  1. Michele was always awesome to talk to and always offering to help in anyway she could. I had a couple of great conversations with her through the years and while she was President of the Sasche ARC.

    Michele was always energetic in helping encourage people in amateur radio. I met an officer at work who had been encouraged to get involved in amateur radio by the influence of Michele and John.

    Michele, 73, I will miss you!
