1018Re: Arrested for 17 year-old murder???
- Aug 9, 2007I have just recently moved back to the J-town area and have not had
the time to stop into the store to say hi. I regret not having
visited now more than ever. During the time I lived here previously,
and after I moved to Chambersburg where they had a store for a few
years, I saw Mike on an almost daily basis. I always considered Mike
a good friend and I was totally shocked when I heard this news on the
radio this week. My prayers are certainly with Mike and Renee and
the kids, and I hope someone is able to relay our love and concern to
them. I know it has been a long while since I spoke with them, but
they were never far from my thoughts.
