Throw back to 1985 – a scene remembered by many as one of the most heartbreaking in Australian television history – Molly Jones of A Country Practice (played by Anne Tenney) would die of leukaemia, while lying on a couch in the garden watching Brendan play with their daughter Chloe.

35 years on, we reflect on the heritage of the beautiful home we now call Rosedale Medical Practice West Pennant Hills. We reflect on the values of #kindness, #love, #humanity, #friendship, #life, #resilience, that continue to live on to this day. There is something truly magical about serving our fellow humans from the house that Molly once called her home.

“Mad”, we said, “Mad Molly Jones”

But then we didn’t know

The kindness that was hers to spare

The joy that she took everywhere

We simply didn’t know.

“Mad”, we said, “Mad Molly Jones”

But then we hadn’t heard

How she could fight to save a flower,

And give each man and dog his hour

We simply hadn’t heard.

“Mad”, we said, “Mad Molly Jones”

But then we hadn’t seen

That she could make a dull day bright,

That she was colour, warmth, and light

We simply hadn’t seen.

Molly Jones, it’s over

Yet we cannot say goodbye

For all the loveliness we knew

And love of life and friendship true

And laughter brave once dwelt in you

And how can such things die?
