One year ago this week, our friend Michele Moran passed away.

Michele grew up on 16th street between 8th and 9th avenues.

Here’s the tribute from her buddy, Sharon Mastrion-Rutter

My pal, my Patsy has passed away.

She was a pillar of strength, love and beauty.

She was everything to me.  Thank you pal, for all the years and memories we have shared our whole life, you made my world a better place.

You taught me so many things, but the most important was that friends are the family we choose, and we were definitely family.

I love you more than you will ever know and I will miss you everyday of my life.

May you rest in the sweetest peace pal, for I know I will see you again…
