I want to offer my sincere condolences to Christopher and the rest of Mrs. Michael’s family. She was a very special lady and a great friend to my Mom, Eleanor Helterbrand. The two of them would visit each day and talk and laugh for an hour or more. After my Mom passed, I would visit Mrs. Michael, I never could never get use to calling her Irene out of respect as I was taught growing up. During our visits we would talk about a number of topics, but her favorites were Christopher and her precious little twin granddaughters. She was a proud grandmother and great-grandmother. I will miss our talks and phone calls. She was loved by so many, including myself.
May you, her family and friends, find comfort in your memories and knowing she is reunited with Mr. Michael, James, and many others.
May God bless you and help you find comfort at the loss of this beautiful lady.
Sincerely,
Connie Gullett
Friend and neighbor
