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.
