Not sure what to say?

I was sorry to hear this morning, the passing of Gary Mitchell. My family enjoyed Thanksgivings with my Great Uncel John who was very proud of his son Gary. The children loved hearing story of Gary's travels. But I am more saddened to hear he had moved back to Richmond and I don't know. May God Bless.

I am so blessed to have known such a special man and truly thankful you came to our little town of Greeneville.

Mitch was my pastor at Timber Ridge Church in Greeneville. He was a caring and loving man.

Mitch was my pastor at Timber Ridge. He taught my confirmation class and baptized me. He would always give all the children Cadbury Cream Eggs at church during children's sermon at Easter time.

I knew Mitch from seminary and were colleagues in Holston Presbytery. He got me into War Between the States re-enacting which as therapy for me at the time.I share an affection for the Eastern Orthodox from seminary and Navy chaplain service with a priest of that faith. God bless Mitch, you are missed and we'll see you with the Lord when we pass over. Peace be with you.

Mitch was our dear pastor for 11 years at Timber Ridge presbyterian in Greeneville,TN. We shared many hours and meals together. He was a caring, loving pastor to his flock and a wonderful friend to us. After his retirement, and his move to Richmond, he would call each winter after he received our Xmas card and we would talk for at least an hour. He was so in love with his new church. We will never foget his influence on our lives.

Mitch and I were friends during his time in Greeneville, Tenn. Last time we talked, he was writing a novel that sounded like fun. I had hoped to read it and should have stayed in touch better. Did he finish it? I love his re-enactment photo. My condolences to his family and friends with whom he spent his final years.
