Thank you John Lynch for calling me yesterday - informing me that my friend John Mitchell had "gone home" We have been friends for 16 years. I took care of Oscar when he had surgery here in Plano. We laughed and went to each other's church. He took me to an out-patient surgery appt and was such a good nurse. I picked him up when his little red truck was tee-boned. I know how happy he was with Lynda and how grief nearly overtook him and then he got Sadie! He was an animal lover for sure. I am too and we shared that pet love. I will miss him and his emails and his humor, but I know he is reunited with Lynda and Oscar. He was a believer, so I know he's in heaven right now telling jokes! God Bless the family. We will have to learn to live in a world without John. Blessings to all
