    It is a most beautiful gift when people come across our path to bring joy, fight for others, seek truth, and has a love Israel and the Jewish people. In our day with so much prejudice, discrimination, and opinions, it is a blessing to have known Michelle, a hard working, competent, professional, caring woman, with a soft heart and knowledge of God. May her memory be a blessing and a catalyst for doing good in our world while we still have breath. We participate in your sorrow. “May God comfort you among the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.” Barukh atah Adonai Eloheinu melekh ha’olam, dayan ha-emet Michelle searched for truth….may we also in her memory.

    Our Dear Cousin,
    We wish we had had more time together. You were such a Little Rascal and we will always cherish the fun times we did have. We always think of you and Michael riding horses in Tahoe at the Bonanza Ranch. that is how we will picture you. Sorry we never had the chance to meet Rami as you spoke so lovingly of him. .

  • Kathy Hoyt Posted May 5, 2020 7:00 pm

    Oh, Michelle! I had no idea when I visited with you on April 29th, that you too would be gone so soon, too soon. My love and prayers go out to you, so you may rest in peace. But also gentle and loving hugs to Rami, Nicole and the rest of the many who loved and will miss you.

    Michelle. I cant remember a time in my life when you weren’t there. I was your defacto little sister who annoyed you constantly and who you had to watch and protect. As we grew older, you became my confidant and best friend. You were always the first person i talked to to share good news. You were always the one i turned to in times of hardship and trouble… and you never failed to offer support, guidance and unwavering love. I have talked to you almost everyday my entire life. This gaping hole in my heart and my life will never be filled. I love you and miss you doesnt come close to expressing how i feel. You have had such a profound impact on my life… and the lives of everyone who you have touched. I am so incredibly proud and honored to know and love you. May you rest in peace.

  • Carol & Robert Lamb Posted May 6, 2020 1:56 pm

    Our “Little Binky” such a “Little Rascal”- you were always bigger than life so full of love and mischief. Just thinking of you and all our memories will always bring a smile to our faces.
