  1. Those whom we have loved never really leave us. They live on forever in our hearts, and cast their radiant light onto our every shadow. ~

    Sending much love and prayer in this time of great loss..

  2. Mitch & I played cowboys & Indians when we were small. After reconnecting with him through cousin reunions starting 2007, he became my cowboy cousin! We stayed in touch and it has meant so much to me. His last text to me was 3/10/20; his last words were “Love ya kid”. I had the chance to tell him I loved him more. Thank you, God. He was a special cousin.

  3. To the Dovey family – I was a 1962 classmate of Mitchell’s at Nebraska City High School. I was sorry to read of his passing. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers.
