Not sure what to say?

I've missed Michelle over the past few years. She was a good friend to me and took me in when I needed it most. We had fun together; she could be such a goof! Some of my fond memories include: philosophical talks, girl power, talking about guys, running out to get Rainblo gum, watching Sex and the City & crying & laughing, yoga (Michelle was the best instructor), Michelle walking around in my high heel clogs that were way too big for her (sometimes using them to reach things that were...

Michelle and I met when we worked at QCS. We initially started going to the gym together, but our relationship grew from gym buddies to good friends. Over the years, we have always remained in contact with each other. Michelle truly is one of the strongest people I know. Her spirit has been so inspiring.

My condelences go to the Dunn family
for the loss of their loved one,Michelle. May God continue to comfort and protect each and every one of you.

I haven't seen Michelle since high school. I first met her at Robious in the 8th grade. I was a new student and she sat beside me in homeroom. She made me feel accepted and we became good friends.
I remember her well. Her smile, love for Billy Idol, and her ability to make me laugh. I am very sorry to hear of this loss.
Prayers of peace and comfort are sent up for her family.
