Although I am rarely at a loss for words, I struggled to write this note, because it’s very hard to say goodbye to someone who meant so much to me. Michelle was an exceptional person who left an indelible mark on my life - and on so many other lives she touched over her life, which was cut short far too soon. To Brian, Rachel, Lindsay, Sam and Abbie, please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. My heart breaks for each of you and I truly wish it wasn’t this way.

Michelle loved life, music and her friends - and above all else, she loved and cherished her family. She was raised by two wonderful parents and they instilled in her the essence of what it meant to be a kind and loving person. Michelle was especially close with her mother, Toni, and it was always apparent to me that the unbreakable bond they shared was passed down among her daughters as well.

Since I first met Michelle at the University of Florida nearly 30 years ago and in the intervening years that followed, we shared many terrific memories and experienced our share of ups and downs. Over the years that followed post-college, we moved to different parts of the state and started our own families. We watched our kids grow up from a distance and shared laughs and occasional hardships too, but our friendship endured, thanks in no small part to Michelle.

In one of her final messages to me, Michelle asked “Have I told you how glad I am that we are still in touch and friends after all these years? I'm so lucky to have you in my life.”

In truth, Michelle, I was the lucky one. You enriched my life in so many ways and I will always cherish our friendship. I will miss you.

I’m so sorry to learn of Michele’s passing just now. She was one of my kids when I was a camp counselor and USY advisor many years ago at Adath Yeshurun and the JCC. Love and prayers go out to her family. May her memory be a blessing. So sorry for your loss.

As kids, Michelle and I went to school together. She always had a smile and something nice to say. As adults, our paths intersected every so often, and we always enjoyed our run-ins. For a few years, her dad, Mort, and I saw each other often. I felt like I knew each member of the family as he regaled me with so many interesting stories of their lives. A few years ago, Michelle came over my house for a visit. It was clear from our conversation how much love she had and how proud she was of her family and of each of her 4 girls. Michelle, you are gone too soon and will be very missed.

Michelle was one of the warmest people I got to know in 7th grade. At the time of your life when you are finding out who you are as a person she was there to basically hold your hand and walk you through the teenage years because that’s who she always was. Michelle was so mature and someone you just felt good around. I would run into her through the years and no matter what she was going through she always asked if I needed anything… I ran into her going to one of her oncologists and she still asked if she could help me. She was so proud of her girls and I know she will live on in them. Thank you to Michelle laughing at the immature girls who blocked me and telling me that I am way better. But the truth was you were and you will be missed. Love you old friend. NMB 4-ever.

Michelle was the light in the dark. Compassionate, loving, kind, smart...the list is endless. She gave the best advice and spending time with her always left me smiling for days. I still cannot imagine a world without her in it, and I know so many of us who knew and loved her feel that way. She was unforgettable.

My heart goes out to her family. You are her legacy and she could not have been more proud of her beautiful daughters. Her spirit, her life, her love lives on in all of you.

Michelle was the first friendly face I encountered at the school gates as we dropped off our daughters to kindergarten class. I was newly arrived in the US and I was so thankful to the friendship Michelle offered me. Our daughters, now freshman in college have remained very close friends all these years, and our lives have remained intertwined through our daughters. Michelle loved her beautiful family fiercely, and extended that love and care to all those that were in her life. I am privileged to have known such an amazing woman and I will miss Michelle very much. To Brian, Rachel, Lindsay and Abbie, I wish you healing love and strength as you navigate life from here. We are here for you always.

Michelle and I were friends throughout elementary school through high school and into adulthood. She was always sweet and caring and beautiful both inside and out! She will be sorely missed by so many but most of all by her daughters!! They are her legacy and she was so very proud of them!! I just wish this was a mistake!! A nightmare!! Until we meet again my friend xoxo 💔😥

I met Michelle in high school through her best friend, Adriana. From our Taco Bell lunches to our road trip to Gainesville for Gator Growl during senior year, Michelle was always sweet and fun to be around. As adults, we reconnected through social media and communicated frequently. She remained just as kind and genuine throughout her life. My deepest sympathies go out to her husband and three beautiful daughters who truly were the light of her life. The world has lost a beautiful soul, but I am confident that she will continue to watch over and protect those she loved and will live on forever in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know her.
