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.

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.

As a young child, I remember my mother listening to his wonderful music. One song particular is "How Great thou art". My dad was not a Godly father, but he loved to hear him sing this. I know he has a front row seat with his heavenly father above. My sympathy is with his family. Grief not for we know he is in Paradise tonight.
