In Loving Memory

**This is a writing. It is not real.**

How do you describe the life of Michelle?  She was born on May 2, 1970 at 8:30 am.  Being true to her stubborn nature, she was born 1 week after the date she was due.  She was going to come out when she decided it was time.  As a young child, her family always described her as a psychological challenge.  Her sister, Lisa, often recounted the fact that she was told two things when Michelle was born.  The first was that a child’s personality was fully developed by age 5 and the 2nd was that Lisa was going to play a big role in raising Michelle. Lisa loved to share that when Michelle turned 5, she need she had really screwed up.

Michelle was a very sensitive child and would cry the moment any adult would show any disappointment in her.  She thrived on the words of affirmation that she received from those around her.  

Michelle was a dedicated student and was loved by her teachers.  She took pride in her school work and received great grades.  One thing that she did struggle with during school is the fact that she would often doze off during various classes.  In addition to that, her mom and dad would find her sleeping in a variety of odd places.  She could sometimes be found sleeping against the door frame of her closet while getting ready for school, sleeping flopped over her own legs while sitting cross-legged, and even asleep on the toilet.  

In the summer of 1993, Michelle married her high-school sweetheart.  They were married for 23 years and had 3 beautiful children.  

At the time of Michelle’s passing, she was best known for her part in the multi-million dollar company of Sidetracked Sisters, the business she started with her sister, mother, and aunt.  They then expanded the business into Sidetracked Legacies, which encouraged others to join them in writing down their legacies for future generations.  In addition to those business ventures, she was also the Robin to her sister’s Batman and assisted Lisa in her wildly successful life coaching business.  

When Michelle wasn’t touring the world with Lisa, she most loved spending time with her family.  She is survived by her three children, Bradley, Nathan, and Jessica, and her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

    • That is so sweet of you Mary Jo. We are happy to report that Michelle is not actually dead. Our topic for the week had been to write our own obituaries.
