Dear Michelle:

I just wanted to say thank you. You've given so much to the sport of figure skating and touched the lives of many. Look at this forum. It's because of you that so many people on here share a common bond and have life long memories and friendships.

It's a bittersweet moment. While its sad to see you leave competitive skating, it's also a happy moment to remember all your accomplishments. I wish you the best in your future endeavors.

Michelle you're a class act and I'll always love you.

Thanks again and best of luck.

John
