So sad to hear the new about Michelle. I would often come home late at night, and if there was time, Michelli and I would chat about software, the net, the challenge of keeping up with tech, which seemed to be accelerating away from me. Michelli seemed to be keeping up to date and non-stressed with the whole shebang. She always had a smile and a wave. I miss seeing her. Sympathy to all her family and friends.

Mel, I can't believe you are gone. All the years we've known each other, growing up in the neighborhood, CCD classes, hanging out at the football games...will forever be treasured. You had the biggest heart and were always a dear friend. I'm so sad you had to go. Fly high my friend! God speed!

Please except my deepest sympathies to you and your family. As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

I will miss you Michelle. We had such a good time in high school. The laughs, the jokes, the smiles. It was such a treat seeing you at the reunion a few years back. Singing "Get Down On It" by Kool & The Gang in homeroom class will never be forgotten! Goodbye....
