I am forever grateful for Michelle and her husband comforting my mother a few months back. The kindness and caring she showed my mom until I could arrive will never be forgotten. I loss my mom on February 23rd of this year. Thank you Michelle for your kindness. You are an angel.
We will all miss you.
Knowing Michelle as a classmate most of my school years, she was always a kind, caring, smart, and full of life person. She hooked up with a great husband, and had a wonderful family. Got to see them during the softball years, but most recently at the easter egg hunt at Mertztown Gun Club 2017, and she was the same girl I knew in school, could not tell she was fighting cancer. That is the way we want to remember her. Our sincere condolences to Randy and the whole family for this very sad loss. We are sure she is in Gods heaven, looking down, hoping her family continues to live life to the fullest, until they meet again.
