    I know that there are no words I can say that will lessen the heartbreak you and the other members of MIchele’s family are feeling right now, but I did want you to know I am thinking about you all. May you find comfort in the many memories you have of a treasured daughter, mother and grandmother. Take care.

    I was so sorry to hear of Michele’s passing. While I didn’t know Michelle, I worked with Mrs. Sadie at the NCDOR earlier in my career. Mrs. Sadie was such a wonderful friend and mentor to me. I was just a young department of revenue employee at the time and she showered me goodness! I can’t imagine the wonderful times, mentoring and goodness she imparted to her own daughter. I have no doubt that Michele was a person that will be terribly missed by all that knew her. My prayers are with the family during this most difficult time. May your grief and pain be comforted by your memories and the thoughts and prayers of family, friends and all that knew her and the family,
