The couple shared many interests, with traveling being one of the biggest. During their time together, Brad and Michelle explored many places, including Europe and most of the states in the U.S. Their interest in traveling only increased with Aiden and led to their camping as much as possible. Beyond travel, there was also a shared love of sports. They both enjoyed supporting Millard North Athletics, especially Millard North Football.

    My heartfelt condolences to Brad and Aiden and the Morse family. We, who knew Michelle, could not help but to love and admire her. As for me, I have many sweet memories of spending time with her. We turned coffee times into marathon chat fests. She will be sorely missed and sweetly remembered by us all. God bless.

    Our prayers are with Brad, Aiden, and family during this time. Michelle was my hurdle buddy and we began a love for rubber ducks during our time on the NHS Track team. Michelle had a big part in Josh and I getting together as a couple. We will cherish the memories we all had together. Our lives were blessed by Michelle.

    So very sorry for your loss. She was a great and strong woman. We didn’t know her well. But truly a strong woman. Wish we could be there

    What a beautiful service. It really did Michelle justice. Brad, I was so saddened to hear the news of her passing. The only comforting thing is that she is free of any pain. The impact she had on so many people’s lives is her legacy that will live on forever. May God comfort and strengthen you and Aiden as you move forward with your lives. Michelle love will live on in the many hearts that she touched in this life. I only wish that I could have spent more time in her presence to learn and observe more from her as a colleague at Millard North. Lean on that wonderful MN family. Take care and God bless!
