Donna, Libby and Little Mitt, I will always have fond memories of Mitt. Always kind and always had a sweet smile. One memory comes to mind when he would come by and take my mother by her sister's home who had cancer. Every Thursday he came by without fail with his warm encouraging smile. He was always supportive to friends and family. I'm sorry for your loss. One fun story was when he went by your mother's college dorm to pick her up.....I'm thinking they eloped. They both would laugh, they had a magic love for each other.

Mitt was a little ahead of me in high school. One of the people we all looked up & admired. It is so sad to hear of the passing of friends from long ago. I hope all of the family will find some joy in the memories of him.
