Mitch will always be in my heart and own a piece of my heart, for as we produced a handsome young man. Curtis his son is someone who will make him proud as he watches over him. I wish things could have been different but we both went our separate and had separate lives. But I will always remember you everything I look into Curtis eyes I will see "Mitch" . God Bless and prayers to your family may they be blessed.
