    I was sorry to hear of Michelle’s passing. I met her briefly before Christmas and spoke with her, as
    she left she asked me to keep her in my prayers and I did. Michelle and I were not close friends, but did have ties to our work together when Old Bridge Estates was new and we were new homeowners there. Michelle and Clancy helped us as homeowners in this new community.
    It was always nice to greet her as she campaigned with her Large Straw Hat, knocking on doors, with her sweet smile.
    Blessings to Clancy and the family
