Although we never met Michelle, we have had the pleasure of meeting her son, Drew. He was the best man at our daughter's wedding. We are so terribly sorry for the loss of a wife and mom. She meant a great deal to our son-in-law and she will be surely missed.

Words are not adequate to express how I feel about this loss and to describe this wonderful, extraordinary woman. Michelle made me feel welcome and appreciated my work, as an intern! I fell in love with TECO partly because of her and she welcomed me into the TECO family. I cannot thank her enough.
I have lost a friend and mentor, I can only hope to carry on her spark to the best of my abilities. I will forever be grateful to God for blessing my life by bringing Michelle into it, for providing me a human being that I can aspire to be like.
Rest peacefully my loving friend, you will be missed by all those whose lives you touched in a short time.

I can’t share enough how special Michelle was to me and how much I valued our friendship. When we first met 20 years ago, we became instant friends. Although between work and daily life we didn’t get to see each other as often as we wanted, when we did get together, no time had past and we picked up where we left off. I’ll forever remember the good times we had and how absolutely amazing and beautiful Michelle was inside and out. My thoughts and prayers to the family.

Michelle was beautiful inside and out. I admired her for her intelligence, her quick wit, her caring heart, and her beautiful smile. She touched so many people in her short life. I feel fortunate to have been one of those people.

Rest peacefully my sweet friend
