Another example of the kindness of Mr. Mitchell: In 2005 he gave me, a resident of The Woodlands since 1975 who he did not know, had never met, an hour-long interview to support The Woodlands Oral History Project.
I was told by someone who had been in many meetings with Mr. Mitchell that, “Wherever the meeting, whoever was there George was always the smartest man in the room”.
It is difficult to conceive how one person could accomplish so much, so well in so many areas and with such modesty and grace. Hamlet said it best, “He was a man. Take him for all in all. We shall not look upon his like again”.
We extend our sincere condolences to The Mitchell Family and all those saddened by this loss.
