While appearing at a clinic at Washington High School in Sioux Falls, S.D., Gervin with the Argus Leader newspaper.
“I’ve had my time to mourn,” Gervin told the newspaper. “Just last year Mike and I were playing golf two or three times a week. To lose such a good guy at such a young age is a tragedy. Prayerfully, I think he’s gone to a better place, but we’re all going to miss him.”
Mitchell died Thursday after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was 55.
