The holidays will not be the same without you, honey. We miss you so much it hurts.
It's October already and I still look to your picture on my desk every morning and wish you were here in person. I thought as time went by it would become easier but it hasn't. Love and miss you always.
We miss you so much, sweetie. We love you.
Love, Carol, Andrea and Linda
DEAR FAMILY, WE ARE SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT MICHELE, WE ARE PRAYING FOR ALL OF YOU
I will forever miss you my dear friend. I look up everytime my door opens hoping to see your face again. You made my 7 years at DCS worth it all. Rest in peace - will always love the memories we had.
Happy Birthday sweetie!
Everyone leaves footprints in your memory, but the ones that leave footprints in your heart are the ones you will truly remember. It was enlightening to hear all the wonderful words that have spoken about you the last few days. A kind, loving, caring, supportive woman had been the consistent theme in your life. Michele, you will be in my heart forever. Rest in Peace
To Michelle's Family:
I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sending my love and prayers to you all during this difficult time. Hugs xoxo
Andrea, So very saddened by the loss of Michelle, truly one of the sweetest people I've ever known. My prayers are with you and the family.
I am so sorry for your loss. I really enjoyed working with Michelle when I was SRO at DeRuyter.
To Michele's family... I remember Michele and Andrea when they were little girls of 6 or 7. They introduced themselves to me one day as i walked home from school and asked if I was Sandy's sister. From that day on, my walk home from high school almost always included meeting the two of them for conversation, questions, and laughs. I have the fondest memories of them both... I am so very sorry for the loss of Michele. You are in my thoughts and prayers...
Eddie, Ryan, Linda, Carol and Andrea - I really do not know the words to convey to you that will bring to you a sense of comfort and peace with your tragic loss. Michele always held a special place in my heart and I will forever remember the oh so loving woman she was! Eddie and Ryan I can tell you that she loved you both so much and was so very proud of the men you have become! I know right now that she is in one of our Lord's hands and He has you all in the other. She forever will remain there in His presence and when the time is right He will set you back down as you continue your life journey here on earth. And He will be there to pick you back up when you need Him most! God Bless you all and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers!
Sending love and Prayers to all of Michele's family. So very sorry for your loss.
So very sorry your loss. Our hearts go out to you all. Know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult and sad time. may God bless you all.
How sad we are to see that Michele is gone. We lived in De Ruyter too and when we sold our house there she really wanted to buy it. Ryan used to come down to us and help Joe with planting things and often stay for lunch. She was a bright out going person and loving mother. She will always be remembered that way by the hearts she touched. She brought smiles to everyone who knew her.
Andrea and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Michele's passing! You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May God hold you all close and help you through this difficult time in your lives.
Michele was one of the sweetest persons that I had the pleasure to have know. Always a smile, a kind word or an unselfish act. I am so glad that I had the chance to reconnect with her over the last few years. She certainly loved her family and was extremely proud of her boys! We talked about them often. Michele will be missed, but there is a sense of comfort knowing that she is in the arms of our heavenly Father! God Bless you Michele and Go Cuse!!!!
Michele was loved so much by her friends in DeRuyter and will be missed in a huge way. We all appreciat the time we knew her. I will miss talking about the teen hangouts in Elmira and laughing about how two young Girls from Elmira found the same small town of DeRuyter and called it home.
On behalf of my sisters and our families I want to thank you all for the heartfelt messages you have sent. We know what a special person Michele was and the loving sons she raised but it warms our hearts at this very difficult time to see how many lives she touched in so many loving ways. That was our Michele !
Thank you so very much.
my sweet friend you will be missed so dearly you have been a great part of mine and my familys lives you have always been there for us you will forever be in our thoiughts and prayers, you will now fly with the angels and guide us from above love you shell
My deepest sympathy and prayers to all of the families touched with this loss. RIP old friend....
My thoughts and prayers go out to friends and family during this trying time..I will miss her.
Andrea and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this very difficult time. I have so many memories from Mt. Zoar St. and always remember Michele's smile and genuine kindness. I pray that you find comfort in knowing she is in a safe place in the comfort of your parent's arms.
Thank you for the memories both old and new. I will treasure them. You were a beautiful friend and I am so blessed to have known you. RIP
May you rest in Peace. An angel you already were!! Until we meet again, your memories will fill my heart! Thoughts & Prayers to the entire family
I hope you know how much you were loved by so many. You were a great person and a friend to all. I miss your smile and laughter. May you rest in peace with your parents, until we meet again.
Michele, my baby sister,
For what I believe Heaven to be, the gates opened wide to greet you. Mom and Daddy were right there with open arms to meet you. I know that now you will be safe and at peace for eternity.You will always be in my heart and thoughts.
I will always love you little one!!
You were a dear friend, always kind and concerned for other people. I truly miss your smile and laughter, may you rest in peace, Michele, with your loving parents. I will not say goodbye, only until we see each other again. Know you are loved..............
An angel has been called home.
You were such a great lady to see at the school everyday. You will be missed by kids and adults all over. I remember having to see you every time I forgot my locker combination and you were always so nice about it.
I did not have the pleasure of knowing Michele long but I have truly enjoyed these last 6 months working with her and I can honestly say work will not be the same without her! She made a huge difference in so many little ways, not just for me but the teachers, and most importantly the students too, and I will always remember her fondly! She will be deeply missed and forever loved by so many! Our deepest sympathy go out to the entire family. ?RIP Michele?
My thoughts and prayers go out sons and family.
You where a wonderful person to everyone. You will be missed and loved by all. Thank you for all you did for me when I was in school and seeing you smiling face. RIP Mrs. Green.
I had the privilege of working with Michele for the past 12 years and having her sons as students. She was Aunt Shell to my son who went to get hugs from her everyday before and after pre-k. I miss her terribly but know she is at peace and is an angel watching over us now.
With all my love and respect I say goodbye.I can not say how much you will be missed by me and so many others.I will see in the future but in the mean time you have fun with my family in heaven.
You will be missed sweetie, but always remembered in our hearts.
Miss you my dear friend, til we see each other again Michele.
She will be missed by all of DeRuyter and DeRuyter School and who else she has touched or helped. She was a great person. my thoughts and prayers go out to her family
In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.
