Mitchell was a great friend and loved the Lord. We had talks of Heaven and he loved Michael W. Smith and his music. He is pain free and running around heaven with a big grin on his face. Neither life, neither death,
The highest high, the deepest depth
Nothing can
Nothing can separate
Neither tears, neither trials
Certain as the sun will rise
Nothing can
Nothing can separate
You are the anchor for my soul
You won't let go
You won't let go
No matter what may come I know
You won't let go
My heart remains sure in the wind, sure in the waves, always. -Michael W Smith
Love you Katie and lifting prayers for you and the family. Jill Libby Evans
