Obituary Condolences

Michele Marie MacNeill 1957 ~ 2007 Our dearest Michele Marie MacNeill was called home April 11, 2007. What words can describe the beloved wife of Martin? The selfless mother of Rachel, Vanessa, Alexis, Damian, Giselle, Elle, Sabrina, and Ada? The cherished daughter of Milton and Helen Somers? The glorious friend of all who knew her? How can words adequately describe one who seemed to us a little above the angels? Her life was dedicated to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her life was dedicated to her family. Her life was dedicated to helping all around her. We know her dedication lives on! Her fight, the only worthy cause...She fights on! We can list in words only a handful of her accomplishments. Her outer beauty and talents so great, yet nothing compared to the beauty of her soul - the Light of Christ, a flaming fire that burned so brightly for all to see. Her accomplishments in fulfilling with all her might, mind, and strength anything and everything she was called to do. Her accomplishments with her magnificent hands, all she touched whether decorating, writing, or playing the violin - she was always creating out of anything she was given, a masterpiece. Her speaking ability, her testimony of the gospel -- she spoke with the whispering of the Spirit -- forever guiding us, her example to all - as the thundering of angels. Where is the wife? Where is the mother? Where is the daughter? Where is the friend? The answer may be found in one of her favorite movies, "Out of Africa" Farah: This land where you are going is far? Karen: Very far. Farah: How can it be now with me and yourself? Karen: Do you remember how it was ... on safari? In the afternoons I would send you ahead to look for a camp ... and you would wait for me. Farah: You can see the fire ... and come to this place. Karen: Well, it will be like that. Only this time I will go ahead and wait for you. Farah: Since it is far, where you are going you must make this fire very big ... so I can find you. Michele has gone and is building a fire for all of us to see. She has prepared the way for us. When the time comes for us, we know we will see her fire! We know, we will see her flames reach through the eternities, her life blazing the night sky! For that day we shall fight on as she has taught us, live as she has shown us, and travel the path where she has paved the way. We love you. We miss you. We will do as you. We will love as you, forgive as you, we will return home with honor as you. In that way showing our true love for the one who proved that following Christ is the only way. Michele's life will be honored at a service at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 14, 2007 at the Manila Stake Center located on the grounds of the Mt. Timpanogos Temple.
