Several years ago my daughter was one of Michelle's caregivers. We ALL loved and cared for her. She was such a wonderful blessing and always so sweet!! You did a wonderful job raising her to be kind and thoughtful. Years after my daughter, Laura, stopped caring for her I was entering the doors of a store one day and Michelle was coming out with a caregiver. Her mouth flew open and she ran to me with both arms out, proclaiming 'Laura's Mom!! Laura's Mom' It was the sweetest thing ever!! Her aide was shocked and a little alarmed and not sure how to handle the situation but I quickly explained to her that she knew me and assured her I would never hurt Michelle. I was surprised that she remembered me after all those years. Our hearts are saddened for your great loss but we also rejoice that she has entered the gates of heaven where she will be with other loved ones and cared for by angels. God bless and keep you at this difficult time. Can't WAIT to see her again!! She was such a joy!!
