"I was Tyrone's guidance counselor at Eastview, and he was one who touched my heart. I know that we are not supposed to have 'favorite students' but I am not afraid to say that Tyrone is and will always be a favorite," wrote Anne Scholen in Mitchell's online guestbook. "His kind soul, gentle nature, and acceptance of all touched everyone around him, and we are all better for having known him. I'm so sorry for your loss."
