We'll Miss You Roger!!


This has been a difficult week for us at MCC. We have lost two officers this week. Most of you probably understand what I mean when I say when you lose a wonderful person you work with it's like the world just needs to stand still for a day so we can catch up. We grow to appreciate each other probably even more than we appreciate our own family. We spend just as much time, if not more, together as we do our "other" loved ones. So when a coworker passes it effects all of us. I know my heart has a hole in it that cannot be filled. Only 48 years old, Officer Roger Mitchell passed away unexpectedly while preparing for work yesterday morning. He always gave me my "annual Christmas hug" at the Christmas Party every year. I'll think of you every Christmas Roger! You are already greatly missed!! May you rest in peace and I cannot wait to see you again...

Oh, Lisa, I am so sorry. I hadn't heard of his passing. I was in Wein this weekend and was thinking of you. Now I know why.
