My wife and I met Molinda and Michael several years ago in Florida at our timeshare after noting their Ohio license plates. We are from Cinn. A friendship developed quickly and we always looked forward to spending time with them during our week in Fl. Molinda was an impressive lady whose compassion, intellect and no nonsense way of viewing life made her a joy to be with. I will miss her deeply! My heart aches for Michael and the family. - Kent

Molinda was our neighbor in the 1970's. What a beautiful family. Not only was she a great Mother, but she also took care of foster children. I would babysit for her. She was always so pleasant. RIP I want to give our condolences to Susan, Sheila, Francee, Toby, and Wayne.
