Jessie Perry on Jan 14, 2011

All the wonderful times and friendship we shared will remain in my heart forever. Laughing until we cried, dance parties in the kitchen, camping trips, brocolli and chicken chedar eggs at the Five Point and my last but most dear memory Michelle tucking me with a snuggy on halloween. My heart aches that she is gone and I pray that god finds juctice for her. She was my friend and I will miss her dearly for the rest of my life.
Michelle may all the love in the universe be there to greet you on your journey, I love you my friend.

Bridget Frolich on Jan 13, 2011

My sincere condolences to Bill, Jeannie, and family. My thoughts are with you at this sad time.

Lara (Smith) Currie on Jan 12, 2011

To my oldest friend. From the first day you knocked on my back door at the tender age of four to the good times in our early 20's, you had been handed many reasons not to smile. But you alway's were the first to smile, share a laugh and be ready for an adventure. It is just wrong that you were taken too soon. I will never forget you, and will keep your memory alive.

David Fike on Jan 11, 2011

Michelle, you will be missed. You had a world of friends who loved you very much, me being one. My prayers go out to you & your family.

Allie on Jan 11, 2011

Rest happily even though it was far too soon, I will miss the way you always had that friendly sweet smile when I saw you.

Scott on Jan 11, 2011

Kitten- You have been called home too soon. You had such wonderful parties at your humble abode and I thank you for smiling and saying hi and bringing me into your life in 1997 to the present day. We had many good times on Potato outings and concerts and also going out to dinner and lunch etc. I am very glad I got to know you and work with you for almost 4 years. I am still in the state of shock that you are no longer here on earth and this morning listened to the Future Blue CD that you gave me in 1998 that kicks off with you saying "These Are The Chronicles of Amber". Awesome..... In closing I just want to say that I will think of you often and your laugh and smile were like no one else! ***FLY HIGH MICHELLE*** You are free..... Scott C

Michelle I will miss your loving smile and the wonderful twinkle in your eye's. I wonder if you recieved Ellie back? I sent her back to you for Christmas. Ellie the elephant was a stuffed animal that Michelle had as a child. She gave it to Bliss, my daughter when she was a small child. I hope you got Ellie and I hope she brought you some comfort.

I am so sad to hear you have left us, you will be missed more than you know. I only wish we had more time together to reconnect and catch up with where our lives have taken us since we last talked. I know you are watching over us all telling us not to worry about you and that you can take care of yourself. You were always such a tough cookie. Lots of love,

Nancy Lewis on Jan 9, 2011

I will remember Michell's smile because she always found a reason to smile, even when life handed her some bad cards. I first met Michelle 20 years ago and we became instant friends. We probably heard 200 bands together and attended dozens of festivals, concerts, and campouts together. She was my pal, a great listener, and sensitive. She was fun and spririted and loved nature, poetry, photography, dressing up, and being surrounded by friends, Michelle's death is tragic and I am heart broken by the thought of her final hours in the apartment she so cherished. My heart goes out to all of her family and friends who were able to share in the joy of knowing her. Love you, sweet little kitten...

Santina on Jan 9, 2011 dear sweet friend. We have had some VERY special times. We shared SO much in such a short time while riding this "sometimes crazy" road of life. Memories I will treasure and never forget. Like You Michelle...I will keep them close to my heart...ALWAYS May you Rest in Peace my dear friend & fellow "spud"...Love You Always Also...sending my sincere condolences to Michelle's family & thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. May God Bless...

Steven Michael Walther on Jan 9, 2011

Hi Michelle! How's Heaven?

pattie carson on Jan 8, 2011

Dear Michelle ,

You are so close to my heart. I have known you since you were a baby. I was best friends with your mom forever. When your mom died, I was heartbroken. Mitch , I promised myself I would try to be her, your mom. You were welcomed into my family because we are all family.. You were in my Campfire group and I tried nurture you, sweet girl. You were always welcome in my home. You attended many Christmases and Thanksgiving days. We had swell times. I know you were getting your life together. No one deserves to leave this world as it happened to you.

PS Mitch remember when we took Abbie to try out for Toto?
I love you very much.

Shelley Hawkins on Jan 8, 2011

My condolences to the family and many friends of Michelle. I was so shocked and sad to hear... Goodbye Kitten.



Susan Schauer on Jan 8, 2011

I was lucky enough to see Michelle at a Halloween Party this past October. We joked at how we both dressed up a like. We had a great conversation & she looked beautiful as ever. She was so talented with her photography & always captured the moment when we were out camping. When my dog Bailee went missing,she made me an awesome collage of him with picture's she had taken over the years. I keep it next to my bed & will always cherish it. I will miss her deeply & my heart goes out to her family at this difficult time. Just know she was loved by many.
