Thank you Gilbert Family for allowing myself and my children to be a part of your family....I’m forever grateful. Angela shared a memory of spending the night with Michele and Brock and she was given a KIZZ T shirt to sleep in...Michele was Stephanie’s God Mother. They were small when we left but we have lots of memories shared with the Gilbert family

Michele was my very best friend at St Anthony Grade School. We played barbies when it rained outside and couldn’t go to recess. She taught me how to braid hair. My family had to move and we lost touch. I did see her years after on a bus in Evansville and it was like we never had to say goodbye. I am so very very sorry. I am praying for comfort and strength for her whole family.

Me and Michelle were classmates at St. Anthony, she was a goog friend and was nice to everyone of us. She always had a pretty smile on her face. I would run into Michelle and she always had that smile. She will be missed. Please except my sincere sympathy from the
Koressel family.
