  7. I spent many hours doing crossword puzzles and having fun with Shorti. Some of my best times were when we catered together. Just saw her a couple of times in her last week which was so very odd as we hadn’t seen each other in awhile. But nothing had changed. She was smiling and laughing and so proud of her family. She will surely be missed. May her memories stay alive in your thoughts and hearts.
    My condolences go out to all of you.
    Maddie and Gene.

  8. Duane and family,
    I’m sorry for your loss! Michelle was very dear friend of my mom’s (Laura Warner). I’m sure mom and her are giggling and chatting about the old times. I’m very thankful for the friendship they shared…Michelle was my moms angel and I would like to think my mom was Michelle’s too. May God be with you all now and always.
