I've known Mitchie all his life, him and my son Graham were best of friends. When he was a little fella he would eat lunch at his house, come over and have lunch with Graham then go to Muggers for lunch. That boy was a fixture at our table and we loved having him. We have so many precious memories of this family.

I was so Blessed to work with Mitchell at Lowes.
He told us so many funny stories and made us laugh. He was such a great Gardener. He LOVED his Baby Girl Sydney so much. We were blessed to met him while at Lowes.
