Dear Family --
Michelle and Dan and Anthony Bassett were friends together in High School and Michelle was a gifted and devoted Karate student with all of us. Jeff Wilson, our leader at the time, was extremely proud of Michelle and her work with this group.
Michelle spent many afternoons and evenings in our home, and we enjoyed her company very much when she was just a young adult. She was soft spoken, polite and very considerate when in our home. A treasure to be with.
That was such a long time ago. It was so gratifying to hear that she finished her schooling and had a professional career. She always had a gentle persistence that served her well.
Our deep condolences to you and your families.

Sincerely, Carol Nichols and family

We will miss Amy very much. She was a wonderful neighbor and I enjoyed how much fun she had with her little dog, Mattie. She always had a smile for us as we saw her from our back yard. Once when Chris and Amy first moved next door, she helped me clean some sweet corn and I knew then I had some wonderful neighbors. I have no doubt Amy (Michelle) will be remembered by our Heavenly Father in the Resurrection- John 6:40.
