It goes without saying how much Michelle has impacted countless lives...young and old. My heart is so broken, and I wanted to reach out to Michelle's family and share a story. I am a 4th grade teacher at RDE. About 5 years ago, I battled breast cancer. When I came back to school after my treatments were done, Michelle was one of the first to welcome me back, AND expressed SUCH A TRUE interest in checking in with me each time she came to RDE. We would talk about "LIFE" and she would proudly share stories of her family with me. Often times, she was holding the tiny hand of one of our precious students that she loved so much. Later, she shared with me that her sister was battling breast cancer, and would share updates with me. As her sister began to turn the corner, she would share the most amazing inspirational...that her sister would send to her. Michelle LIT UP WITH UTTER JOY when she would share these awesome videos with me...and when she talked about her sister. I do apologize that I do not remember which sister....but I would love to make a connection if she feels led. I feel so connected to "you" through Michelle and I just know that would bring a smile to Michelle.

We may never understand.....but we know that she was a true believer. She led her life just as Jesus would. May her family and friends find some comfort in knowing that she is living the most perfect eternal life with our Savior. There is no doubt in my mind that she is surrounded by all the little children that have gone home before her.

Michelle worked with my son for the last 7 years. She was an amazing PT and her love and passion for her PT kiddos was evident. The impact she had on our family, and I know countless others, will never be forgotten. She will be dearly missed.
