  9. I met “Mitch” through one of his best buddies, Reggie Davis. I used to call him “Mitchell”, to mess with him! Unknown to me, that was his last name! He always reciprocated the greeting calling me “McGee”! He didn’t know i didn’t know “Mitchell” was his surname, but I do now and am glad to know him! He is a precious guy who didn’t get bad or mad at anyone! That’s how I remember him, and gladly so!

  10. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family
