We all have heavy hearts from time to time - When a loved one moves on, we need to say goodbye -

I know you would like me to continue on this journey with a positive attitude, strength and happiness and I definitely work on this pretty hard and with God's help I will do it also because I want you to feel proud of me and from heaven send me your thumbs up.

do well in school and was my motivation to push myself to do my best as well. We would constantly procrastinate our assignments and wind up skyping all night together to finish. We bonded over sleepless nights and tired mornings. It was always nice knowing that at 1 am when I couldn't sleep I could txt Michelle and she'd be in the same boat. I looked forward to picking her up in the morning for school, she made days better and brighter. On several occasions while in our classrooms or roaming the campus people would ask, "Are you two sisters?" and it got to a point where we would laugh and say, "we outta be!". Michelle and I had very similar personalities and views on life, our friendship was effortless. Along with school we both worked at Six Flags Magic Mountain together. I looked forward to the shifts where I could go to her ride and say a quick "hey michelley!" and a "see you soon!"
I could be myself with Michelle and I felt she could be herself with me too. The Wednesday before she passed we went on a ice cream date after our class where we caught up on usual topics of boys, school, and life's obstacles. After the ice cream and the conversation we both felt much better and we left off with a hug goodbye. The week went on as normal I texted her a few times asking about an assignment and wishing her a good day at Disneyland. That Saturday I got the news of the car accident she and her co workers had gotten in. And just like that, my best friend was gone. To this day I am frustrated and heartbroken that someone as pure as Michelle could lose their life in such an unnecessary way. I will keep the many memories we shared together with me always. Miss you Michelley.
Love is a miraculous feeling that gives us strength and hope even in the most painful moments. Also patience to way for a sign , maybe a yellow flower growing in your garden that you never seen before or a simple beam streaming through your window cherishing your heart. Definitely love never ends. Finally we understand that loves sometimes involves the sacrifice of letting go so you can open your wings and be free. Daddy Willy and I will keep you so close and deep , filling every day of our lives until we meet again . Farewell my dear angel, tell everyone we said hi, ask God to send us some amazing grace and may we all partake of the tree of life.May we all be quick to forgive and be quick to know God. Daddy and mama love you here to the stars and beyond.-----
Goodbye [In Memory of Michelle Littlefield]

Sarah Kholos I can't sleep knowing that something so tragic has happened. Michelle Littlefield was such a beautiful young woman inside and out. She & her family were like family to me. I will always cherish our memories together at Patriot Martial Arts.
Sending my thoughts & prayers to the family. Michelle's memory & good spirits will live on forever.
Life is so precious; it isn't always fair. "Every hurt is a lesson, and every lesson makes you better."
"I just want to say I knew Michelle in HIGH SCHOOL. There was no one like this beautiful girl. She was so gifted and truly blessed with a pure heart and soul. She is one of the few people I've met in my life with such a loving, kind, pure hearted spirit. She cared about everyone and loved everyone regardless of what they looked like and regardless of there flaws she was always accepting and loving towards each person she has ever met. What a blessing she was to have someone like her in this world, I am so so blessed to have known her and to have spoken with her over the years. I hope one day I see her in heaven, I pray for the family that have to suffer through this tragic time, and to Michelle's parents you gave the world a blessing that they will remember forever. I will forever remember Michelle and she will be in my heart and others hearts forever. Prayers and peace to Michelle's family and friends. My heart and my prayers go out to you. May god bless you. And comfort you and give you peace."
Bradley Rice - Yesterday was a challenging day and it will be challenging in the days ahead. The world lost two incredible individuals yesterday in Brian Lewandowski and Michelle Littlefield and I was privileged to work with them throughout the year last year, and Brian even this year. I have fond memories of both of them that I'll be able to keep with me throughout my life. I pray for the families of both of them as they grieve the loss of their loved ones. I also pray for Tony and Alfonso that they can make it through and for their families as well. You can do it, co-leads! Words can only say so much. It's a reminder that life is short. It is crucial to not let drama get in the way of things, but to bond together and push through like a family, especially Six Flags. I'm here for all of you. If you need to talk, let me know and I'll be glad to. Stay strong everyone. I love you all. Michelle Littlefield ‘ s friend and coworker at Six Flags Magic Mountain Bradley Rice

It is so sad that Michelle Littlefield, probably, no was and is the sweetest girl I had the honor of knowing!! She was actually there for me during some tough times, was my math buddy and was just a joy to be with!! I will miss her, I have and am crying for the fact she had to leave so soon when she had so much more to give to the world! Rip Michelle, you will always be missed and loved!!

My Memories of Michelle
By Rich Triquart - 12 2021
Michelle Littlefield’s eyes lit up from the very first moment I made her acquaintance. It may have been in fourth grade in Mrs. Schall’s class, or was it in 5th grade with Mrs. Espinola? The exact date may have slipped my mind, but I remember those first looks from Michelle Littlefield. It is that look that says, I want you to succeed Mr. Triquart. I believe in you! It is a gift of empowerment, and Michelle had it from the very beginning. I wish I could take more credit on the development of such a special student and human being, but I can’t. Michelle placed her trust in me from the very first moment I walked into the classroom, and spoke so clearly through her actions, “Let’s do this Mr. T!”. Michelle was a very special student, but she was an even better human being who left us far too soon.
It wasn’t until Michelle (or Ms. Littlefield as I called her then) was in 6th grade when she officially became a student of mine. We would continue to see each other in either math or Literature (or both) every day over the next three years (not counting summers). As a result of spending so much time together, I learned a great deal from Michelle and these lessons continue to grow within me today.
Children in middle school are so unique. Each one carries special qualities. Some hide their gifts and put-up defenses and are more reserved in showing their true selves. Insecurities run rampant at the middle school level, but never with Michelle. She put herself out there and put herself in totally vulnerable positions day in and day out by being honest and trusting towards the pursuit of learning and being a good person to her fellow classmates. She didn’t care about the risks. She did not care about standing alone. If many students were messing around and off task, she would be still and patient and give me a look of confidence saying, “You got this Mr. T!”
Michelle had a strong religious compass already engrained, and this made her special. Michelle was strong. No one can stand alone in the pursuit of goodness and not be strong. However, she could get hurt like any young teen. While it did not happen often, it still hurt me when she was down. While Michelle would do her best not to burden me with it, I did my best in those moments to let her know I was in her corner. However, this is my point. Michelle was resilient. If she got hurt, she had this ability to bounce back the next day and bring joy again to the classroom. She never allowed the previous day to affect tomorrow’s core belief in people. This was Michelle.
Academically, Michelle was not perfect. For example, math did not come easy for Michelle particularly in those early years. However, she grew to become a strong math student by the time she left us for high school. I remember at that time, she wanted to be a veterinarian. She loved animals which was no surprise if you knew Michelle. She was so kind to all living things. This helped motivate her, but she also was eager to please. She wanted to do well for her teachers, and this also helped drive her to succeed. When Michelle didn’t get the math grade she desired, she wouldn’t go after the teacher or make excuses. She would get frustrated, but instead she simply worked harder. If memory serves, in 6th grade she missed far too many homework assignments, but she soon turned it around once she understood the class expectations. In 7th and 8th grade I can’t remember her missing a homework assignment. Further, Michelle would come in at lunch time and ask questions. She constantly picked my brain during class time soaking up as much knowledge as I could give her while enjoying every moment of the class.
In literature she was even better. Whether she knew it or not, Michelle had a hungry desire to continuously feed her soul. In Literature Michelle shined! She routinely had her hand signals up in the air to either signal for a comment or an answer, and her eyes lit up and a smile crossed her face when she was called upon. She loved to read and extract meaning from the passages. She loved connecting similar themes from poetry, musical lyrics, short stories, or novels. Themes of love, determination and resiliency, hardship, sadness from loss, or joy in humanity’s victories, excited Michelle. During our daily shared readings which always opened our literature classes, she was always completely tuned in to every word I read to the class. On special days when I got to take the class out for a special activity, Michelle would have as much fun as anyone giving her best to her teammates while practicing exemplary sportsmanship.
While Michelle was not perfect, I was far from being a perfect teacher. Too often there were times where I didn’t have much patience, and rather than rise up and give her my very best, I was instead short tempered with my responses to her inquiries. And sadly, the most specific memory of Michelle that I carry with me came at our last meeting long after she graduated from our school. She would occasionally come back to check in on me after she graduated from 8th grade. Her last special visit came at an open house for our school. At this time, I believe Michelle was in college. However, on this occasion, I had a dropout in memory and forgot her name altogether. I knew this was Michelle Littlefield(!); and yet I couldn’t even call her “Ms. Littlefield” like I had done so many times before. So, we ended up talking in very general terms and then she left with her mom Gigi. This was to be the last time I saw Michelle. This is how we parted ways prior to that horrific fateful day when she was killed by a reckless driver on the I5. I know she would be in pain seeing me hurt by how I left things. I know she is saying “its ok Mr. T”, but it still hurts that I forgot her name on our last day together. Like I said, I was far from perfect, but Michelle was always a wonderfully forgiving person.
Like for so many, 2021 has been a personally difficult year for me. It is interesting how God works. I created a little impromptu lost and found video for my daughter’s school on behalf of our PTA with the goal of getting many lost and found items back to their owners. It was then posted by another PTA member on Facebook. However, for me to see the feedback from the video, I needed to create a Facebook account. Soon I realized the potential to piece the chapters of my life between Los Angeles and Washington (where I currently live) together as one. It was because of this, that I was able to reconnect with Gigi and then her husband Willy Jay. They asked me a favor if could jot down my memories of Michelle. I was honored. It is now 10:13 on New Year’s Eve and there is nothing in this whole world that I would rather be doing. I don’t think it is a coincidence that now following this tumultuous year, Michelle and her parents and I have all reconnected. And now, after working through my memories of Michelle, I realize that even if the worst of possible outcomes falls upon me, I can handle it and not only survive, but have the strength to use the misfortunate event to make me even stronger. That is what is Michelle taught me.
Michelle was a beautiful soul. I think of her often when looking at my own daughter Ella. Gigi and Willy Jay are inspirations to me both in being amazing parents to Michelle, and also serving as a beacon towards how to carry on through the toughest of times. Michelle had so much more to give to this world. It is said so often to live each day as though it is your last. No matter what the future holds for me, I know that today I have my daughter. I know that I can pass on Michelle’s spirit on to her. I know that as we now are on the cusp on 2022, I am thankful to be able to share my memories of Michelle Littlefield, because sharing Michelle’s memory makes us better people.
College of the Canyons Vigil
2-29-2016 - Hi my name is Kimberly. I know you don't know me, but I knew your daughter. The other day I saw her picture on FB and I prayed and prayed that it wasn't her. I called her cellphone and texted her many times. I just want to say that I am so so sorry for your loss. Your daughter was in my stats class at College of the Canyons and was one of the first people to really be nice to me and want to be friends with me. She was so smart and so kind to me. She helped me study and she was the reason why I passed that class. Your daughter was so smart and so kind and I can't even express how sad I am or how sorry I am that this happened. I ask myself sometimes why God lets something so horrible happen to such good people but I can't find the answer. I'm sorry for bothering you but I just wanted to tell you that your daughter really impacted my life and I'm heart broken that this happened. If you ever need anything my name is Kimberly Arispe. She is definitely in heaven with God. She had a good heart and was such a wonderful person. God bless.
