Ed was a special person and dear son- in- law. My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to all his family and dear friends. May he rest in peace.

I met Jr. at the funeral for Madison's daughter. I am so sorry for your loss. He seemed to be a very nice person. After reading some of the comments here, I understand now that he was a great person and I am sorry that I did not get to know him. You have my deepest sympathy.

In the future we will never experience losing our loved ones. At Rev21 : 4

I met Mr. Mitchell at school with Baylee and Brian for holiday parties. He took joy in the silliness of the children that day and they really enjoyed him being there. Such sad news. Much love to all the family.

I'm deeply saddened by the loss of a good friend who is so much more to his family. My heart goes out to each of you as you mourn the loss of JR. and pray that you are able to find peace at this time. I have so many fond memories from childhood on to adulthood of JR. that I'm grateful for. Jr. had such a huge personality and filled everyone around him with joy. A bright light in this dark world was shut off too soon and all we now have is the glow of our memories of Jr. to help us see.
