    Michelle and I were more than friends , we truly were ‘sisters.’ Our friendship was so special that it was a once in a lifetime occurrence – there will never be another Michelle in my life. I was honored to have been there for her until the end as she valiantly fought this merciless beast we have come to know as COVID. She was and always will be an angel in my life that I loved and have wonderful memories of. May she now rest in eternal peace with our Heavenly Father and the angels in Heaven. You are my best friend and I can now say I have a guardian angel watching over me from heaven. My deepest sympathy to Dianne, John, Carmela, Caprice, Jeremiah, Jourdan and Avah who were so fortunate to have had her love in their lives. How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. Fly high beautiful angel!!!
    You will forever be in my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
    My Deepest Sympathy and Love,
    Michele Torsiello

    God bless you and keep you during this very difficult time…Michelle was one of the sweet blessings to my family…she was one of the many angels that took such good care of my Mother when she was at Wingate in Beacon. I will always remember her for her kind and patient demeanor with my Mom and my Dad. It’s a blessing when you find that kind of care in a nursing home these days. I am so very, very thankful to have known Michelle and I am so very, very sorry your loss! God bless you and keep you and I will be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers πŸ™. Love to you all, Dawna Bowles.

  10. Lourdes Huertas says:

    Wow, I still can’t believe it. Amazing, beautiful and charming co-worker. Her smile just lit up the place. I had the opportunity to work with Michelle on Saturdays. She loved her daughters and grandkids. I was always eager to hear about her ‘diva’. Her ‘diva’ was her oldest granddaughter. Michelle would imitate her ‘Mimi I need to get a new JoJo bow’. She was so proud of this beautiful little girl. Always talked about her handsome and sweet grandson. Of course, she didn’t forget the little ‘diva’. She would tell me how the little one was starting to be like the older granddaughter. I always looked forward to listening to her stories about her grandkids, but the best part were her expressions, her love and her smile!! Always wearing pink. Pink was her color. Pink everything. Summers in her pool!! I will miss you greatly my friend. I will for ever cherish you beautiful smile!! You will be greatly miss. Rest in Peace until we see each other again.
