Today marks 3 months since you went home to be with The Lord. I miss you deeply and ALWAYS will be your Big Sis....Love to pieces and back while again, Angel B...

It's been FIVE YEARS. Seems like yesterday. Michelle was a daughter, sister, auntie, cousin, best friend, mother, partner and a beautiful person. These reports are the facts, but think about it in a context of someone you care about. When on the road, please be aware, considerate of others, focused and give yourself/others room to react(lots of space between). This horrific accident, and yes it was a accident, might could have been avoided, in many different ways(not pointing fingers). Losing Michelle, on the highway, changed my entire life, but it also changed my perspective of how quickly life can be taken. One mistake, one look away, one text, one instant. Don't let your perspective get changed the way mine was. Let Michelles legacy live on, by helping yourself and others be safe.
