I worked with Michele at Forestville. I just saw her in June as she was getting summer school information. We talked about good times and challenges at work. Michele handled the challenges with kindness and grace. She was a joy to work with. Everyone knew that she loved Allison very much as her eyes would light up as she talked about how proud she was of Allison. I pray for your family.

Please know that we will always remember her not only for being a great teacher but a wonderful human being.

Allison and family,

I knew Michelle when she was a Realtor at Fonville Morisey. She helped me work on site for over 4 years. Michelle was the most genuine person I ever had the pleasure of knowing. Allison, I paid you to put my brochures together. You would come and keep your Mom company while she worked mostly on Sundays. Michelle would talk about you and I would talk about my daughter. We were both proud Moms with close relationships with our daughters. I came to the service on Wednesday and was overcome by your strength. I pray you will find some peace and will continue to be the light in your Mom's eyes.

I am dumbfounded. Michelle was our neighbor in Florida and there was nothing she would not do for you. Our hearts are breaking.

My husband and I were deeply sorry to hear of Michele's death. We knew her from the gym she attended. Although we only shared small talk Michele always had a beautiful smile and a very uplifting attitude. She will be missed! May she Rest in Peace!

Mrs. Williams taught my granddaughters, Yvonne and Ayanna, in kindergarten at Forrestville Road Elementary School. I always meant to write her and tell her how much I appreciated her. She was an amazing teacher. She taught both of them how to read. Furthermore, she instilled a love of reading. Now in 6th and 7th grades, they are avid readers and they read above grade level. I attribute this to Mrs. Williams. I am so thankful for her. May God grant her the paradise and may He bless you during this difficult time.
