Today, is a belated Birthday wish to you, Michelle.
The Grabenstein's started celebrating on Thanksgiving day and continued until last night with your 5-year-old, Birthday sharing, Stella Jewel. She had a beautiful Frozen scene Birthday Cake and got showered with Yoga Barbie, Pink convertible Barbie car, and tickets to go to the Nutcracker with Kelsey and Mamma Collette. She is spunky and cute and still a twinkling star in our family. I haven't introduced her to Ricky Springfield yet but she loves to dance around the living room to some pretty hip tunes. You'd be pretty impressed with your namesake. Love to you everyday!!!

I added one of my favorite pics of your namesake in the pictures. You can see her beautiful mischievous blue eyes and her spunky little character, under her curls.
We love you and never miss a chance to tell
Stella about you.
We sure are praying for Mr. Lucas and the success of his Senior Year!
Thanks for watching over us!

Birthday wishes to you dear Angel friend. On your birthday, November 27, at about 8:30 in the morning, Stella Jewell was born in Omaha at Children's Hospital, to Adam and Kelsey Grabenstein. We are so grateful for the love and grace of God as this special little girl is getting stronger.

My Michelle, It's been 6 long years but sometimes it seems like yesterday since you've been gone. We went to visit your parents this summer. Your Dad took us to a Mets game!!! Will always miss you !!! Love, Linda
Posted by Mark Rodriguez on October 10, 2017
Thank you for six years I didn't have coming to me. Rest in Heaven my Angel.

We never know how our lives impact the lives of others. Michelle, if you were sitting with me now, I would tell you that you have not been forgotten. On this day we remember your vitality, the crazy way you swooned over that "Jesse's Girl" singer, Rick Springfield, the way you loved on Lucas, your gorgeous infectious smile, making you a meatless Runza, how you fussed over Kelsey on the wedding day....and so much more. Want you to know that there is a special little girl coming and her name will be Stella Jewell. Doctors say she will be born on your birthday, November 27th. Kelsey and Adam need your Angel light to watch over them through the days that lie ahead. Hope one day we will all be reunited...and then all these WHY questions will be answered as we stand in the presence of God together.

My Michelle, You are still in my thoughts everyday. It seems like these last 5 years have flown by. There are so many special moments that have happened in my life that I wished I could have shared with you. Just know that you'll never be forgotten. Love You and Miss you so much!! Linda

My Michelle,
Another year has come and gone. I can't believe it's been 4 years. I still think you you everyday. I miss you more than words can say. Love you Linda O

Michelle, another dear, dear, friend and mentor of mine died today and most certainly joined you in
Heaven. His name is Pastor Harold Gronstal. He was at Adam and Kelsey's wedding. This was a tough day for Kelsey... She misses you so much. It's hard for her to remember her wedding anniversary, because of the horrible incident that happened to you. May God help us to trust and hold on to the promises that have been made complete for you and for Pastor Harold. We also pray for Mark and that he recovers and gets much stronger
Posted by Mark Rodriguez on October 10, 2015
Thank you for four years I did not have coming to me. I will always fight to keep these lungs okay. My love for you is eternal. You will forever be my Angel and Hero.

Is it possible that you've been gone 3 years. I feel your presence all the time. You are always on my mind. Playing words with friends with your Mom, listening to a song on the radio, drinking margaritas, etc.. But most of all I miss your beautiful smile . Love you Linda.

I am sitting here up in the mountains and I can't believe it's been more than a year since i have seen your smiling face. I spent time with your parents on the anniversary of your passing. This past year has flown by and not one single day has gone by that I haven't thought of you. Your in my prayers always. Miss you so much. Love you Linda

RIP Michelle. You are missed.
Posted by Tami Draper on October 11, 2012
I can't believe it has been a year. My sister in law sent me a beautiful poem that talks about not crying and you will always be with me in my heart. I know you are here in spirit, watching over us. I just miss you so much, you were such a huge part of my life. I think of you often and know that someday we shall see each other again. Rest in peace beautiful lady!
Posted by Mark Rodriguez on October 10, 2012
Michelle my words could never be enough to express my love and gratitude. What you have given me is so much more than a gift. You have given me life, time, the opportunity to dream and do everything I can to make those dreams a reality. You will always be my hero and Angel and I received so much more than lungs from you. I now have a new family and set of friends. I love you eternally.
Posted by JoMarie Fitzpatrick on October 10, 2012
Ahhhh Michelley...1 year....still so sad and senseless. I've always tried to live my life the best I could and your passing has made me work even harder at that, thank you for that and....thanks for all the memories.
I know that you are at peace and one day we will meet again....rest in peace my cousin and friend. I love you..always remembering..<3

You were a really nice lady. I remember you helped me pick out really pretty earrings for my mom at Linda's jewelry party for mothers day. I watched Lucas once and he was a very sweet, fun little boy. You are very missed by everyone.
