  1. It’s awesome that Mitch Michaud spent some time with your group after being away from it for so long that he was “lost”.

    Mitch was my brother-in-law, and I want to let you know that he passed away a few weeks ago. He had been in failing health for some time.

    I found your website a few years ago, and mentioned to him that he was on the missing list. I hope it was why he got back in touch with you.
