"I can't believe it's already been a year. My only regret was not being able to get to spend time with you. We always think we'll have more time, or that there will be a "later" when tomorrow is never guaranteed. I know you're watching over us and that you are at peace. We just miss you."

"I love you and miss you so much. You were and still are so important to me. I miss you more and more everyday. Still can't believe you're gone. I can never thank you enough for how much you've done for me. You told me I touched your heart when no one else could and you did the same and so much for me. Thank you for always there for me, for lifting me up and carrying me when I couldn't myself, for making my life so special and sweet,  and being the big sister I never had. I owe you so much. I never would have made it without you.
I love you to the moon and back Chel."

"Michelle was 2 years behind me in high school & always had a beautiful smile and a friendly demeanor when you crossed her path. I was truly saddened to read of her loss. So young and a truly kind soul. Praying for her family to find strength and peace in knowing she is in the prayers of many, as are all of you. God Bless you all as you move forward with this immeasurable loss."

"Oh Chel I still can't believe you're gone. You were such a beautiful person inside and out. I will treasure the memories I have of you, the love and support you gave to everyone and the friendship we shared .

I wish I could have met you in person but the last 4/5 years we were friends distance didn't matter .I so wish I could be there today to celebrate your life but I will raise a glass to you here in England. I'll never forget you Chel . Love and miss you always . Rest in peace now beautiful . I will take comfort knowing that you are free now from any mental pain and suffering . Your friend always Macy1807/ Maria . Until we meet again ❤"
