Dear Mick And Kellie, thankyou for letting Molly into our lives (even though you really had no choice) she has brought us so many memories, that they have often discussed over the dinner table, they always make us laugh. Be strong for each other, every pink song, pink flower, pink cake, pink colour will always remind us of little Mol, she will never be far as she is spreading pink over the world. I am internally grateful for our children to be a part of each others lives. Lots of Love Kim, Tim Bree and Molly's BFFL Livxxxx

Dear Kel & Mick, I was so so sorry to hear of the loss of your beautiful daughter Molly. Every time I hear of the loss of another child/adult with DS it just breaks my heart. As a Mum of a daughter with DS myself I can only imagine the pain that you are going through. I truly hope that you can manage to take some comfort from the messages of support that you are receiving. My thoughts and prayers go to you both and your family. Fly high with your other DS brothers and sisters Molly! xxxxxxx

Dear Kellie, Mick, Lachie and Tom. My heart breaks for your loss. I remember meeting you at the first Dravet Syndrome Conference 3 years ago. Molly was the same age Jasmin is now. I remember her smile and love for life. Angel on earth now angel in heaven, smiling over you. Some people you met in life no matter for how long you never forget and Molly sure was one of them. When I watch the videos of Molly I see so much of Jasmin in her. Dravets is a horrible horrible Syndrome but the people with it are truely special. I send you all love and strength. You are a family that truely inspires me. Thinking of you always Sue xxx

Dear kellie, Mick , lachie and Tom, Molly might have been here for a short time but she certainly made a big impact. It is hard to imagine that one little girl can imact so many lives but she did. I still remember first meeting Kellie and Moll at our first ever epilepsy camp. You truly did change our lives. We wouldnt have our seizure response dog if it wasn't for your insuring story. I had never heard of dravet syndrome until meeting u - now we know it way too intimately. I wish this visitor called dravet would leave our lives but he is here to stay. You have always been more than willing to support us when we needed help and even with Molly passing you are still reaching out to help others. Molly was very luckly to have such a special family. She will be forever missed but her legacy for all dravet kids will live on forever. Hugs and kisses love Cheri xxxxx

Dear Mick, Kellie, Tom, Lachie, Col & Pauline, Lea & Pete, Pat & Brooke, Tim & Daisy, Hannah and all the extended loving family of Molly. What a week - but what a life! How proud you must be of your brave girl. We know how much you loved her, and how you walked a gutsy 11 years with her. But today our focus is on Molly who inspired you all, and so many others, in her "big and bold" way.As we know only too well, the loss of a dear child is so hard for parents and families. As I see it,our grief is simply a reflection of our love. We only grieve so deeply because we loved so much. It's been so good to be part of the "Strongman Clan" for the past 35 years!! So many good memories and crazy stories. It will be a privilege for us to be part of Molly's "Pink Party" tomorrow, and I look forward to being the Celebrant/MC of that party! Lots of love, Liz & Phil
