Mitch you will be missed by so many people you have touched over the years. You are a beautiful sole. You were always positive and had a heart of gold. You had great taste in football and music. Rest well my friend.

I knew Mitch for many years working together at MetLIfe and so sad to hear of her passing. Mitch always had a smile and always seemed to be in a upbeat mood. I knew Mitch when she was a Dallas Cowboy fan, as I am, and had many nice talks about the "boys. She actually gave a me a Super Bowl program that the Cowboys were in and she attended. That was how generous Mitch was. Of course, she later

I met Mitch after Hurricane Katrina, when many of us "alumni" were working for more animal-friendly laws and policies, and setting up animal response teams in our home counties and states. Mitch and I hit it off right away - but she did that with everyone! She possessed a deep warmth and compassion, a genuine selflessness and positivity, and an unfailing commitment to helping animals in need (and their humans too, lots of times!). She loved to laugh, and we

I began at MetLife with Mitch and oh gosh we had so much fun in the training that we had for like an overall one for systems. We also ended up in the same department and eventually she was my supervisor for a while! She was one of the nicest people I ever met and her love for animals was just something else. When she went down to LA after the hurricane I was in touch with her. She was

I am heartbroken to hear of Mitch's passing. I got to know her through all her wonderful friends at The Animal Support Project. From the short time I had spent with her, it was evident she was "true blue" and a special soul. Here time here on Earth was short, but oh so meaningful. I hope you are surrounded in a field full of furry friends.... Hugs to you Mitch... Fly High!

Laurie and family, I am so deeply saddened at the monumental loss of your sister, Mitch. May God Bless Her Soul for all eternity and somehow comfort the gaping hole in your hearts. I am praying for you all and am so truly sorry.

You became Saint Mitch to me at MetLife sometime in the mid 90s after bailing me out of dozens of IT problems in the training room. Later, you proved you were a Saint to hundreds of pets that suffered after hurricane Katrina. You were a good friend at work always smiling and upbeat. You moved to upstate NY at about the same time I moved to NH. We talked about getting together I wish we had. You are loved and will be missed. I will not allow your memory to fade.
