I was blessed by her warmth, love of cats and Weird Al, and her positive attitude. Michelle has been such an uplifting person no matter what happens she's always been there with a smile and a hand for anybody who needs it. I have always felt lifted up when she was at the store. You are missed by all of us more than I have words to tell, Michelle. I am a better person for having known you. Thank you.

Michelle and I graduated from high school together, and shared many of the same classes. She was witty, funny, gentle, happy-go-lucky. She always had a smile for everyone she greeted. She had a kind and warm heart. I'm glad that we were able to share some laughs at one of our last class reunions. Michelle was the type of person that made the world a better place.
