I live outside Jamaica and Miss Chin as I called her served me with distinction. I could call or email any time and would a prompt response. I was taken aback when I sent you an email the other day without getting a response, only to learn on your untimely passing. I want to extend my condolences to friends, family and well wishers. May your soul rest in peace.

Michelle, you were truly a pleasure to work with... always so pleasant and bubbly. You will be missed. RIP Michell.

It is very difficult to say farewell to someone so young, so vibrant, one that was so full of life. I will always remember your radiant smile and your pleasant personality.

The industry has lost a true treasure. You will be greatly missed.

Rest in peace Michelle.

To say I will miss you does no justice to how i feel, no amount of tears can express the pain I am feeling by losing you. Just want to say thanks for the privilege and honor of sharing a lifetime with you. There are no goodbyes, you will forever be in my heart and memories.  S.I.P Mich

Mich, Michy boo, Chin....I am still coming to grips with the fact that you are no longer here with us.  It's so hard to say good bye, so I wish you eternal peace.

I'll Be Waiting for You
By Kelly Roper

Although your heart may be broken,
There's no need to weep for me.
I'm in a wonderful place now,
Where I'm happy and so carefree.

I had to go, but I've left behind
Good memories to comfort you.
Concentrate on the best times we had,
And try not to feel so blue.

For one day we'll be together again,
To laugh and sing and play.
You'll be so glad to see me again,
It will seem I was gone just one day.

So try to lift up your heads now,
And dare to set grief aside,
Because I'll be waiting here for you,
To welcome you to the other side.

Rest in peace Mich.

Michelle, I am still loss for words, your bright smile and positive personality will truly be missed. I my condolences to your family and the entire FFK team.

I am still numb...Michelle your transition was so sudden. I will miss your quiet demeanor and genuine kindness. May you sleep in eternal peace. My deepest condolences to the family and to her fellow FFK team.

It is with deep sadness that I learned of the passing of Ms.Chin.
As a client of FFk I got great customer support from her. My motor vehicles are due for reinsurance around the time of Boys' and Girls' champs and as soon as I enter the customer service department Ms. Chin decked in something purple and I would have great conversations about that great institution despite being surrounded by our arch-rivals chief of whom was her supervisor. I admired her fortis spirit. Sincere condolences to the FFk family, her immediate family, and friends. Rest in peace Ms.Chin a real KC supporter. I will always remember you.  Fortis Forever.

This is so hard. I cant believe this is real. You brought happiness, joy and laughter to all who met you; you will be sadly missed. 
Posted by Marsha Sanderson on June 10, 2021
Words have failed me!. I am still in shock and utter disbelief that Michelle has left us. That ever bubbly personality and laughter is gone forever. May we find comfort in her legacy and strength in her memory. Sleep in perfect peace my dear friend.
Posted by Omar Allwood on June 10, 2021
Michelle, you were taken from us far too soon. I am still processing the reality of you no longer being around. I will definitely miss you and our moment where we would catch up. I pray for strength, resilience, comfort and understanding for your family and friends.
Posted by Dale Wanliss on June 10, 2021
Shock, disbelief were the 2 emotions I felt when I heard. I cannot imagine you without that bright warm smile. You impressed me with the way you cared for your family & your inclusiveness in all things FFK.
You will never be forgotten, Mich....SIP

There are never the right words to say when you lose someone. Mich, you had a personality that made everyone feel special no matter what. Rest well my dear and I pray for your boys and family as they deal with you not being here. Sleep on angel.
Posted by Aisha Olton on June 10, 2021
Michelle your passing was just so sudden and something that hit all of us so hard. It is a difficult thing to express the essence and spirit of an individual in a simple note, but I just want to say, you will be truly missed. Your unwavering commitment to your family was evident in the way that you spoke about your children, especially your youngest son Liam. 

Our hearts and prayers go out to your loved ones, and we hope God gives them the strength to persevere through this difficult time.

Rest well Michelle.

I visited this site several times to give my tribute but wasn't able to put my fingers to the task. 

Michelle, we spoke the week before hearing of your passing about a mutual client of ours, we laughed and your words to me was, ok let us see what insurers will say. I got the information and was penning an email to send to you when just as I was about to click the send button I got the news. I asked several times which Michelle because this could not be for real.

I remember the days I would call and say Mich you have any phone card and your response would be is it for your mom (when she was here) or Kyle because you had those number readily available and as soon as you know who to send to in a minute the credit was sent.

You were always accommodating even when you had a lot on your plate I knew I could depend on you. Mich you will be missed, SIP friend

Michelle, A focused, strong, and happy mother, loved her family and friends and was widely loved and respected. She was a people person who will be missed and cherished.

Sighhh. Where do I start? Michelle Chin aka (to me) likkle bit or 99lb chinese. You were an ardent supporter of KC in Boys' Champs and Brazil in World Cup, two teams I cannot stand and you NEVER missed a chance to tease me and everybody else that wasn't on your side. Di amout a time mi threaten fi squash yu and all yu duh is tease mi even more and as mi mek afta yu, yu tek off like kite. Lol Lol. Yoga classes - ahh bwoy. Anybody who knows me knows that I have a major back problem and in yoga class you found pleasure in walking all over my back to ease my pain. It was always hilarious cause yu up deh a behave like yu deh pan trampoline and ask mi "mi a dweet hot?" but my back always felt better when you were done. During work, no matter how many 'run ins' we had yu still answer anything mi ask and still help if mi ask. Yu never have a clue how fi kip malice. ‍This is how I prefer to and will always remember you, no other way. I'm writing this and I still don't believe that you're no longer in this realm. You left this earth wayyyyyy too soon but I hope the other realm is ready for you and your bright and colourful personality as they're in for a treat. Sleep in Peace Michy Boo❤❤

Michelle, I’m still in disbelief that your gone, even our relationship was just over the phone, your personality was nothing short amazing.

You will not be forgotten.

Rest in peace.

My dearest Michelle, my Michyboo, my best friend of 27 years, my BFF. I miss you so much. My heart is still in pain, still in denial of your passing. Not a week go by throughout the years and we don’t talk. I love you and miss you so much. You are a true definition of a friend, there is none like you, the most humble, patient, kind sweet hearted soul. No one can replace the friendship we had. Although we were miles apart but we were always close to heart. I remember the first day we met in High School we were inseparable since then. Didn’t know the day before your passing would be the last time I would talk to you. We had so many plans for next year when you will be here in the US with me. I once ask God “why”….. but he knows best, I will continue to Pray. Sleep in Peace my Michyboo……I love you, kiss my Godson Tai-Lee.
Posted by Orette Duncan on June 9, 2021
Michelle, still can't believe you are gone. Still here remembering how you would call and demand certain things as if you were my boss. Still seeing your huge eyes pulping out at me and your smile that's just priceless. Will never forget the support at our football matches, even when we were playing your team.

You will forever be in our hearts. So so sad.
Posted by Kay Lee on June 9, 2021
My name is Marcha Lee and Mich as I affectionately called her an I were friends for 27 years so this is my tribute to my beautiful and amazing fren Gone way too soon...

If it was just your smile...
If it was just the way you supported those you love and cared for
If it was just your kindness
If it was just the way you would show up to one of my events and just laugh at me while I was in shock to see u.... but so happy to have you there....
If it was just the way u shared your entire heart with those you love....or a perfect stranger because that was just who you were my sweet angel you are simple phenomenal

Mich if it was just the way you walked into a room and brightened every second with your beautiful personality and energy today maybe would hurt less
But to know you ....our lifes are changed forever by your loss

My beautiful fren...Gone too soon

if I could just have one wish... it would be to tell you I love you every time we spoke.... or hold on to ever moment shared with dear life....

I will love you forever my smiling burst of energy.....you will never leave our hearts....your HCHS sister and friend M
I love u....We love u....Gone too soon

Goodbyes are not forever, Goodbyes are not the end.
It simply means I will miss you until we meet again
Sleep in please Michelle......
Posted by Sheryl Thompson on June 9, 2021
Mich,my humble & patient friend from high school, my heart is literally breaking with your passing. You are a true embodiment the word "supportive"as up the Saturday before your passing you indicated that you wished you could help while I was in the hospital. I'm glad I was able to speak to you the last time I saw you. My condolences to the family. Sleep on Peace Mich.
Posted by Cavel Reid on June 9, 2021
I wish someone could tell me I am dreaming, when I heard the news of your death I was in total shock. God called your name so softly that only you could hear and no-one heard the footsteps of angels drawing near. It broke our hearts to lose you but God knows best. Sleep in Peace Michelle you were loved beyond words
Posted by Ramone Cunningham on June 9, 2021
For all who barely knew her, she will definitely be missed. For those who had her friendship, collectively we can keep her memories alive.
Posted by veronica maymcgregor on June 9, 2021
Michelle.... you were one of those persons who was certainly an asset to FFK. One of those FFK employees who would stay until you are old and gray.... it was not meant to be.
I miss your big smile even when you are under pressure and sometimes when the clients are not so nice. You managed personal lines for my many family members and friends.... They miss your professionalism, your calm, your telephone reminders. They miss you too.
Rest in peace Michelle and God's eternal rest be yours.
Posted by shauna Guest on June 9, 2021
Michelle you meant so much to all of us, you were so special and that's no lie. I've known you from i was working with Advantage General and when i started working at FFK i never know what i got myself into but you guide me daily training and telling me everything i need to know, i called you every second of the day for you to explain things that i did not understand and you always assist me. You were like my mentor and It hurts every bit of me to write this knowing i will never see you again or hear your voice calling me "Shauna girl". You work so hard and also taught me to work harder, sometimes i would get miserable and then you would say "the customer is paying for a service you have to give them the best experience".
I remember when you got sick you told me to drink turmeric and ginger i said you were the one who's sick and needed to get better not me, never knew that would be our last conversation. Missing you everyday but your light remains brighter than ever.
Posted by Camesha Little on June 9, 2021
Michelle personality was like no other. Apart from her cheerful character, she was a very helpful person. Once FFK was hosting or participating in an event, be sure Michelle and I was there. She was very supportive and you could count on her for anything.

I live all the way in St Thomas and Michelle allowed me to stay with and her family to make it easier to attend functions and work (in the latter part). During lunchtime, i would accompany here to the bank, the pharmacy, the supermarket just to name a few. Basically, anywhere you see her, you see me (like bottle and cork). She was more than a co-ingworker but also a very close friend.

When I would reach a road block in my work, I could pick up the phone and call Michelle and ask her how its done. She never frowned or complained. She was always willing to help.

It's still hurts really bad that she's gone but she has left a great legacy and a major impact on the insurance industry. No matter how big our shoes are, it can never fill your shoes.

Sleep in eternal peace Michyboo

Mich, without me asking you were offering my daughter needed literature books when she entered high school, thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. When we had internal classes, even if no one else showed up, I knew you would be there, you maybe missed once, as you said you had a lot of work to get done.... My two words I finish with "Dedicated" and "Thoughtful" that's your imprint on my life... xoxoxo
Posted by Sutania Chin on June 9, 2021
Michelle you were always the organizer, the helper, the person who I called for any little thing. Psst Michelle send me a commission form nuh and you reply ok Suts check your email, and right away my email chime. Our yoga group, our yoga trip our potlucks you were the life of the party. Mich all now I don't come to grips with your passing. I told Abigail carefully and the first thing she asked was how are her Sons :(.
Your Mom, Shawn, Shavoy and Liam and other relatives and friends were blessed to have had you in their lives. The Client's that I passed on to you Michael Cunningham, Jameel Thompson and Michael Ennis are in shock in hearing the news and sends their love and Best Regards to your family. Heaven has another Angel...you will always be in my heart Michelle Sleep well.
Posted by Charlee Everette-Gavin on June 9, 2021
When I remember Michelle, I vividly remember bright colours... No matter what she wore there was always a pop of colour accompanied by a dazzling smile and bubbly personality - I think of her as a bright rainbow; mostly purple, splashes of orange, let’s not forget the pinks and the yellows.

Her kids were her life, always ready to talk about their greatest accomplishments whether Liam is mastering his ABC’s or chatting up his female classmates – I have the voice notes and the pictures to prove it. She was proud to be a mommy and proud to be a member of the FFK family. We did yoga together and from the experience I have many fond memories – most, if not all, were of this little bitty person attempting the most complex of positions/poses and bursting out in laughter when she failed (if she failed which she rarely did) or when she got stuck.

My Michy will always be remembered as the fun-loving person that she was, the little hustler selling bath and body works products, snacks and phonecards – always working, always smiling, always approachable, always helpful, always there – Sleep in Peace Rainbow

Posted by Delaine Stewart on June 9, 2021
Michelle, I remember our times in yoga. You were always so active and full of life. Our conversations, even though few and far in between, were always full of purpose and was always to help someone. I really admired that about you. I still cannot believe that you are with us no more, but I will always remember what a kind and genuine soul you were. You always tried to help, no matter how small it was. Condolences to your family and may your soul sleep in eternal peace.
Posted by Vanessa Harley on June 9, 2021
Sigh...Michelle, you were little in structure but big personality. You were always working and always ready to take part in all the activities the office organised.

Your were also the "phone card lady" I could just say "Michelle, 1, 2 bills digi dey" and in 3 seconds my phone was topped up.


Sorry Liam will have to grow up without his mommy.

But we can still feel your spirit with us
Like a guardian angel.
Thank you for all the times you made me smile and making sure that i was alright and safe
And till it's my time I will try my best to always look out for Liam..
Posted by Karlene Hall on June 9, 2021
Bwoy Mich!!! gonna truly miss you. Your passing seems so soon and too sudden.

You are a one of a kind co-worker. I can always rely on you to send me an email or call me back after discussing a Client; in order to move the matter forward. 

Gone but not forgotten!!! The memory of you will always be in my heart....
Posted by Latoya Walker on June 9, 2021
Michelle, Michy Boo words cant explain how much you are missed. Definetly gone too soon but God knows best. Mich your were the life of the department and every party we've attend from Covenant days to the very end, you dance to every music, you couldn't keep still. Always smiling, bubbly and have a personality to die for.

Mich you are always helpful, caring and is always the first to take new staff member to the lunch room or follow them on the road. Always bragging about Liam and sending us videos, voice notes and pics of him. Am hurt most of all when I realise you wont be around to watch him grow physically, but I know you'll be his guardian angel.

I called you "half-a -vex" because even if you were mad a someone for a minute, soon after you would come running back to them as you dont keep grudge.

SIP Michelle, you'll forever remain in our hearts.
Posted by Kevin Harris on June 9, 2021
Michelle or Chin as we affectionately called was such a bubbly character, always wore a smile on her face and was always so cheerful. She will be sadly missed. Sleep In Peace My Sister...
Posted by Kevin Beckford on June 8, 2021
Always the person to put a smile on your face with your bubbly personality and positive vibes. Still in disbelief and still processing your passing, knowing that I won't be blessed with your presence again.

Will always remember you with that smile on your face and all the laughs that we shared. Definitely gone too soon but will remain in our hearts forever. Rest In Peace Chin.
Posted by Stacy-Ann McKenzie on June 8, 2021
Your life was a blessing and your memory a treasure.
You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.
One thing is for sure, you will be in our hearts forever....soooo sad that you're gone Michyboo
Posted by Sanjay Bailey on June 8, 2021
Michelle forever smiling in all manner of adversity. I can't recall you ever being truly upset even when we had our ups and downs you always looked at the brighter picture in the end. Always energetic and ready to go. Full of vitality and just positive in everything you do. I really can't believe this chapter has ended and you are no longer with us but I can honestly say for me you will be truly missed.
Posted by Sylvester Mitchell on June 7, 2021
Michelle ... (smh in disbelief). Her warm friendly personality stands out even in her absence. She was helpful, knowledgeable and the clients loves her endlessly.

This is indeed a sad moment in time. We all miss you Michelle!!! S.I.P.
Posted by Tammy Woolly on June 4, 2021
Mi parrie (Chiney Gal), I still can't believe you're gone. We've been through so much together, the birth of your kids, loss of family members and my wedding. Saying goodbye to you before leaving Jamaica was supposed be temporary because you were getting ready to come here and we would be together making even more memories.❤
I still play your voice notes just to hear you say Tam.
Thank you for the opportunity to share life with you.
Posted by Yamalia Martin on June 4, 2021
