Michelle was one of my closest High School friends. Always a smile on her face, the one that kept us laughing.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Michelle worked in my classroom last year. She was a great help to me and the students. She was so patient and worked so hard. We had a great time working together. There was never a dull moment in that room. She will be missed.

So sorry to hear about Michelle. I used to live right across the road and ride the same bus. She and I shared rides to Kings Island when we worked there. She worked in the potato works and always smelled like french fries! She had a perpetual smile on her face. She will be missed! What a good lady!
