Michelle worked for me as a Manager for Movie Gallery for years. She was the sweetest person I have ever met and a very hard worker. She became my friend instantly and I so enjoyed being around her
She was always upbeat and happy. We laughed a lot and talked even more. I attended her wedding and she worked for me through her pregnancy with Jordan. I always told her she wasy favorite Manager and Best Friend a person could have. May God Comfort your family especially Jordan, Scott and your sweet mother.
