I saw this beautiful picture in the newspaper and recognized Michele immediately as she resembles her Mother Jamie. Jamie was my dear pledge sister who I think about so often, and I am so sad to hear Michele has passed. What a beautiful daughter Jamie was blessed with. Jamie, God bless you and your family. Michele McGuire DiGiacomo, August 3, 2013 Michele was a beautiful soul! She would make you laugh to put a smile on your face, and give you a hug when you felt sad. Most of all she was a great person. May you dance with the angels in heaven my dear friend. Rosanna Greene, August 2, 2013 I am so saddened by this loss of my friend. Michele was such a sweet and loving soul, and I feel so blessed to have been friends with her. May God bless and watch over her family, who I know she loved so dearly. My prayers are with them and with all who loved her. I will miss her dearly. amy bines, August 1, 2013
