  1. My sympathy to all her loved ones: family and friends. Rest in peace Michelle. God Bless.

  2. Dear Christopher and Family, Sorry for your loss and the circumstances.
    Thinking of you all.
    Love Auntie Donna and Uncle George

  3. So sad this happened. Michelle was like a sister to me and often came to our family gatherings. There was always a place at my table for her and she always brought sunshine when she came.
    She had a love for life like nobody else I knew and was always ready to lend a hand if asked.
    She was my go-to girl for all my animal questions and I always got great advice from her for animal husbandry. I don’t know who I will turn to now for for my animal questions.
    I miss her smile and her bright shining eyes. Her eyes shone with such a love for life and for others. She truly had a kindness in her heart that you just don’t run across everyday.
    Goodbye my friend, I miss you a lot.

  4. Dear Pam, Janet, Bonnie, Rose and Awlly, and Michelle’s children and grandchildren. My condolences to all of you. I am so very sorry for your loss of a beautiful mother, grandmother, sister and daughter. She lived her life to the fullest. I loved visiting with her at family occasions and hearing all of her animal stories. She will be very much missed. Rest in peace Michelle,until we meet again.

  5. So so sorry for all that has happened. I only knew Michelle when she was a little girl but wished even then that I could know her as an adult.
    She will be missed daily by her family and friends and we send our condolences to all of them.

  6. My condolences and prayers for Michelle’s family and loved ones. I will miss you dearly my friend.
    Love you forever.

  7. Rest in peace wild cousin <3 , mother, sister, grandma, and daughter. You will be missed by many. So sad that this happened. May peace surround your family and friends as they work through this tragic end to someone who touched so many lives. It sounds like you left a beautiful trail of memories and happiness.

    • She preferred Baba. I know because it was one of the last things she told me, I was one of her direct grandchildren, and I can confirm that all of you people, who say she was a terrific person in every way-Mother, Baba, Caretaker to all those animals, and friend- one hundred and ten percent correct. right now I’m trying to put together a little digital photo album of these people who were especially impactful to me; so if anyone has photos, I would appreciate a donation
      (and I know I’m more than a year late for this but I still felt I should do something)

  8. My condolences to the family and friends of Michelle. From the comments it’s obvious that she was loved by all and will be missed. These days are indeed filled with strife and times are difficult but we can find a way to get through it all. When I’m feeling down I turn to the scriptures for comfort. The words at Revelation 21:4 are very soothing to me. When I read that ” God will wipe away our tears and even death will be no more” it really helped when I was grieving for my Father who passed away. Please take a minute to open your own Bible and read the scriptures , it will help.
