I was not able to reconnect with Michelle and she was one of my best friends throughout high school. I remember playing video games together and talking late into the night. She was a wonderful person and will be missed. I regret that I did not get the chance to see her in December.

So sorry to hear of Michelle's passing. I moved to SC in 1991 and only ran into her once in all these years. Although we were not close, I knew she was a sweet person and regret that I didn't try to get to know her better in high school. I'm sure she's in Heaven and feeling better then ever, but I know the family must be struggling. I am certainly praying for you to stay strong and keep the faith.
