Michelle was my sister in Christ, we first met through Crossroads Church, at our first Church building when she and Rodney lived right next door.
Michelle was very humble and so kind hearted, always willing to help out where ever there was a need. She always had a smile for someone, no matter what she had going on in her own life. I enjoyed being with her in class every Sunday morning. She was always in class bright and early no matter how late she’d worked the night before, she’d be there with her bible and bottle of Coke.
I liked hearing her opinion on the class topic of the week. Her absence will create a void for those of us left here...but to be absent here means to be present with the Lord. Prayers for her husband Rodney and her family.

My heart breaks for the family at the loss of your beautiful Michelle. Michelle and I have been best friends for the past 7 years. I am a better person for having had Michelle in my life. We had many great times together; laughter, tears, prayers and so much more. Although very private, she shared her faith and love for Jesus very boldly. Until we meet again my sister...
I love you.

My condolences to your family. I worked with Michelle at Stanley. We became fast friends. Every night she would stop by the cafe & ask what we were having & she always had something funny to say. I would always make her special desserts & in turn she would buy extra for her friends she ate lunch with. She was a huge help when my dad passed away. If with only a long hug & kind words or just an ear to listen.I'll ALWAYS remember her silly smile & her laugh. She was indeed a special person who will be truly missed.

I first met Michelle about 10 years ago. She started attending Crossroads and was a very faithful member of the Church.
She was in my wife's Small Group class on Sunday morning and Michelle was always the one to come in first and be the last to leave....she was hungry to know more about Jesus!
In the years I have known her, she has definitely matured in her faith. I know the Lord has told her, "Well done, good and faithful servant" and she had received her home in Heaven for all if eternity!
