who served and my first high school “crush” who was MIA until 3 years ago when identifiable remains were recovered in Cambodia. Your mother was a hero in every sense of the word and knew firsthand the insane futility of waging war. I wish you and your family Godspeed. I have no doubt that your mother is in God’s warm embrace, welcoming her fellow warriors and all the while smiling with love for you and your family. After all, no one loves you like your mama does. Take care and God bless you.

  2. What beautiful pictures and words you have shared about your mom. I can’t imagine how difficult not having your mom here is on you and your dad. But, I would like to say thank you. It is because of the sacrifice of people like your mom (and your family) that we get to live the life we do in our country. I know thank you isn’t enough, but I do mean it. Thank you.

  3. You mum sounds amazing. What strength and character. And what a lovely way to honour her. Thank you for sharing. And thanks so much for hosting!

  4. What a beautiful post Molly. I honor your mama with you today. Sounds like she was incredible. What an example to look up to and what a legacy she’s left even after she’s gone. I don’t know you personally and didn’t know your mom, but tI’m sure your mom would be proud of the bold stances you take here on this blog by writing such sincere and honest posts. Happy Memorial Day, Molly!

  5. I just stumbled upon your blog and your mom’s story is so cool! I remember watching China Beach as a kid – I’m sure a lot of it went over my head but I can still remember being happy when the “Reflections” song came on because I knew I was going to get to see something special.

  6. Beautiful, Molly. Thanks for sharing more of her story. I loved China Beach. I remember living in Colorado for the summer babysitting for a missionary family when the finale played. I put the kids to bed, curled up by the TINY tv, moved the rabbit ears, and watched the finale. Summer 1991. I cried!

    I hope they did justice to her story and experience with the show.

    You honor her well.

  7. How wonderful to have an amazing mom! Thank you for sharing your story 🙂 You’re going to be a great mom too!
