I am in udder shock, I just recieved the phone call letting me know that I missed his memorial.

I went to school with Mitch, and was surprised when he recently reached out to me to let me know of his Grandson being born. And how over the top he was about the birth of his first Grandchild.

He taught me to drive, way back in the day. He was a amazing person, that will be terribly missed by those that had the pleasure of knowing him.

Rest in Paradise mi friend.

Years and time separated Mitch and I from the close cousins we were in the first 10 years of our life. But I have many fond and happy memories of adventures with Mitch. I know he will truly be missed by many. Prayers and blessing for peace and understanding
