Molina Family and Friends and Relatives - I am very sorry for your sad loss and the hole her passing leaves. I have been close friends with Trey for 30+ years and know how much he loved his mom and she loved him. Trey’s strong character and goodness is a reflection of his mom and her legacy. Peace. Eric

Sincere condolences to the family. Lydia (and your Dad) were such a big part of our lives growing up in Corpus. So many fond memories. Lydia was my first real role model as a working woman. Even as a young girl I was so fascinated that she was a successful working mom! She was ahead of her time. I loved sitting around listening to her tell stories at family gatherings. I share in your sorrow and wish you all comfort in the days to come.
