    Michele was a really good friend to me as she was a wife and mother. I feel so bad for your whole family. I will be so happy when I am able to see you again smiling. Always Smiling!

    A beautiful person, and even more beautiful on the inside. I feel honored to have met her and she meant so much to me. She will be deeply missed. She loved her family more than anything in the world, and I send my love to all of them.

    I was a customer at Safeway and always looked forward to seeing Michele when I did my shopping. She was always so friendly and had a geniune interest in people. I shared my banana bread recipe with her and made her a loaf to take home. She said she and her husband loved the banana bread and couldn’t stop eating it, which warmed my heart! Glad to have known such a wonderful woman and she will be greatly missed!!

    This seems so surreal. She was a second mom to me for most of my life. Friend, mom, partner in crime to all. 🙂 For all of her family thank you for sharing her with all of us. Thank you for letting her adopt all of us. We went thru births, deaths, marriages, divorces, incognito undercover operations that usually ended with us 3 in tears from laughing. She had a twinkle in her eye and one of the most beautiful women I have been blessed to know, her daughter as well. Im so so sorry you have to go thru this. I love you all so very much. No matter how far apart we were her, you could always find Michele because of that beautiful, gleeming smile and twinkle in the eye. My heart hurts from her loss. Her whole life was about her beautiful kids and them grandbabies. Anyone who knew her knew her priorities were her family and those of us she adopted. I will always treasure and love all of you. I will always treasure and love my memories… Good and bad, of my life that included my MamaMichele.

    2nd attempt at this. My heart is truly broken. She has always been such an amazing mom, friend and adopted mom to those of us fortunate enough to have known her. Thank you to the entire family for sharing her with us all of these years. Always available to lean on, confide in, stand by your side or back you up. Good things DO come in small packages and she was a dynamo. This is just so completely surreal. She helped and stood by our sides through births, deaths, marriages, divorces and even middle of the night hospital runs and incognito investigative missions that usually ended with us 3 in tears from laughter. Her entire life was based on and around her chidlren, husband, family and friends, but mainly around all “dem granbabies”. Her family was her pride and joy and for so many, many years I was fortunate enough to be considered as adopted. Such an incredibly beautiful woman with an incredibly beautiful smile and twinkle in her eyes. Her sense of humor, passion for teasing and joking around and her ornery side that you could tell by the sparkle in her eyes. All traits she passed on To her beautiful children… She passed on the best of her traits to her incredibly beautiful daughter and son. Sooo many things we got thru together. I will miss her forever and love her so much… She will always be my MamaMichele…. A true friend and hilarious resource that was always there for anyone who needed anything.
