“Our children aren’t really privy to the local news, but I’m certain that when they went to school yesterday, they heard what happened because of course people are talking about it. Since Friday, we brought in some intervention. Pastor Michael and Shannon came in and they were here with us on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and we are looking at addressing further issues with staff as well; staff needs closure as well. We are tremendously impacts by what happened. And so likewise we need to do some intervention with staff.  She was somebody who greeted us with a hug every day; a lot of warmth. Michelle was a very warm person and that helped our entire Liberty family. She was willing to help with everything; she was never too snobbish to do any chore at Liberty. She would sweep, she would clean; whatever way she could have contributed, she would. On the community level, Michelle contributed a lot as well. There were times her and I would speak and she would say, “Oh I have to take a friend to the doctor.” She contributed likewise to many homes in Ladyville.”
