The brand will live on through you and the team with Michelle’s ethics of empathy and compassion to those of us with self esteem issues around our appearance, the impact of which cannot be underplayed in a society of ‘perfect’ faces on instagram and social media further adding to confidence knocks to those of us with less than perfect skin.

    Thank you for the beautiful podcast.
    RIP Michelle. 🙏

  60. I was as most QVC customers, very saddened at the early passing of such an inspirational, beautiful and talented lady.
    The podcast was so beautiful Tom. A true dedication to your ‘best buddy’. Who we know you will miss. But, we’re all so very sure that you will do Michelle, proud by carrying on her baby Alpha-H. I hope in time that the pain will soften Tom. Michelle, was so proud of you, you could tell that when you were, at Q, as a fantastic duo. I loved to watch & listen to you both, when Michelle was over in the UK. I’m hoping that you go far in the brand Tom. You truly deserve too. I hope that Michelle is still spoken about and remembered on the shows Tom. The picture on the podcast, is so beautiful of you both. I hope you will have that or another photo of you both, on the table at Q. I think that would be a beautiful touch. So, lovely if we can keep the fabulous lady’s memories living on and always remembered. Just because someone passes, we don’t have to go all quiet about them. I hope this is the same about Michelle. I hope she’s still spoken about. As she was such a shining star.
    Sending my condolences to you the wonderful Tom. You do a sterling job on Q. May it continue.
    To Michelle’s family. You have lost the most precious person,who kept your family as one great happy, loving circle. You will never forget her, but, I hope in time the pain will eventually ease.
    I know from my own experience how hard it is in losing the head of the house. As I lost my mam 44yrs ago, when I was just 11yrs old. It’s still painful, but, the pain softens, just a little bit every year.
    I truly hope this happens to Michelle’s family.
    I truly wish Michelle’s family, all the very best. Try to stay strong for one another.
    I’d love to see the brand go from strength to strength. Michelle would be so over joyed.
    To all her family, to the staff & everyone involved in Alpha-H. Especially, the very brilliant Tom. I wish you all the very best, at this incredibly sad time.
    May you be at peace now beautiful lady.
    All my love to her family & to Tom.

  61. Beautiful lady you brought me to discover a fabulous product from Alpha H. So very sad to hear you have left us. RIP lovely lady.

  62. I’m still in total disbelief and completely shocked and saddened to hear of Michelle’s passing at such an early age.
    She was a beautiful lady both inside and out with an amazing personality who worked hard and cared so very much for her team and her customers. She was so modest and deserved far more recognition for her contribution to other’s well-being through her revolutionary products.
    Rest in peace Michelle ❤. You will be missed more than you’ll ever know xx.
    Condolences to your daughters, the rest of your family and your Alpha H teams around the world and to Tom.
    R.I.P. 🙏
