Michelle was like a mom to me when I was in younger. She was an amazing person, and I'm grateful that I had the chance to know her. My heart goes out to her entire family; she will be missed.

My condolences to your family. I was at her home when she hosted the surprise baby shower for my daughter, Julie Novak. She picked me up at the train station and I spent the night before the shower at her house.

Thanks for her thoughtfulness.
