Mitchell was a True Friend of our family and will be missed. We actually considered him "Part of Our Family". We have known Michell since the early 80's. For many years he visited the Baughnderosa 3-4 times a week and we looked forward to him stopping by. He was company to My father and mother, Ted & Leta Baughn, My Aunt, Kay Hudnall and grandmother, Myrtle Sanford (whom all are deceased now). They were too sick to leave the house and enjoyed having a beer, watching Jeopardy on television and discussing politics with Mitchell during his weekly visits. Rest In Peace Dear Mitchell
