    I know it will be a challenge moving on without you here day by day. You truly knew the Lord. You truly loved & bonded your family & friends. Although tiny in body you set the prime example of Strength. May our family & friends find the peace to accept your moving up to Heavenly grounds. Gone but not forgotten.

    Michelle, I will love and miss you always. You were like another daughter to me when you were growing up. I am glad you are free of pain and hurt. Not at all glad that we will not see you or hear your voice. Love & Light, Blessed Be!
