For example, when I was at UCCU depositing the checks this afternoon a woman I have never met came up to me with as I was leaving and gave me a hug and said she was sorry about my loss. She said she was at a Young Single Adult activity and they showed Michalla's 'I am a Mormon' video and ate Alisha's cupcakes (to support the donations). She wanted to tell me how much Michalla's life touched and influenced people for good.
It made me feel so warm inside. While it is hard to think about Michalla several times a day, it is also very healing to know that she didn't suffer in vain and that she touched so many people.
Thank you for the texts and messages of concern on Michalla's birthday. Thanks to family and friends, it was a hard but very good day. (Pictures coming later) It was nice to celebrate Michalla's life in happiness and smiles.
Love to you all.

Here are some birthday pictures of Michalla over the last few years. Michalla LOVED her birthdays. It was her favorite day of the year. I spent a lot of the day crying yesterday and cried myself to sleep last night ...BUT today I am determined to celebrate! The sun is shining and it is going to be a good day! The Spanish Exchange Student teacher just showed up at the door with a card from David and Adrian and family in Spain. What a nice birthday Surprise. We are having cake and ice cream and Mexican food (of course). Megan is coming down and friends are coming over to celebrate! Happy Birthday Michalla. We love you.
Michalla hated us singing happy birthday to her.
