I will remember you , i will remember you on days that have no special meaning. I will remeber you because you where in my life, and had made memories in my story. We are family ,and not being able to be there, not being able to see you one last time does not bring the closer one needs. I hope you knew how beautiful you where, how smart, how loved and how missed your going to be.

Michelle always had such unique mind; externally she was always able to find the positive. She embraced her uniqueness, opinions and spirituality. Growing up and having her be the little sister of my best friend I have so many fond/yet funny memories. She was always well liked and well received. She was love. She is missed and survived by so many people. I hope you all find peace knowing she is at rest. You have one beautiful guardian angel looking down. Lots of love and prayers of healing to the entire family and close friends.

Denise, Ken, Tara and family, I have no words of comfort because they won't comfort you. I have no sage advice to move through what you are in the midst of. It would never work. I have sorrow. Very much sorrow. I have gratitude I got to see her in the summer and she was wonderful. I will hold onto her excitement to be home and hanging on my arm telling me she loved me. I loved her too. My heart has a hole. THIS is not supposed to be the way life goes. I send you all my prayers that the angels escorting her to a perfect love return to give comfort and strength to you all as you remain behind to miss her. I pray for peace as you conquer each emotion and hurdle. This journey is not easy. Never for a parent or sibling. No love is like that of yours. Keeping you in tight prayers. She will forever be my Chinese Kissing kid. I still smile when I remember her innocent curiosity and the tender age where things were literal. Shush always part of my 4-pack. Fondly, Mary
