What a wonderful man that God has used to lead others to Christ. I am glad that I grew up at a time when men, such as Mr. Shea and Dr. Graham, proclaimed clearly the Word of God. Mr. Shea's voice was so clear and smoothing. I love to hear him sing. BBN plays a lot of his songs. Thank you to his family for sharing this man of God with us.

What an inspiration! I was blessed to hear "How Great Thou Art" while the thunder was truly rolling in Buffalo. See you on the other side.

I would like to give my respects to George Shea. Even though I didn't know him personally. I understand he was a beautiful singer of hyms and such. I just would like you to know George reminds me of (1 Chorn. 29:28)how as David, George too died at a " Good old age, Satisified in days." I can believe he did live a happy life and brightened peoples lives with his wonderful voice. May you come to see the person he was and remember him for this.

Condolances to the family and all friends. How Great Thou Art was well written, and was well sung.....everytime. So much life and energy at 100+ certainly redefines ''growing old''. R.I.P. Mr. Shea.

George was an enigma. I know I grew up hearing him and Billy Graham, and I know a lot of others did too. I will not consider it a loss that he is gone, but a pleasure having had him in our lives for so long.

I grew up listening to Billy Graham Crusades, my Mother had the TV turned all the way up every time it was on. They still show the Billy Graham Classics on TBN and I love watching them. That group of Christian men changed the world for millions. Mr. Shae had a voice that was big part of the success of the Crusades. "How Great Thou Art" was Mr. Shae's song and he sang it with the Holy Spirit flowing out his voice. He was a great Christian Man and an inspiration to many. His voice will never be forgotten and "How Great Thou Art" will never be performed the same by anyone. God Bless the family and I will see Mr. Shae singing in Heaven one day.

The homecoming must have been something else and he is now singing in person to the One he served on earth. Mut'na (thank you) George Beverly Shea for sharing your voice with us.

He was a gift from God to people the world over. The personal welcome by Jesus to his heavenly home must have been something that words would have been inadequate to describe.

Christ's love shone in this gentle man's eyes, smile, heart and wonderful voice! I am 62 years old, and I've listened to him, alongside Billy, for decades, beginning as a young girl, surrounded by my family in our living room. His singing was a sermon in itself! Such warmth and love he put into it! What an amazing blessing he has been to millions, myself just one of them! Though I never met him, I still felt a love and deep thankfulness for him. He had a special place in my heart. I've always loved his "I'd Rather Have Jesus,"...and oh, he does... for eternity!! Prayers for comfort for his family. I feel a "missing," and I know yours is great. But I, also, know there is rejoicing in heaven over the homecoming of this saint! What singing there!! God bless you.
