I met Michelle 12 years ago as I called on Wilson county home health. Her smile was infectious as her laughter. Always asking about me and my family. I saw it from a personal side as she helped my dad and mom when they had home health. so caring... As I told you Tuesday, God has you in the palm of his hand right now. Love you my friend.

We had the pleasure of knowing this very special Lady! She always had such a beautiful smile on her face. She was someone that was just as pretty on inside as she was on the outside. We shared many laughs and comments while having our annual yard sale. We now know that there is a special Angel with Our Lord. Our prayers and thoughts go out to Brian , Christie and all family members. May God Always Bless You!

I had the honor and privilege of working with Michelle in home health a number of years ago. She was the strongest of advocates for her patients. She loved them and they loved her! Her smile was contagious! She was a true gift to the nursing profession, her colleagues, and her patients. She will truly be missed!!!
