I am truly sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the Mitchell family find comfort and strength in Jesus promise along with our Heavenly Father Jehovah of the earthly resurrection found at John 5:28, 29, when death will be eliminated forever found at  Revelations 21:4. Truly, what a glorious and almost unbelievable day that will be! It's a reality though for God cannot lie!

I am so sorry for your loss. May you be granted strength and peace during your hour of need. As an intern at Overlook Outpatient Behavioral Health, I had the privilege of working with “Dr. Pete.” His dedication and hard work, not to mention his sense of humor, were inspirational. I attended his retirement party where he continued to inspire me with his plans for the future. He will be missed, and your family will be in my prayers.
