I just want to express my sympathy to the family, regarding the passing of Mitch Miles. I was a vocal music student of Mr. Miles, 1979-80 & 1980-81, at Bonner Springs High School. He was my very favorite teacher. He always had a smile and kind word. Heaven has received a very special soul! May he rest in peace.

Anne and family.
So saddened to hear the news. Remembering the times spent together brings joy to my heart. Goes back a long way to when we played little league baseball for Arcadia. He was a great player. enjoyed hunting together in later years. May God bless and comfort each of you.

Anne and children, Mitch and I were distant relatives but we did not keep very close in touch with each others. I always thought that one day we would get together for a visit - but that never happened.
My prayers are with you and I pray that God comforts you in this trying time.

Hugs and Prayers, Phyllis
