The pain will never ease, for that I know, but my heart also knows that no matter the miles that separated our persons the smiles still came easy when we connected and had a few cherished moments to reminisce of our foolish playful past. Then we would get serious as we spoke of our life of living, loving and learning. They joy in your voice when you spoke of your girls and your Donnie then the excitement when you were so generously blessed with the grandchildren will be forever in my thoughts. The memories will never fade, the friendship will shine from the stars above and when the birds sing to me I know that will be my friend Michelle joining in song with the Angels from the heavens above as you are being welcomed and watching us from your new home to keep an eye on us. Michelle, we accomplished a lot and had a lot of fun along the way. I’d do it all again as long as I knew I would have you by my side as my friend and my oh my I’ll miss you my friend, but I am better for knowing you and having you in my life. Much love and peace to you and the wonderful family you raised. Magnificent job, well done. Love Karen Walker
