To all of the family members, I pray our Heavenly Father wraps you all up in comfort like only He can. I'm so very sorry for your loss. What a gifted, kind and gentle man. I feel so privileged – lucky - and blessed to have had Charles Mitchell for a neighbor all of those years. He was THE best neighbor and always so kind to everyone. Always made sure I had enough gas in the mower and he'd often reach over the fence and offer an ice cold A&W rootbeer with a cup afterwards and say, “don't you get too hot out here now”. I'll miss his corny jokes and his quick wit and funny birthday cards. I'll miss hearing him say “Yooozz all the time welcome.” whenever I said “thank you, CM!” Sweet memories of sitting on the back step after mowing the lawn, sipping that rootbeer to the tune of a master fiddle player and his love of country music Charles Mitchell and his music rising up through the chimney. What a memory . . . I will miss you so much Charles Mitchell.
