Stephen and boys ,
Our hearts are breaking with the loss of our beautiful Michelle. She was such a great girl, who gave so much of her heart to others. She became such a part of our hearts and family as you guys did too in her special care of our Aunt Ruth and Uncle Woody. She just seemed to belong in this crazy mess we called family. We loved her with our all , we love you guys more than you will ever know and you will ALWAYS be our family. I can not imagine the pain of your loss, but we want you to know that you can ALWAYS count on us to be a part of you forever . We may be miles away, but forever in heart. Michelle was so special to each and everyone who knew her, she gave all she had to make sure others had peace and comfort , we will greatly miss her forever. I can't help but believe that maybe Aunt Ruth and Uncle Woody ( being the stubborn ones they were) might have needed her still. Michelle will certainly gain her wings in Heaven and have so many jewels in her crown for her care and love for others . She certainly will walk those streets of Gold! My mother Bobbie, and brother Robert sends their love to you and the boys . We pray for peace and comfort for you always. We are just a phone call away !! Love you so much !! Kim, Bobbie, Robert and Harley
