Hi to everyone!

Thanks to all who have personally emailed me regarding the letter writing campaign that I posted about previously. After discussing our options, we have deceided that we should wait until after our appeal has been granted. The main reason behind this is the fact that the three judge panel are ONLY going to consider the points as outlined in the appeal. Thus, it would be to no avail to address other issues to these judges. Hopefully we will have a date soon for oral arguments. Please keep Mechele in your prayers as we wait patiently (!) for this process to occur! I welcome any emails that you want to send. Thanks again for the outpouring of love and support!

Hi Sandy and Friends of Mechele. I am so grateful to have found your blogspot. I live in Olympia and I am an acquaintance of Mechele. We went to school together at St. Martins and at Evergreen. We shared a few classes together and worked on a few projects together. When I learned of her trial and subsequent conviction I was sickened. I think of Mechele often and have attempted to find updates on her appeal over the last year to no avail until I found this blogspot. The link to her mailing address is not working right now, but I am looking forward to writing her and supporting her any way that I can. What I do know about Mechele is that she has strong positive values and convictions, stands up for them, she has a good heart and cares deeply about her family. I can't imagine how big her daughter is now, but I remember her bringing her into class with her at St Martin's. She must have been 3 or 4. I am so sad that she doesn't physically have her mom right now. To her family, I am truly sorry for what you are going through. I can't even imagine the feelings of helplessness and powerlessness that you must feel at times. I hope this blogspot helps and that you all get the love and support you need. Give Mechele my warmest thoughts and wishes.

Rachelle, thank you so much for your kind comment. We are working on the link to her address. Please email me at msylady@yahoo.com and I will personally send it to you. Our family is staying strong as is Mechele. We have every hope that her appeal will be granted and that justice will be done and our beloved Mechele will come home to us.
