  • So sorry that Michele has passed. We have so many good memories of our time with her — all the yoga classes, the dogs, the girls playing together. She always had a smile on her face and kind words for us and frequently went out of her way to lend a hand. Sending much love in this time of loss. XO

  • So very sorry for your loss…..having a son and daughter in the same grades I spoke to them last night and my son said he’d always remember Michele calling out the batting order at her son’s games and cheering for Aaron and after learning Michele still holds a softball record at her high school my daughter said “Marley is a good athlete just like her mom.” We are very sorry, Donna, Joe & Sofia
