2 years

It's been 2 years now, and although I was unable to attend the memorial this past weekend Michelle is still very much in my heart. So Michelle, I'm thinking about you and praying that there will be some justice (and peace) soon.

Memories/Letter from Abby

One of my favorite memories of Michelle is during high school when we performed in the Lipsync together. The whole group would practice our dance routine in Michelle’s basement. Most of the girls were cheerleaders, the others at least had coordination; I could barely move to the beat. Never frustrated with my lack of skill (which I can only imagine must have been pretty hard for someone with Michelle’s talent) she worked with me until I was good enough to bring on stage. I think those “extra practices” were held on my behalf.

Words cannot express the sadness that I feel for Michelle’s family and friends that have to go on without her. I have faith that there will be some justice for Michelle, Cassidy & the baby boy that she will always be one with, and all of those who love her and continue to grieve for her.

Michelle, though we have not been close friends for several years, only seeing each other on holidays and communicating through email (I loved receiving updated photos of Cassidy), you are now always in my thoughts and I dream about you often. In my dreams you are as I always remember you, smiling and happy. You and your family will be forever in my heart and prayers.
Love, Abby

Happy Birthday Michelle

A Letter from Barbara

Dear Michelle -

Although we lost touch since high school, I will never forget the good times I shared with you. Cheerleading was like a second family to me, and I was proud and glad to stand next to you almost every day. It was no secret that we had our differences, but I think that we had more laughs than anything else (including being Beavis & Butthead in the Cheerleading Camp skit!). You were taken away too early and it's so obvious what a positive influence you had on everyone in your life. I'm glad I was able to share happy times with you and remember you for the funny, caring person you were.
Love your '95 Co-Captain (and friend),
