Condolences

We were so saddened to hear about the passing of Mitch. I have many great memories in regard to my teaching/coaching career. None was greater than when Mitch was my "assistant coach" during a game when I was the Freshman BB Coach at THS. He handled my halftime "chat" that day; and handled it well. I will never forget the look on his face when he was done. Great Memory! Bec and I wish you and yours the very best during this very difficult time. May God Bless!! Rick and Becky Taggart

My heart is saddened to hear the passing of Mitch. He was one of my biggest fans when I played basketball at Triway. I can still see and hear him as he cheered for me from the stands. I enjoyed spending time with him talking about sports. I will miss his huge beautiful smile.
My love and sympathy to Jeannie, Steph, and the rest of his family.

Jeannie & Stephanie, So sorry to learn of the passing of Mitch. He was a very special person with a great big smile
and I know your heart is broken. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Mitch. He was such a great guy. He always remembered me no matter where he ran in to me at. Mitch's smile was infectious. When you saw Mitch with that big smile of his, you just had to smile back. I remember when I taught the whole family how to roller skate. Mitch wasn't sure he wanted to try it, but he let me help him and he did it. He was so excited. He talked to me about that for years. Mitch also loved coming to the ballpark and watching the girls play softball when my husband Randy was coaching. Jeannie and Stephanie--You are in my prayers. Take comfort in knowing that Mitch is in Heaven with God and Phil.

Stephanie, I was very sad to hear of your brothers passing. My sincere sympathy goes out to you and your family. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Stephanie and Family, we were so sorry to hear about Mitch.
May the memories you made and the love you shared help you through this most difficult time.
Our prayers are with all of you. God Bless, Dan and Chris McAnallen
