One thought on “Mitch Thomas”

  1. I was with mitch thru his last days. We gave him the best care he deserved. He died with dignity .He was a strong man and lighted a room when he mentered . His drag charcter Debbie Taunt from bosie Idaho would make minnie pearl laugh with envy. His ashes are buried at sunset hills cementry in the ravine were the kids play crack the whip. Rip my friend.
