  3. Maraiah, Marissa, and Noah,

    Michelle and I were such good friends during our school years, and while distance and time pulled us apart, I was blessed to be able to reconnect with her these past few years. Michelle loved her kids and grandchildren fiercely. I was blessed to call her friend. I cannot begin to convey how much I will miss her, but I know that her last breath here was her first in Heaven because I remember when she was saved. I will continue to pray for you all.
