My mom loved pens and was always buying them. She grew up in a time when we wrote to one another, when two people would have long and meaningful correspondence with one another. You could get to know a person writing to them, update them on life's biggest biggest moments putting pen to paper, or fall more in love with them with every lick of a stamp. Can you imagine such a thing today?
Molly had this beautiful, distinctive handwriting. She printed instead of writing in cursive, but each letter was angled and fluid; her handwriting was beautiful to look at. She loved to write, and she had a great eye for the best writing instruments. If you ever borrowed a pen from her, you wanted to steal it.
This is one of those little things that was a part of the big person that was Molly Gray. It's something you can't find in a photo, and album, or a video. You had to be close to her and love her to know it. I saved it in her Memory Kit under "Little Things". -Jeff
