    Mitch was a honorary member of our family who was a truly remarkable man. I know him as a man who loves music, to cause trouble when it can bring a smile and enjoyed the company of those who loved him. I am humbled by Mitch’s drive to live life even with the tough hand he was dealt and was proud to say that I was able to live a small portion with him in my life. Mitch, you will be missed but your memory will live on.

    Mitch has been a part of my family for most of my life. Any time my family was together, he was there with us. I remember him being a jokester, always trying (and succeeding) to make us laugh. Mitch’s love for music was so great; I remember playing a game where we had to guess the song/artist and Mitch was always the first to get it- and always correctly. He was a man so full of life and happiness despite his hardships. I will truly miss him.

  14. Debora Bailey says:

    I am truly sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the Olig family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection (John 5:28, 29) and the renewed Paradise earth, where death is an enemy (1 Corinthians 15:26) that will very soon be eliminated forever, and no family will mourn the death of a loved one (Revelation 21:4). This promise has been given by Almighty God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18). Truly, what a glorious and almost unbelievable day that will be! It’s a reality though for God cannot lie (Titus 1:2).
