    Dear Mike, Jessica, Lynn, Jay, Jack, Brooke & Betty: "There are some who bring in a light so great to the world that even after they have gone, the light remains." - unknown Indeed, Michelle was a light to all she encountered and certainly the tie that bound her family together. While our families were in-law relations, Michelle always endeavored to make everyone feel like family and welcomed, and we were blessed just to have even known her. Please know that our family is grieving Michelle's loss with you, and will continue to hold you close in our hearts and our prayers for peace in the comfort of her life and memory. Sincerest condolences and much love to your entire family- Janel, Bobby, Linda, Tim, Chelsy, Nathan, Natalie.
