Mike Mitchem said his brother and sister-in-law had not been vaccinated, even though family members urged them to get the shots. “They’d just been leery. They were going off what they’ve been hearing and reading on the internet.”
“My brother was healthy. He was still pretty much young and he had everything to live for,” Mike Mitchem said of his brother, who wasn't vaccinated. “He had five kids and a grandson and now all of them have lost him."
