Michelle has received an outpouring of love from fans who took the time to send well wishes.
She took to her Twitter account saying, “Thank you to all for the love and prayers. My dad loved getting tweets from those of u who did. The suffering is done. He is at peace.”
Michelle added,” But his life was cut far too short. I am praying that I can use my dads strength and reach out and bring awareness to this awful cancer.”
