    To the Mitchell family, I just want to say I am very deeply sad and for the loss of Tony he was my friend and he was my coworker here at Bayville golf club, not a day went by where somehow we struck up a conversation about anything and everything. Every time I saw him I always complemented him on how he was dressed. I will tell him he was dressed to impress and call him big money. I’m gonna miss him so much I’m gonna miss hearing him talk, or just carry on the conversation with him, or just throw my hand away to him he was a great man what a beautiful heart and soul and a breaks my heart to know he’s not with us anymore. I’m gonna miss you Tony I love you my old friend.
