    So saddened to hear of Michelle’s passing. I’ve known her since she was with Legal Services, and she came to my Register of Deeds office many times to do business on behalf of her clients. She always tried her best to help her clients, and was a very warm and friendly person. She will be missed!

    Am saddened at Michele’s passing. And my thoughts are with her family at this time of loss and heartache. I pray that God’s gracious comforts may ease their suffering.

    I used to be the mail carrrier that served that part of the town and it encompassed both practices that she was involved in. Michele was a very personable gal, who was always ready with a smile and a witty comment. My deepest sympathies to her children, family, and many friends.

    Stunned doesn’t even begin to describe this news. I knew Michele on a professional level as being a dedicated hard worker who was passionate about the law. On a personal level, I so enjoyed her contagious smile, quick wit, and spitfire attitude. We talked about taking a trip together where two 5’2″ brunettes would take the beaches by storm. I wish we had.

    She will be sadly missed by the community and those who had the pleasure of meeting her. My prayers for strength are with Michele’s family during such a difficult time.

    We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Michele. After working with her at the courthouse for so many years and seeing her bright smile every time, we sure will miss her. May her children, family, and friends cherish all of the great memories of her life.
