We were impressed, but not surprised, by the beautiful tributes each of Saul's grandchildren presented at his service. While I didn't see Saul very often the last few years, he and your entire family were a big part of my early years in Monroe, and I will always be grateful for those relationships. Now a quick anecdote that speaks volumes about Saul. One of the last times we met was on Christmas Day a couple of years ago at Best Buy Restaurant on Renwick Street. Saul was in line holding a slip of paper with the name and address of the next family he would deliver meals to. Some give money, some give sweat, but what a refreshing example he was of a selfless guy who insisted on doing both!

Your family, our city and state and all the people that were touched by Saul's life feel a void today. His memory will live on for the wonderful things he did and the friendship he gave to many. I am lucky to have known Saul and will always remember his kind words whenever we had a chance to talk. Unfortunately I am traveling this week or I would be there in person. God Bless.

To Mrs. Jean Mintz and the Family, It was an honor to serve on the Food Bank of Northeast LA Board with Mr. Saul Mintz. He was truly a compassionately person, and I will always remember him for that. Please know that my thoughts are with you and the family at this sad time. May God continue to give you strength now and in the days to come.

Having work for Saul for 20 years, I know all the superlatives that describe him. He was one of the finest men I ever knew, and besides my boss was a mentor in my professional career, a true gentleman and gift to all mankind. He and his family were part of my extended family, and I send condolences to the entire Mintz family. Wish I could be there, but hope to see you all very soon.

For a man of such importance, no one was ever nicer or more pleasant to me than Saul was and I had great respect for him and he will be missed by many, and a great loss to this community.
Lisa Curry left a message on September 18, 2012:
I had the pleasure of working under Mr. Mintz at Sunbelt Plastics. I will never forget his generosity and support. The opportunities that I was given at Sunbelt molded me into the person that I am today, and I will be forever grateful. Years later, whenever I would run into Mr. Mintz, he always remembered me, and had the warmest smile. He will surely be missed here on earth, but his reward is in heaven! Praying for God's peace and comfort for the family.
Joe Roberts left a message on September 18, 2012:
Monroe, Louisiana is a better place because Saul Mintz lived here and loved this community. Each of us that knew him, even if not that well, are better people for having had that opportunity. May God's radiant Light ever shine upon Saul.

Dear Jean, Morris, Melinda, Carolyn, Sally and entire related Mintz Family, My heartfelt condolences. This obituary summed Saul up as well as the front page Monroe THE NEWS-STAR newspaper article. Saul was a mentor to me. I have made a memorial contribution in his name to Forsythe Avenue Beautification for one of the Redbud Trees on Forsythe Avenue in the boulevards between 6th and 18th Streets in Monroe. Sincerely yours, Steve Mintz
