When I live below the hill on Shadybrook, Art was my bug man and I saw him at International Paper. He was a good friend and always had a kind word.

Mr. Mitchell’s family; please accept our condolences on your loss: Jesus said at Matthew 5:4 “Happy are those who mourn, since they will be comforted.” Also we can find comfort in the promise at Revelation 21:4 telling us that one day soon the earth will be a place of freedom from pain, mourning, and even death. This includes our lost loved ones (John 5:28).
