Not sure what to say?

My Dearest Michelle,
I was surprised when told you were called home to God so soon. I love you and will cherish our visits especially at holidays. Thank God for Sandra, your sister, for seeing you through this life. Her sacrifices and love helped to comfort you!
God Love You,
Aunt Margaret Kraus

Sandy- I haven't seen or heard of you or your sister in years, but just heard of her passing today ( Saturday). I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Michelle well from school years, with her walking home with me on occasion-she was a very sweet person. I do, believe it or not do occasionally think of you both. Bob Gardiner

Jackie, Sandy and all the family as well as her extended family at Heritage Christian and the group home, we were so sorry to hear of Michelle's passing. She was an amazing woman who overcame so much, this world was not good enough or big enough for all she had to offer. I missed working with her and going for Tim Horton's decaf with splenda! and Christmas shopping :) she is at peace and rest with our Lord Jesus, and your Mom and Dad. Love and prayers to you, BJ and Amber Stasio (former...

Sandy, I know how much Michelle meant to you and your family, your Christmas parties and visits meant so much to both of you...you were her angel and her greatest fan...you were the best friend she had and you took such great care of her and told us such wonderful stories about her, you, I know, will always keep her close to your heart...I wish you and your family well, Mary B. (from work)

None of us had to carry the burdens that Michelle had to carry. She had grown accustomed to pain and complications. Yet through it all she lived to talk about about her family and how happy she was to visit them, or even to talk with them on the phone.
The Lord has shown HIS mercy on her and brought her to HIM. She no longer is burdens with a life she had, but gets to have joy in the presence of the Lord. I think she is enjoying running around full of life and no burdens, and wouldn't...

Words cannot express the whole in my heart that is there because Michelle is gone. She has been such an important and special part of my life. She was not only my big sister, Michelle was my best friend. I will miss her laughter and her smile. Knowing that she is in the loving arms of our precious Lord and together with our parents, gives me such confort and joy throught this great sorrow. Remember absent from the body, present with the Lord. We will be together again someday soon.

I was sad to hear of the passing of Michelle I keep her and all of our childhood memories close to my heart. You all took such good care of her. We may be miles away but those memories are like yesterday. I wish I could be with you all to share in this loss. I will keep you all in my prayers. Thanks for the good memories. Love you all your cuz Lisa Riedel (Hepler)

Mr. and Mrs. Burke, Scott, Rob, Paul and families & the entire Burke family: I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Michelle. She was such a wonderful person with a loving heart. I always enjoyed our chats and her inquisitive nature. While I haven't seen her in years, I think of her often and smile. Thinking of you all during this difficult time. Love, Kristi

I met Michelle about five years ago, when she lived on Linwood and I was still in Buffalo. She was one of the few people I let call me “Ari” because she said it with such a smile. Michelle had a great sense of humor, and whenever she would tease me, she would follow up with an amazing hug. I keep letters from loved ones in a beautiful jewelry box she made me for my birthday; she was so thoughtful and giving. I will cherish the memories of accompanying her to a family reunion in Lake...
