Michelle Saxer... Thank you. Tara, Denise, Hatha and Frankie, I am sorry for your loss and all that loved her.
Aunt Shell, your presence lives forever within me with your words of encouragement, guidance, and praise, which have molded me into the man I am today. I know you are smiling your incredible smile as bright as the sun looking over me. I will always "remember the good times" and cherish the memories we shared. XOXO, your handsome boy.
Michelle was a special person with a special smile. Everybody loved Michelle! She is at peace now and in no more pain. She will be dearly missed. Goodbye, my friend.
We have known Michelle for 32 years. She was my best friend ever. We shared our deepest secrets. She was the little sister I never had. I will miss you my dear friend, may you rest in peace. We think you were an angel who was called home early because of your suffering and pain.
You will be in our hearts till we see you again.
Our deepest sympathy to your family and friends.
In loving memory of a wonderful person. You will always live in our hearts and prayers. There's no doubt that Michelle's infectious smile brightened everyone's day. Our hearts go out to your family and friends at this time and in the days ahead.
To the family and friends of Michelle- my deepest sympathy to all. Her smile will never be forgotten. My only regret was not keeping in touch with Michelle over the years after we graduated from Rollins. I thought of her often but lost track as to where she was located. She holds a special place in my heart. RIP Michelle
You will be dearly missed. "meeting again after moments or lifetimes is certain for those who are friends"-- until we meet again <3
It is obvious by the photos and shared memories of all the people here that Michelle had a full life.
I had the privilege of sharing the last several years together with Michelle and we spoke often of our lives and this time of our last days on earth.
She asked that when this time came that I be her voice, so Michelle wanted all of you to know and understand the person she had become.
Michelle was determined to live the life she wanted, and deserved, despite the constant pain. We shared deep intellectual and philosophical conversations,
plus a Lot Of laughter.
She was beginning to write her " Bucket List " and had started checking things off of it like the horseback riding. Traveling was one of her passions and so
our bags were almost always packed. As she got older, I assure you camping was not her preffered type of vacation. A TV and jacuzzi tub in the hotel bedroom
became her standard.Many a time she would just start laughing and state that her Mom would never believe how spoiled she was.
One of her greatest joys was gardening. With a lot of determination and sweat she created a private outdoor oasis and would smile as she walked through her
gardens watching the results of all of her efforts.
Michelle surrounded herself with others who lifterd her up with positive energy and calmness. She was on a spiritual journey and had realized that we are
" spiritual beings having a Human experience". She was not defined by her past any longer. Michelle knew Gods purpose for her. He placed Michelle on this
earth to be a blessing to others in so many ways. There was not one person who interacted with Michelle that didn't walk away feeling better about their
lives or situation.
She would not want you to be angry with God for bringing her home so early in her life. She knew Him as a loving, compassionate Lord. Her pain
was increasing, the doctor's had exhausted all options and her quality of life was being impacted.
I can attest that Michelle was treated with respect, patience and unconditional love by me, family and our friends. Each day was filled with fun, laughter and
and the excitement of living life in the present. Our evenings were spent playing with Olivia and hours of discussing what we were thinking and feeling about
life and the days events. We were best friends who enjoyed life together, the good, the bad and the joys.
There are no words to express the loss and grief of loosing the gift of her pressence in my life.
It was sad to hear about Michelle's death. Our families enjoyed great memories from years past that I won't forget. She was a intelligent sweet person who will be missed by all who knew her.
I was saddened to hear of Michelle's death.
Although we had met a few short years ago,
she had become an amazing friend. It was a joy
to have her join the many lunches and outings,
We enjoyed many conversations about her new
life and enthusiasm for her future. I hope Michelle's
family and many friends can take solace in her
happiness with life.
May she rest in peace. Romans 15:33
RIP Michelle. I will miss our conversations we had at the shop. I'm was very saddened to hear of your untimely death. it seems like you were just at my store and you were telling me you were getting a procedure done. Heaven has another angel. RIP my friend!! To Michelle's family my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Michelle, it really wasn't that long ago that I first met you, but you became an instant friend. You showed so much love and genuine caring to everyone...even when you were facing your own challenges in this life. Your smile will always be remembered, and your light will never fade in our hearts.
I can hardly think back to a time when Michelle wasn't a part of my life. She was a true friend; authentic and honest in every respect. Everyone she met liked her immediately and people of every age and every walk of life related to her. She did alot of good in this world and made each one of us better for knowing her.
It was with great sorrow that I found out about your passing. You were such a wonderful example to so many people, and always smiling while you were doing what you did. I cannot think of Halloween without remembering you out there working your butt off to keep that Hayride going. It meant so much to my kids to get to work there all those years, and you and your ability to work with all the kids out there is something I am still amazed by to this day.
To the family all I can say is thank you for sharing her with all of us, she will be greatly missed by anyone and everyone that got to meet her.
Michelle was a special person who lived in my heart
I knew her for only a brief time but she immediately became part of our family.
She first came into my life as a companion to my mother, Lisa's grandmother. I would thank God for her every day.
When I relocated to Melbourne. Michelle became a daughter and companion to me. She brought happiness and joy to my life.
Michelle and I shared two areas of who we are that were so intertwined it was uncanny:
One area was our love for all animals, dogs were our first love. There
are some people that would say we we spoiled our babies to a fault. If
you know Olivia you know that it is true.
Our second commonality was our deep fear of Big Harry Spiders. We
would always say (not joking) that there better be a third person with us if
we ever encountered one to call 911.
I am mourning her not being here. She was a second daughter to me.
I am celebrating who Michelle really had become. She had found peace, happiness and contentment.
Let us remember she is resting in peace with no pain in the arms of our loving Lord.
Michelle was my second Mommy. She did everything she could to make our lifes better, and she did.
Our wedding was special because of her imput and many hours of planning, love, support and putting up with me. BUT she flat out said no when i asked her to model my bridesmades dress. HA !!
Our greatest wedding gift was when she and mom cleaned our house when we were on out honeymoon Disney cruise. It was amazing and we were so surprised.
We loved her to the depths of our hearts. She is our family and showed it every day. She always knew what to say to make everything better when the days were tough. She made our world better and full of love.
I know she is still watching over us and will always be there.
We will miss our second mom beyond what words can express.
Im very sorry for your loss Denise.My condolances and thoughts to you and your family.
I was shocked and saddened to hear of Michelle's passing... I haven't seen her in recent years as I relocated to NY but I will never forget her beautiful smile, her charming ways, and the friendship that we shared. She was truly a treasure to everyone she came in contact with. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends... Until we meet again my friend, May you rest in peace with our Lord...
Your life was short but your memory will live within us forever. We will always remember your smile & laughter and especially that quirky personality. Fly high girl for now it is your time to shine. You will be sadly missed by all.
Denise, Frankie and Family we are so very sorry to hear of your sisters passing. you all will be in our thoughts and prayers. Take confort in knowing she is with god and you all have a gardian angel watching over you all.
Randy and Cindy Snyder
Will always remember the fun times we had working with the City doing the hayrides, road rallies, etc. Your smile will be missed by all.
Will miss your smiling face coming into the office. You were a great person. My sympathy to your family.
Denise and family, we send our deepest symphaties. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Kay Hall and family
Please accept my deepest sympathies.
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel about Michelle's death. We will never forget her and have fond memories of her. Our hearts go out to all the family in this time of sorrow.
I met Michelle when I worked with her at Hacienda Girls Ranch. She was so warm and funny, I loved the way she treated the girls and wished I was more like her. My heart goes out to her family, I know she will be missed.
Thinking about you Michelle, Thank you for being a great friend! You brought laughter, wisdom, kindness, adventure, and a great smile to us all! I will always hold on to our memories! Peace my friend! God bless Tara, Jennifer, Kaden, Denise, Heather & Frankie-
Michelle you will always hold a special place in my heart and I am so blessed for having you as my friend . May you rest in peace and soar high with all the beautiful angels ?
Hay Sis just heard, you beat me to the house of no pain. After 35 years I feel robbed but that is how life works.
I will treasure all the times we have and there were some really crazy ones.
I still remember when you came to S.F and I showed you those old pictures that I took of you back in the 70's.
Michelle/Sis you will always hold a special place in my heart and will always love you as a sister.

Sir Rabindranath Tagore
Michelle's legacy will live on forever in that beautiful smile and loving heart. Years ago when we worked together at Hacienda Girls Ranch ..Michelle always had the right words to say to each girl and the perfect moment. Sometimes she'd just simply hug them. Her smile was the Love of God and the Light of God. Namaste.
To those she loved so dearly...
At a time in my life, when I was vulnerable & alone, you believed in me. I looked up to you. You restored my belief in adults. I knew the days that you were there with me that it was going to be a good day. I am so sorry to learn of your untimely death. The world is a little less brighter without your smile.
For almost 30 years, I was given a gift that I will always be grateful for - the friendship of Michelle Saxer.
It's a sad consolation that she will live on in the memories of everyone who loved her - and she will in mine.
My deepest condolences go out to Denise and her family.
Michelle, I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I will think of you in silence, and often speak your name. All we have are memories now and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part. God has you in his arms now and we have you in our hearts.
My heart goes out to Michelle's family and family of friends. Denise, Frankie, Heather...you are in my prayers.
Michelle was a very good friend and a very special person to me. I will always cherish the memories that we had. God bless you Michelle.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all who loved Michelle. Her wonderful smile and infectious laugh will always be in our hearts.
Michelle, You brought so much joy to us, thank you for being a part of my family. Your joy enriched our lifes so very much we will never be the same without you Becky
Michelle sat next to me when we were at the Melting Pot after work a couple weeks ago. I wasn't familiar with her at all, but she was so friendly and cute, we hit it off right away. I could tell she was a very special woman.
My thoughts are with you and your family. I remember Michelle being my first friend in Florida and then invited in to join the family she seemed to be the head of. She was always the mentor, the counselor the boss sometimes and always a sister almost immediately. One may wonder did I matter or make a difference in this life, well Michelle did to so many of us. I can't imagine life without hr putting a hand into the way it shaped, it is that big. Michelle will always be present with us as she is part of us. Seeing her recntly in San Fransisco was great and to see the sparkle in her eyes makes you want to root for her. She hd unfinished business and no doubt will be missed as she was taken too soon. The message I would hear her say is to not leave anything unfinished. Do your best and really enjoy life it is really too short. For Michelle, no holding back, no wondering if I will follow dreams left untouched. We will miss you forever and not take life for granted. Love and miss you all and thinking about your family in this tough time. Peace Sister. Love Julie, Carrie, Evan and Nicholas Albert.
To all who loved Michelle, my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
To Denise, Frankie & Heather,
I am so sad about the loss of your sister and aunt. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
We will forever be thankful for all the beautiful Easter mornings our families shared together. These memories and love shared will continue on in all of us and Michelle for eternity. We love you all and we are so sorry for your loss.
I will never forget you or the times we have shared,
The laughter we shared in happy times and tears in sad ones, will all be tucked away in my heart behind a door marked "Memories of You."
On quiet days of remembrance, I will remove these thoughts one by one, and I will think of you with a happy sadness in my soul. Though the good Lord had a greater plan for you, your friendship will live in me forever. I will not say good-bye but only embrace the thought of one day seeing you and sharing your life again.
God be with all those who loved you and will truly miss you. May you be free of all pain my friend until we meet again.
I will miss Michelle every day...she was my advisor, biggest cheerleader, and most importantly my best friend. My prayers are with us all as we remember her.
Words cannnot express the sorrow I feel over Michelle leaving this world far too soon. I will always remember her wise counsel and beautiful smile. My prayers are with her family and everyone who loved and misses her.
My sincerest condolences. Michelle, may you look down upon your family and warm their hearts and souls during this very difficult time. May your family find peace in knowing we will, one day, all be together again.
"There are things waiting for you, all you have to do is go for them! Take the risks, because sometimes those are the truest blessing of all. Don't believe in mistakes, because its all a learning experience, but mostly, enjoy your life and the adventures and have fun!"....... Aunt Shell, you always had a way with words and I cannot thank you enough for giving me the strength and knowledge that you shared with me through the years. You will always be apart of me, and feel so blessed to have had such an amazing person as my aunt.
Michelle will definitely be missed. I knew her most of my life and she was always a pleasure to be around. I will never forget doing the Haunted Hayrides at Wickham Park! Denise, Heather, and the rest of the family - you are all in my prayers. Love you all ?
My thoughts and prayers go out to all who have known and loved Michelle. She was a wonderful person and will be missed dearly.
Your pain is gone so you can Rest in Peace Michelle. You are now in God's hands.
God's blessings upon the Family and all of her friends.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. The Lord has brought another of His children home. We will miss her for the time being ultimately being reunited with her and others soon.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
Michelle, God took you from us too soon plain and simple. But, as we all know he's in control and he needed you. I am so thankful I got to see you at the wedding and how good you looked!! I wish we could have had more time together "as a family". We will miss you so very, very much. My heart will be heavy for a long time!!
Michelle, I can't seem to find the words to express the sorrow I've felt since you have passed. But, I will remember your smile and how it would light up the darkest day. I will remember your laugh and how hearing it would make me laugh. I will remember all our many adventures and so many fun times. I will miss you more than one could know, my sweet "Buddy." I'll keep you forever in my heart and wait to see your face again, some sweet day.
So sorry you had to leave us so soon. I will always remember our conversations over coffee. My thoughts and prayers are with your friends and family.
