My heart goes out to Sue, Sandy, Ryan and Grant, and of course the rest of the Family... I've been praying daily, that the Lord, would bring Mitch, through this terrible ordeal, and heal him, in God's Heavenly name! It was time for the Lord, to take Mitch home.... He had suffered enough, with his own demons, on this earth and now he is forever living, in glorious Heaven, for eternal life!

Mitch graduated with my late brother Jacob Young from Greensburg high school. I'm not sure they knew each other or not. I'm pretty sure Jake did know Mitch, Jake made friends with everyone he came across. Sending prayers to the family.

Mitch was a great friend, who I'll never forget. We shared so many great memories when we were younger. He had a great sense of humor, good cook, artistic and highly creative . But most of all, his greatest attributes were his huge heart and kind soul. If there's one message I know he would want to come from his passing, it would be to cherish your family and friends. They are priceless blessings. Mitch, may you rest in peace knowing you were loved and will be missed but you will not be forgotten.

I grew up on the same street as Mitch, and played basketball with him all the time. His family has always been really nice and are good people. Mitch sent me a lot of words of comfort when my brother passed away. Rest In Peace Mitch.
