Andree, Chris, John and families,
I have such wonderful memories of times spent with both your mom and dad over the years and I will hold those memories forever close to my heart. It's hard to adequately express how much Eric and I adored your dad. Marilyn and Mitch treated me like a daughter and my son like an "adopted grandchild" . Mitch was Eric's buddy and he and "The Lad" spent their days together when Eric was younger in the backyard lighting fires in the chiminea, touring the beautiful garden and shooting the BB gun, much to Eric's delight. I am so grateful that we got to spend time with him when we visited in September! In typical Mitch fashion, his parting words were "Ya'll don't have to go home, but ya can't stay here"!! Oh, how we will miss him. We were blessed to know him and to love him and for that, we will be forever grateful. Thank you all for sharing your dad with us. Sending all our love and prayers for comfort for your hearts at this difficult time.
Rest well now "Dad". Until we meet again, you remain forever in our hearts.
We love you all!
Donna and Eric

I’m so sorry for your loss. Your family is in my prayers and thoughts. He was a great across the street nieghbor to my parents (Lewis & Bunny Summers) when they were alive. Always tossing gum or candy to my kids & niece & nephews when they were visiting their grandparents. My daughter bought the house just a few doors down across the street last year . One of her first comments after moving in was remembering how nice he was to her and of course the candy giving :)
