I will light a candle on March 2nd and let it shine all night in honor of your son who even though he is gone shines on in lots of peoples hearts throughout the USA and the rest of the world! Shine on Mitchel..........
Sweet little boy,
I am sorry that you have had such a difficult journey, I find myself crying when I think of all the times you have wished you were like all the other kids who could freely run arround and play...
Will keep you in my heart forever.
Such a beautiful boy with a beautiful soul. You can just see the passion and strength in him from his pictures. Much love to his family and I am glad that they shared his story with others. Fly high, sweet little boy. <3
I have followed Mitchell's journey on FB, and when I heard of his passing my heart went through every emotion; I am still crying over the loss of this beautiful and courageous boy. Mitch has touched my heart in many ways that I never knew existed. I never thought it was possible for a stranger to mourn for another stranger; but I have grown to love Mitch so very much through his will to survive, his love for his family, and through his family and their tender words of their son, through photos and videos.
Mitch has a wonderful family that gave him the most beautful gifts of all: Love, Happiness, Faith, Support, Strength, and Will power.
Thank you for sharing Mitchell's Journey with all of us, it has changed us in so many ways. This beautiful little boy is a true hero.
May God bless you and your family always.
This little boy has touched me in a way I can't explain having only followed his story for a short while on Facebook he was truly a beautiful courageous boy and I thank his family for sharing his story with the world. Rest in Peace Mitchell you have given me a different outlook on life to cherish my own children even more and to kiss and cuddle them at every opportunity. Sweet dreams sunshine. xxx
We continue to pray for your family. May Mitchell's legacy live on through you all & your efforts to bring more awareness to DMD. Thanks for your examples of courage & faith. You have made the world a better place through the sharing of your challenges. We love you!
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
Thank you for sharing your story on Facebook. It was powerful and taught many of us the true meaning of the strength of family, trust in our Savior, and eternal love. May our Heavenly Father give you His love and peace and comfort in this your time of grief.
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time. Thank you for sharing Mitchell's Journey with us. It has truly touched my heart. RIP Mitchell.
We wanted you to know that we are thinking about you at this time and know that you will feel the peace and comfort that you need as the days pass on. Isn't it wonderful to know for certain that he is not having to be tested and tried and you know where he is. That you have a child that is perfect and in a place that we all want to return to. You have been such an example to the world and especially our family. Best wishes.

Dear Jones Family, We are very sorry to hear of your loss. Mitchell played on the Miracle League Baseball team with our son Alex. Mitchell had a wonderful smile and I am honored to have been his coach. Sincere condolences
I do not know this sweet young man, but wanted to light a candle for him!! May the lord watch over his family. GOD BLESS
Just discovered this page very recently. Our deepest sympathies are with you in this time of unimaginable grief. I hope you will take comfort in the fact that so many people are praying for your beautiful family, and that your little boy is now among all the Angels in Heaven. We often forget, in the course of our busy lives, those things that are the most important of all. Thank you Mitchell for the reminder. May God bless you all and provide you with the strength to endure such a loss. Sincere condolences, the Toernes. Tim, Laurie, Max, Marek and Muriel.
Condolences on your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know you don't know me but I do know your pain. Mitchell is up there playing with my little boy now. May God give you comfort in this time of pain.
You are such a beautiful young man! I have an 11 year old son who looks like he could be your twin. He loves lego's and black ops and Halo just like you. In many of your pictures your wearing halo shirts and my son has them all too. You are such a good example of what a child of god is supposed to be. Please watch over your family and friends during their time of need. Your comfort will only make them smile and feel the love their used to. To the Jones Family, you have to be so proud of the way you raised your son and other children. You are the example of what families are supposed to be. I have never seen so much love in my life. You have made me a better man, husband, and father and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please feel the comfort of your son and everybody that is praying for you during this most diffucult time. With that being said Me and my family love you and your family Mitchell and can't wait to meet you in heaven.
Natalie, words cannot express how much you mean to us! We were brought together by this disease, we have been through the ups and downs of DMD together. Our family will continue to fight DMD in honor of Mitchell. I know one day our boys will be together again sharing their contagious laughter together, standing up for each other, only this time they will be able to run through the fields together instead of sitting out on the sidelines watching, and wishing they could be just like everyone else! Our hearts are with you always! We share a bond, just like our boys shared, this bond is something no one else will ever understand! We will miss Mitchell more than words can say! With all our love!
Sorry to hear of your loss, Mitchell was a brave young man. I too still believe in Santa. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Your such a beautiful young man! You remind me of my 11 year old who looks like he could be your twin. He loves to play video games and lego's just like you. He has the many Halo shirts you have also. You will surely be missed by many. Please comfort your loving family in the times they need you and I know they will always need you! Until we meet in heaven my friend please watch over your loving family and friends!

Dear Jones family, I'm so sorry for your loss. On Friday night for some reason I ready every page of Mitchell Journey. Your family story touched my heart. May God bless you in your time of need.
Mitchell's life and struggle with his disease and how he dealt with it has touched my life deeply. It has been an honor to get to know him and your family through Facebook. May the truthfulness of the gospel bring to your hearts the comfort that through the atonement of our Savior and Redeemer Mitchell's body will be made perfect, and that the promise of eternal families will keep your family intact. May the memory of his beautiful smile give you a that little squeeze he always gave you with his hands to let you know that his love for you is eternal.
