I first met Michele in November 1979 when I began working at the U.S. Department of Energy in Washington, DC. She was always happy and fun and had a beautiful smile. We shared a common work space and usually had lunch together in the cafeteria. Those were great times for all of us. May you Rest in Peace, Michele. Dennis and family, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
