Was on holdover with Michelle at 33 Sqn in 94. Our paths crossed occasionally and I wish to send my condolences to her family.

Saddened that one so charming and bright should be lost at such an early age. Those who remain, though blessed with quality memories, are all the poorer for her passing. Sincere condolences - RIP

Saddened and shocked

It's always a bit difficult keeping tabs on people when you live on the other side of the world but I was extremely shocked and very saddened to hear about Michelle. We worked together on a couple of projects when I was at Benson and she was a perfect gem of a colleague - she will be sadly missed. My condolences to her family.

Angel Back to the Top for Today!

Just putting this back on the front page for today. Won't be there but will find a quiet place out east to sit and think of Meesh while you are all at the service.........

RIP Michelle.

I first met Michelle when she was a nav student at Finniningley. She was a joy to instruct and really did light up a room with her smile.

My heartfelt condolences to her husband and family.

Memorial Service for Michelle - 20 Nov 10

Dear All,

Although I still have a bit of detail to work on, I am planning a memorial service for Michelle, followed by a charity dinner in her honour - both on 20 Nov 10.

Both events will be here in Grange over Sands. The dinner will be a black tie event, at the Netherwood Hotel, and will raise money primarily for service charities. I have 180 seats to fill, in tables of 10. Tickets will be 60 each.

Grange is not far from the M6, and has a railway station with easy access to the West Coast mainline. There is accomodation at the Netherwood that night, but there are also a lot of other hotels and guesthouses within walking distance of the Netherwood.

We are 15 minutes' drive from Lake Windermere for anyone who wants to make a weekend of it.

The memorial service will probably take place in the parish church, where we held Michelle's funeral - not sure of the format yet, but I would like this to be, as far as possible, a happy and positive event.

If you would like to attend either or both events, please e-mail me on (doesn't let me type e-mail address, but you should be able to make sense of this) - jurdsathotmail.co.uk and please feel free to pass this message on to others who knew Michelle.

The girls and I are fine. We miss Michelle hugely, but are getting on with life.

Thank you for your kindness.

Neil

Reminiscing the tenth anniversary of the Basra Lynx crash, I found myself pondering other Benson colleagues who were taken from us all too early, leading me to this thread and thoughts of Michelle. Somewhat ignorantly, I had no idea that Neil had set-up a charitable trust in Michelle's name. Please take a look Home . There's also a FB page.

The charitable trust is holding a ball again this year and perhaps we should make the effort (yes I know how pressed we all are through the year but....) anyone fancy a double header and do the Puma reunion Friday then head north for the Michelle Ball on the Saturday?😎.......remember Eatin's Cheatin'

Won't achieve that this year unfortunately, but I will see you at the PR! See what we can achieve next year.
