STATEMENT FROM CONGRESSWOMAN SHEILA JACKSON LEE REGARDING CONGRESSMAN MICKEY LELAND:
“Mickey Leland was a humble but larger than life man who humbled himself to find the most impoverished and the neediest and worked to make the pathway of their life better. He was a man who sought to make the pathways of those unknown to him better than the misery in which he found them. Gregarious with a wonderful smile and laugh, and friend to many, Congressman Leland left a remarkable footprint not only on Houston and Texas and America but around the world. We thank his wonderful family, including his mother Alice, for sharing him with us. My God rest his soul and may we never forget on this day in the years and decades to come to remember to say the name “Mickey” and say a simple thank you.”
