“I’m falling more and more in love with [Matilda], and I think she deserves the bulk of my attention. We’re lucky. I can work. She can go to a good school. There’s a lot there for her. And she can know her dad in so many ways, and so many of his friends who will be able to tell her so many stories. His friends, his family—they were a big part of his life, and they will be a big part of her life.” – Michelle, on her beautiful daughter.
“She’s got light and she’s full of energy like her dad – I see a lot of similarities, so I hope Michelle’s getting ready for all that energy.” – Heath’s mother, Sally Bell, on her granddaughter.
