I am so very sorry for your loss. I have great memories of your Mom working in the Middle School with the baker. I hope fond memories ease your loss and remember to smile for all you shared. The world is a better place thanks to your Mom

We met Michelle through all our visits to Rainbow Cove and we were crazy about her. Every year we looked forward to our visit and she was one of our favorite people there. When she retired, she would often come back to visit our crowd that were there in August for the NASCAR race; as well she became my Facebook friend. She was an awesome person and we are so sorry for your loss. May wonderful memories help to soften your sorrow and may she rest in peace.
