Mitchell will always be fondly remembered as fun-loving, polite, athletic, and yes, a bit mischievous! I feel blessed to have been a part of his life as our boys played baseball together and were neighborhood friends. Becky and I had to be vigilant members of the “Mom Network” to stay a step ahead of our guys. They could never figure out how we seemed to always know what they were up to! Love and prayers forever! ❤️Denise
