So sorry to hear about Michelle's passing. I remember her as always being such a happy person. Monica my thoughts are with you and your whole family. I know how it is to lose a loved one. We lost my brother a little over a year ago. I carry him in my heart and know you will do the same with your sister.

As you can tell from reading all of these posts your Mom was an AWESOME person! There was never a dull moment working with your Mom. Whenever I was having a bad day I would go talk to your Mom and I would definitely leave laughing. She was a sweetheart and a true joy to work with. We were definitely blessed having your Mom in our lifes. The one thing that she was truly proud of was her boys, you

I mourn Michelle in two different ways. First, as a part of a big Catholic family in the neighborhood where there were Gardinas and DeTaeyes in many of the same grades.
But more so, sharing many spring and summer days at the ballpark, watching our boys play baseball together. Michelle's fun loving attitude was infectious. Her dry wit will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts are with you - there are lots of happy times to remember.

To the Gardina and Kolar families: my heartfelt sympathy to you on your loss of Michelle. The sad news brings to mind many happy memories of days at St Paul’s, Girl Scouts and Assumption with Michelle. She brought joy to so many and made all feel welcomed; it was an honor to call her a friend. My prayers are with you as you grieve her loss.
