Michael Carr was killed last week. You can read the story here.
To most Mike was just another person killed in a senseless act. I knew him personally years ago and can say he was one hell of a person. He was close friends with my family, worked with one of my older sisters and even dated another one. I don’t know much about his later life. I do know that my two sisters that knew him thought highly of him as did my mom. As a kid, I can remember him helping my mom carry groceries over to our house and then sitting around and playing video games with me or looking at my newest baseball card(s). He wasn’t supposed to do that, but he did, many times getting in trouble. Mike will surely be missed.
