We the Hattons and Theards ( some now married with new last names ) sojourned a bit of life’s journey with Michelle and learned to love her. We have fond memories of her. We are thankful for her friendship and the many conversations, rather over a meal or simply recounting goals, vacations or this life’s journey. She had an incredible smile, was gifted and an intelligent young lady. She will be missed. I trust her Creator has welcomed her into His Presence. May the peace of the God of all be your comfort and guide.
Love, The Hattons & Theards
