Thank you seems inadequate to express our gratitude for the groundswell around the Volley for Molly event on Sept. 25 (Globe West, Oct. 1). However, we must recognize the people who made this benefit possible.
We wish to thank Lexington High School volleyball coach Jane Bergin and her coaching staff, Peter Amirault and Lindsay Randall, for their unflagging support and commitment to the fund-raiser, their team, and its individual players.
We particularly want to thank the LHS varsity team under the leadership of cocaptains Meaghan Murphy and Emily Wiederhold. We also extend appreciation to the Reading Memorial High coaches and team members and surrounding towns for participating in the amazing night, and Globe correspondent Connie Paige for a sensitive and accurate story. We recognize the generosity and efforts of all the local donors, the LHS sports department, the office staff and custodians, and the fire marshal - for not shutting down the packed gym.
We especially want to thank all the fans and friends who filled the stands and community members who continue to make contributions.
Lexington’s reaction to Molly’s diagnosis of ovarian cancer has brought awareness to the continued need for the fight against all kinds of cancer, and for that, we are thankful.
Karen Large, and Eric, Jill, and Molly Eisenberg
Walnut Creek, Calif.
(The Eisenberg family members are former residents of Skyview Road in Lexington.)
A memorial service for Molly Eisenberg will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at First Parish in Lexington, 7 Harrington Road, across from the Lexington Battle Green. A guestbook can be found here.
