I am so sorry to hear of Michelle's passing. She was in my sister's grade in Willard. My prayers are with her family.

Please accept my condolences for the Nestor and Foos families. I got to meet Michelle at last spring's tennis banquet and it was obvious she was pleased with her boys' participation with the tennis program. Again, I am sorry for your loss.

I will always cherish the times we had together growing up as children. And will always hold close the time we spent as adults comparing notes and as of late having her in my Bible Study. Michelle was a kind and loving person with an infectious smile and laughter. I have no doubt by her expressions of her faith, she is where we all want to be!! May God grant peace, understanding and comfort to all that have experienced this loss here on earth.

Mr. & Mrs. Don Foos, Katie, Nathan & Sean.
I was blessed to work with Michelle at KCH for 5 years. Wow. Michelle always put a smile on my face! During that time we laughed, cried and drudged through many long crazy nights at the hospital. What I remember most was her laughter and her compassion. This was a rough period in time for both of us. When we would have extra time we talked and she always talked about you children and mom and dad. She had the normal worries that a mother has for her children and the stories about mom and dad and the traveling trips with the whole family she would just laugh telling the stories. Even though I have never met all of you I feel like I know you. It was clear though that her family was her world! I also spent time with her outside of work. Michelle always, always had this beautiful smile, that enchanting light in her eyes and that laugh that just made you smile inside. This is how I see her when ever I think about her. This is how I see her now. I know Michelle had a great faith inside her we often talked about this too. So I have know doubt that she is in a beautiful place now with no heart aches or pain. That gives me once again the picture of her face with that smile those eyes and her laugh. I was blessed to spend a short time with her! I will pray that the Lord will bring healing for all of your hearts and bring you that peace inside that you will have for a lifetime when you think of her that just warms you inside and let’s you feel the love she had for all of you and that will bring her beautiful smile to your face at those moments forever.

We are saddened to hear of Michelle's passing. Michelle was my clarinet partner in band many years ago when we were in junior high school. We shared lots of giggles together. I remember her as always having such a kind soul. I'm so sad that I never realized that it was Michelle walking down our road with Don, and that I never took the opportunity to say hi to her. Prayers that the Good Lord brings comfort to the family during this difficult time.
