I will always remember Mitchell as being one of the most genuinely caring, and empathetic people. I met him during a hard time in my life, and he didn’t judge me. He lifted me up everyday we spent together, even with his own short comings he still tried to make me feel better. Mitchell was extremely talented and I remember him playing guitar constantly and singing. Mitchell always meant the best. He definitely was a goofy guy, and made me laugh constantly. He always checked in on me from time to time, and I always answered when he needed a friend. I will miss his smile and funny laugh.

We will always remember Mitchell as a sweet, innocent boy who excelled at everything! Mitchell was smart, athletic, funny, and full of energy! His innocence was taken too soon, but we are sure that heaven looks good with a smart, energetic and innocent boy running around, and we look forward to seeing Michell again one sweet day!
