Mitchell Barclay Hatfield: February 20, 2007 - September 2, 2012



Mitchell Barclay Hatfield came into this world on February 20, 2007.  The pediatrician from the first called him "stubborn," which although initially made his mommy mad, in retrospect is very true and a gift.  He knew his mission and that he didn't have long to complete it.  He was always a very funny, playful little boy who liked attention and to be in the action of things.  Life for him changed suddenly in April of 2010 when his first symptom--a droopy, non-tracking right eye occurred.  Yet, he was still able to run and play until November of 2010 when he suddenly awoke unable to walk.  He was then diagnosed with a brainstem glioma and endured 15 months of treatments.  Every doctor and nurse he came in contact with were immediately drawn to his sense of humor, smile, and playful warmth.  Wherever we would go, he'd say, "Hi, I'm Mitchell!" and proceed to divulge every detail he had.  He loved his brother Jackson and sister Eden very much.  He and his brother would often be found sharing the same bed and staying up late talking.  Of his sister, he often commented, "Isn't Eden beautiful?"  The love was and is mutual.  His mommy always knew he was special and laughed at his antics.  His dad was and is his best buddy, "No matter what...we just are."  Although we are sad that today, Sunday, September 2nd he left our earthly home, we are so grateful for the knowledge that we will be together again.  Mitchell was just too good for this world and came to bless our lives and those of all those who met him.  We love you always and forever Mitchell!  We will miss you; until we meet again!
