Mollie Jo Ragonesi 12/5/47-7/21/14
I was not aware we had this Remembrance thread, but since we do here is where I wish to remember my Mollie.
Mollie Jo was my significant other, a term accepted for those that live together or share their lives together, we were not married.
She walked into my life several years ago and we immediately found common interests, especially motorcycles. We built Steelhorse Restoration together and were in the stages of a massive expansion of buying a shop and a new home.
Mollie loved riding anytime be it 2am on the Goldwing down dark empty highways listening to the radio or during the day just cruising on the Yamaha Venture Royale, she liked the Royale slightly better cause it made her seating closer to me, she was not a big woman but with her German Russian background and her long blonde hair she was very attractive, the pics I do use of her show her from a year or so before I met her when she was a bit more "plump".
Mollie was a state sponsored foster care mother, at times she had as many as three foster children, for over two years she cared for my own son who was autistic, without her he may not be the good man he is now and back in my home as a loving son.
Moliie had very little family in Alaska, her son I have not heard from since her passing and also nobody has told me of any service, the only thing I hear is "maybe in October" wich greatly saddens me, that is so cruel to be taken away suddenly and then to have your own family just walking away from you, no obituary, no service, no funeral.
But I will not forget, in time I will try to get some more recent photos, for now it appears as though her home and possessions are slowly being sold off. If only I had made a more binding marriage contract I could legally step in and put a stop to whats happening.
Here is to Mollie, my friend and soulmate that I seriously doubt I will ever see while standing on earth, maybe in Australia I might possibly find another with her same style, energy and intelligence.
