Today was a beautiful celebration of a beautiful soul. Though we didn't see Mitch very often, when we did it was always a delight. He had a smile that lit up a room and a such a gentile caring way about him that always made you feel so welcome and loved. Jim and I will miss him dearly.

Mitchie, It's so incredibly surreal that you are no longer with us. I'm going to miss everything about you; your huge smile, your enveloping arms and your huge bear hugs. Most of all, your pure, authentic soul. You are one of the most kind and loving people I have had the privilege of calling family. Thank you for always lighting up the room every time you walked in and for loving and protecting your little cousins with your whole heart. I pray you are at peace, until we meet again.
I love you always, Aunt Ang

Vicki, Paul and Kyle...I am sorry for your loss and hope you feel the love I'm sending your way. Mitch was a sensitive soul who touched our lives in positive ways. I hope you find some solace as others share all the wonderful qualities Mitch had and how he touched lives in ways you may have never known.

Love, Mary Mcgrane and family

I’m holding all the memories of Mitch forever close to my heart..
Some of my favorites when I think about him are driving with the windows down, singing our favorite songs, and him always holding his hand up to my mouth as if it were my microphone! Our lunch dates where we would give eachother a nod and decide to spontanesouly drive to Black Hawk for the day.
Our Rockies Game adventures and laughing so hard our stomachs hurts.
I love you Mitch you will always be one of the sweetest, gentlest hearts I have ever known.
Please, never leave my side.

My mom always says how rare it is to know more than one generation of a family, and here I know 3 generations of the Nilles family. Having grown up seeing Paul Sr and Maizie at church, I have known about Mitch for his whole life. I actually got to know Mitch when I became the tennis coach at SHS. The first day of practice Mitch and Taylor were hitting the ball, not back and forth, but more in the home run fashion. Mitch was standing in his baseball stance, holding his racket like a bat, and then Taylor would pitch it, and Mitch would hit it out of the park. For 3 years I had the honor and privilege to coach and teach Mitch. He was one of my favorites, if I am being honest. He was kind, he was sweet, and he was soooooo patient with Taylor. He never fought back; he would smile, with his hat perched a top his head, usually cocked off to the side, put his arm around Taylor and then the two of them would walk off together. And in class, even though he told me that he cheated off of Shannon, would work really hard to do his best and earn good grades but never taking himself, or others, too seriously. I will always remember Mitch for his ability to chew on toothpicks, grass, Styrofoam cups (in class!) or sunflower seeds (always having a cup to spit the shells into), while having an innocent smile.

And not many of us will ever forget his, and maybe Coyle's idea, to create tubs in the bed of the trucks, using tarps, while putting on a bar-b-que, in the parking lot at SHS, just before graduation.

I am so sorry for your loss. He was one of the best people I have ever met.
