RIP, Sallie Jordan Rohrbach

Re: My previous post, I very sadly report that Sallie's remains were found and identified on May 21.

She will be sorely missed by many!

Her killer is in jail, being held without bond. It seems they have collected a fair amount of evidence quickly.

I have set up this little page with a few collected links:

A friend of mine is missing in NC: Sallie Jordan Rohrbach

Sallie Rohrbach of Angier, NC
I do not know if I have many readers of my blog or not, but on the off chance that this might be helpful if some of you readers are in my "home" area of North Carolina...A friend of mine from high school, Sallie Rohrbach (pictured at right) of Angier, NC (near Raleigh), is missing and now apparently presumed dead, since someone has been charged with her murder. She was last seen in Charlotte, NC on Wednesday May 14.

This appears to be a good page for the "big picture" of the story as it progresses:

I've posted a picture/info and some relevant links here:

Anyone who has information or has seen Sallie is asked to call the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department at 704-336-2311 or Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.

Sallie is a lovely person -- very sweet, happy, funny, loving and kind. I hope everyone will offer some prayers or positive vibes for her well-being.

I was named INSTRUMENTALIST OF THE YEAR at the 2008 Madison Area Music Awards! [See some pics on the photos page of my web site - more coming soon!] This award was for my acoustic guitar work. A HUGE THANK YOU to those of you who partcipated in the voting process for this year's MAMAs! The ceremony was a blast and I was very, very honored to receive the award. (Incidentally, I have been nominated five times previously in the MAMAs, but this was my first win. I'm glad it didn't take me quite as long as it took Susan Lucci to win an Emmy!)
Congrats also to... manager/producer Randy Green who was a winner with recording artist Robert J for the song that Randy wrote, "Home Movies," which won Folk/Americana Song of the Year.
...Ben Johnston-Urey (Classical Song and Classical Album) - Ben is my church bandmate (Cornerstone)
...the Mud Angels (Blues Artist, Blues Song, Female Vocalist - frontwoman and fellow Tar Heel Laura England) - I assisted Randy Green in the studio (Randy's Recording) during the recording of their latest album and am a big fan.
So...if you are looking for some great tunes, pick up the latest CDs from these artists! (See links above for Robert J or Mud Angels; Ben's CD is available at Ward Brodt in Madison or contact me for more purchase options.)
Thanks again for your support and help!
