I loved working at Pirate's Beach and visiting with George. He would come to the sales office with crab traps on top of his caddy and give us pep talks. Galveston and Texas has lost a great son. Deepest sympathy to his family

MY FIRST JOB OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL AT AGE 17 WAS AT "CHRISTIE, MITCHELL AND MITCHELL" THERE WERE 35 EMPLOYEES AT THAT TIME. I HAD THE HONOR TO WORK FOR THE COMPANY FOR 10 YEARS. I MET MY HUSBAND THERE. WHAT A FANTASTIC WAY TO START A CAREER. I LEFT THE COMPANY TO BECOME A FULL TIME MOM. THE MITCHELL FAMILY ARE PRECIOUS PEOPLE. I USED TO BABY SIT GRAND-DADDY MITHCELL WHEN CHRISTIE MITCHELL WOULD BRING HIM TO SEE JOHNNY AND GEORGE. WHAT PRECIOUS MEMORIES I HAVE OF THAT TIME IN MY LIFE. WHAT AN EXAMPLE WE HAD TO FOLLOW, OUR LEADERS WERE THE ULTIMATE, NOT ONLY AS EMPLOYERS, BUT FATHERS WITH STRONG FAMILY VALUES, AND JUST GOOD PEOPLE. MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 54 YEARS AND RETURNED TO THE GALVEZ HOTEL FOR OUR 50TH. WE ARE SAD THAT WE MISSED GEORGE BY AN HOUR THAT DAY. THANK YOU GEORGE MITCHELL FOR THE INFLUENCE YOU HAD ON OUR LIVES. I WAS THINKING ABOUT SOME OF THE PEOPLE THAT WORKED THERE: BENNETT YOUNG, JOYCE GAY, PEGGY LEWIS, JIM HARRISON, OSCAR BRUMMETT, WONDERFUL PEOPLE. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.

My deepest sympathy to the entire Mitchell family on the loss of their loved one. I did not know Mr. Mitchell but from what I have read in recent days about him,(the obit was awesome) Texas has truly lost a "Great Man", with all his wealth he never forgot his humble beginnings and set such a great example of how we should live our lives, helping those in need and giving back to the community. This world is certainly a better place for having George Mitchell pass through it and will be for many generations to come. May his soul rest in peace in God's loving care and he enjoy his heavenly reward he so richly deserves. God Bless and Thank You, Mr. Mitchell!

Mr. Mitchell is deserving of our admiration for his vision, design, and implementation of The Woodlands. As Woodlands residents since 1981, we are the beneficiaries of his genius. Many thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell for their contributions to Texas and the world. Our sincere condolences to the Mitchell family and loved ones.

My heart goes out to Mr. Mitchell's family and my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am truly blessed to have known and worked for Mr. Mitchell. Upon arriving in Houston in 1981, fresh out of college and looking to start my career, a friend told me of Mr. Mitchell and his "new" Woodlands community. He sounded like a man I could trust and believe in. Mr. Mitchell gave me my first job and I worked for him and his Mitchell Energy "family" for the next 22 years, until the sale of MEDC to Devon. I will always be grateful to Mr. Mitchell for that opportunity. He was a man I greatly admired for his unrelenting determination and for the visionary he was. His foresight was incredible and his ability to make his visions and dreams come true still amaze me today. He will be truly missed. What a great and wonderful man!

My condolences to the Mitchell Family, and a special message to Sheridan. Mrs. Lorenz, I was the Limo Driver who took you and your parents to the 30th Anniversary Gala for the Woodlands honoring your parents. It was a real pleasure to get to meet you and Mother and Father. Let me just say that I'm sure that if you look up at the stars at night he will definitely be looking down at you and the other family members. He was truly a great person for our community and our world. We will all miss him. Sincerely, Dale R. Miller

The obituary is a beautiful, heartfelt story of a special human being. I never met him, but I feel like I know him. I am only one of the thousands of fellow Aggies who know his name and his legend, but I am proud to be associated with him in even such a small, distant way. My condolences to the family, having lost my own father last week, I truly feel your pain. I pray you soon find the comfort that comes from knowing his life was so magnificently lived, and you are blessed to be part of his legacy.

What a great man who had vision that continues to benefit Houston and citizens throughout the world! Like Texas, he was bigger than life, thought big, and made big things happen. Truly an inspiration to all.

The first time I met Mr. Mitchell I was coming out of The Tremont House after applying for a job. The doorman was helping some else & I saw this older man & woman getting out of an old yellow Cadillac. So I held the door for them and the man said "thank you young fella" are you our new doorman. I had no idea who he was but I said "no, I did just fill out an application but I haven't been interviewed yet". He stuck out his hand & said my name is George Mitchell & this is my wife. I still did not know who was. He then said "why don't go back in side and have a talk about you coming to work here". I said thank you so much, do you know the manager? He chuckled a little and said "I have a little influence on the hiring that he does". Guess who was starting their new job at the Tremont House. This guy was. I worked there until I left for the Army. Such a kind & humble man. It was my honor & pleasure to have known him. Thank you Mr. & Mrs Mitchell for your kindness & generosity. May the lord keep & bless you both!

Mr. Mitchell was Galveston. He did so many wonderful things for the Island. I have fond memories of seeing him at the Tremont listening to Oma play the piano. A part of Galveston has died. He will be truly missed.
