Guest Book

We were so blessed to be blessed by his ministry through Jesus Christ.

As A child every time you were on TV I would come running and stand next to the TV and belt out How Great Thou Art and other songs with you it brought joy to my Mother. She said I did that ever since I could walk and talk. Thank You for so willing serving Our Precious Father.

Mr. Shea's baritone voice was second to none. It brought tears to your eyes. What a full life he had. He certainly was a man of God.

Mr. Shea,I want to thank you for your beautiful Hymns you sang,I got to see you in one of Billy Grahams services in el paso texas. Most of all I want to wish you a "Happy Birthday" with all the angels that surround you. February 1st. Love ESTHER.

I loved this man of God. I have always loved the song Just as I Am, when i first
hear it on the Billy Graham crusade. I love you dear brother.

I enjoyed watching the Billy Graham crusade. I have loved George Shea for
a long time. May he rest with our savior. Love you George

My Grandmother had the privilege of accompanying Mr. Shea on the piano during his visit to the Salvation Army senior rest home in Los Angeles Calif. My Grandmother was in her late 80's at the time. He was such a gracious man and such a blessing to all. I can hear him singing praises now and perhaps Elizabeth is playing the piano as well! We have all been blessed indeed!

The first time I heard Bev Shea sing I was a young child and he was at a revival meeting with Billy Graham at Winona Lake IN. What a gift of God they presented to me. More recently I enjoyed their ministry through the Bill Gaither Ministries. What a blessing.
