I was shocked to hear about Michele death. I'm a former colleague of Luis and I know how close knit the family was. I know Luis is strong and he will do all he can to support and comfort his daughters.
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
I will surely miss my sister- in- law, may she rest in peace.
This is an unspeakable tragedy. This one won't easily be gotten over. warm and sincere condolences to Michell's family, and the many friends and colleagues who, like me, adored her. Rest in well-deserved peace.
Michelle was a childhood friend from Clarksburg and we spent many Saturday's delivering eggs together. It saddens me that her life was cut so short. She was truly one of the "good eggs" in my life. Everything she touched was golden and with true compassion. She is an inspiration to all of us. Prayers to her family and daughters.
Michelle and I worked together at various law firms for over 21 years. She may have started out as my boss but she became my friend and I will miss her terribly.
Michelle was a dear friend, mentor and inspiration. She will be missed by so many and she has done so much in her community and for the state and national bar. Our prayers and hearts go out to her husband and daughters. Sabrina and Bill
My love and prayers are with your dear family these days. I grieve Michelle's sudden death as do many in our Dallas community.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Michelle's family. She was a wonderful person and taken from this world was too early. Her smile and enthusiasm were infectious. She will be sorely missed.
After reading several wonderful and touching posts on this tragic event, there's not much maningful for me to add. Michelle touched many lives in the Dallas legal community over the years and beyond, as evidenced by the huge crowd who appeared today to pay their last respects and attend her wonderful memorial service. She simply left us far too young. Anytime someone of her immense presence, guidance and influence leaves this earth, a huge void develops that cannot be replaced. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this terrible time.
We send our deepest sympathies to Elena, Amelia and Luis. Michelle's passion for education and children was inspiring. Her efforts to constantly improve the opportunities for learning enrichment helped so many children. Her sheperding of the 4H Club at St. Monica and so many other activities positively changed hearts and minds for the better. May she rest in peace with our Lord and may He comfort your family in your grief. - Karen, Fred, Tyler & Jacob '09, Nicholas'14

Over the past few months, Michelle and I have been working on one of the many educational projects she has dedicated herself to over her long and outstanding career. She had been approaching the project with her usual energy and dedication. That was just Michelle. When she decided to take on a case for a client or a project for the bar, or for her community, she was all in. Michelle will always have a special place in my heart as a friend and colleague. She will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Luis, their girls, their family and their many friends.
I went all through grade school and high school with Michelle. She was one of a kind. Caring, thoughtful, and such a good person to be around. The class of 1980 SHHS will greatly miss such a beautiful person. Wishing the family, peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. Hugs to the family.
R.I.P. Michelle. You were a great classmate and friend. My prayers are with the Mendz family.
Rest In Peace Michelle. You were a great classmate and friend. You will be missed.
