My sympathies to your family and friends. Michele was a bright star in   our vision back in the '70's  when we all needed 
somebody to rally around.
Your suffering is now past, go on to your reward.
We are better for being graced with your presence.

I am so glad that we reconnected over the past few years. I watched her go through her battle with such bravery and grace.
I still remember our sleep overs at my house on the back porch. Then Michele began her journey to becoming Miss USA. Everyone was so proud of her.
May she finally be free in Heaven as she joins her Mother Nancy and Sister Colleen.
