Michele had a strong, positive, loving, free spirit. She was a kind, gentle soul with the fight and heart of a warrior. She was the type of person that you could count on no matter the situation. She will be forever missed by all those that knew her.
As you think of Michele, try not to mourn her death. Instead, celebrate her life and cherish the good times and memories that you shared. We are all blessed for having known her. #ShePersisted
