My thougts and prayers have been with Tyrone's family since I heard the terrible news of his passing. I have known Tyrone most of my life. We attended school together for many years and participated in the Upward Bound College Prep program together. He was always a repsectable man with a gorgeous smile and sharp intellectual skills. I ran into him some months back at a gas station after not seeing him for many years. He greeted me warmly and we talked for a while about our children. My prayer is that his family be comforted by the memories that were shared and the life he lived. God bless you in your time of mourning.

Dear Mitchell Family,
I just heard of Tyrone's death. It breaks my heart. We had many fun and serious times at Weaver. He leaves a memory in Weaver's history as a fine, bright and caring young man. Unbelevable - to leave so soon. May God be with all of you, especially the children. Let his loss make you stronger and determined to be the best you can be.
With love

I have fond memories of Tyrone as a student in my class at Weaver. His sharp mind and kind ways made him an outstanding scholar. Weaver as an institution celebrated his graduation from Yale. He will be deeply missed.

This past week has been really hard considering that I've known Tyrone for over 25 years. We attended the same classes at both Fox and Weaver. My heart is aching for his children and his family. He will be sorely missed by everyone he had encountered. I will continue to pray for his family. May they find the strength to comfort them during this difficult time.

I am so sadden on the passing of a dear friend I briefly got to know for a short period of time but, felt like we knew each other forever. The love he had for others was so obviously contagious and welcoming. We had just exchange phone numbers and, I was excited to get to know who this very bright brother was. I only let very positive, real, people in my circle of friends. I even told him on may occasions that he had reminded me so much of my older brother. Until I got the notice on that heart wrenching friday of March 7th of his passing, I was devistated on belief. All I could think of is all the good times we all were having on the bus riding to work laughing, joking, and out of all our laughs, (U can hear his distinctive deep, kind, laugh out of the air clearly). him talking highly of his kids. He even would sometimes sit alone on the bus just reading his book so contently. Another good brother gone too soon. Carl love for others and his golden heart will be missed. Carl, I know ur looking down on us from the golden streets of heaven. Man we miss U dude! Until next time, we'll see each other again, peace and love big dawg. I would like to send my condolences out to the entire Mitchell family and pray that GOD holds you and comfort you during this trying time. May GOD bless you and your entire family.

May you cherish all the precious memories you have of Carl.
