One Condolence for Michele H. Smith

  • Ron, Matt, Brandon, Deb, Thom, Bill, Don, Kellie, Jaxon and Charlotte – There are no words that adequately express how we all feel about Michele’s passing. Michele and I were friends forever – both going to Concord, working at ICI for years and job-sharing for 5 years in Purchasing. She was one of the most amazing people I have ever had the privilege to know and love. She was a strong woman who felt extremely dedicated towards her family. Jaxon and Charlotte were the light of her life. She was so very proud of her boys – Matt & Brandon. I will miss her very much. She will always be in my heart.
