I am so sorry for your loss, I knew Michelle when I was in First Church of God, and I used to see her at Walmart all the time. She was a very sweet person. Sending love and prayers to all her family. Haydee Phillips and my son David Tinoco, who is in Walmart right now and found out about she was gone.
