The family and friends of Michele Peters will be holding a candle light vigil to honor Michele on Friday April 6th at 8pm at the Oak Lawn Pavillion on 94th and Oak Park Ave. PLEASE come out to honor this beautiful person!!! We need to keep this case on the minds of all involved so hopefully soon there will be justice for not only Michele but her family and her 2 sons who as of now were seperated from not only their mother but their whole family!!!
