Tonight is a very special night for me. I feel God led me to this site. Soon, I will be joining sweet George and it is truly because of him that I'm not afraid. My name is the Lamb's Book of Life because os a song and testimony I heard on tv one night by George.

He humbly told his personal story and it hit my heart and soul. I truly knew at that moment, God was sending me a message through George and I dropped to my knees, tears flowing, and promised God I would turn my life around...and I did, and never went back to the old sinner I was.

If it hadn't been for George, my bags would still be in the closet...all covered in dust...just as my heart covered in sin, but through George's testimony and his singing Just An Old Sinner Saved By Grace, my bags are polished, packed and ready to go.
I want to thank George for helping the Lord save my soul!

I also want to thank sweet Ernie for the deep love and care he took of George. He was constantly at his side...just in case. The last tine George sang Suppetime, I knew how weak he was, and as he was singing, he suddenly turned and started walking to Ernie. Ernie was there in seconds holding George up and calling over and over for a chair. He knelt beside George as all the boys did and bless George, he made it through 1 more time. What a gift! Thank you, Ernie, for the love and care you gave our much loved George, and thank you, George for bringing me back to the Lord.

My husband and I extend to Clara and the children our sympathy, for the loss of George and two of your precious daughters. How wonderful to picture them walking into Jesus's arms and then into George's.

Soon I will meet him and Carl and I both pray we can get seats beside George and sweet Harold Reid when his time comes. We want to hear those two wonderful boom booms surround us!
May God hold and comfort you all until we are all home.
Sincerely,
Carl and Linda Chew-Graetz

George
You and Glenn made a big impact on the lives of my children, my wife and I.
Anytime we traveled we had tapes and CD's of the Cathedrals playing.
I believe that is where my family developed an understanding of 4 part harmony.
My wife and I have sang together at weddings, funerals and worship services.
We have 2 daughters that sing and one of them is married to a Baptist pastor and has made a CD of her own.
I am so very much looking forward to the worship we will have around the throne!!!

Dear George,

What a delight it was to have you and the Quartet to share with us in Ravenna, Ohio each Easter Sunday, for many years. You Gentlemen ALWAYS blessed us and are permanently etched into each of our memories. Great rejoicing is sure to be the rule of the day when we reunite in Glory. We miss you sorely but are confident of the Hope we have in Christ. Comfort, grace and strength to your family.

I was introduced to the Cathedrals gospel music less than two years ago. And I must say, I absolutely love them! It is so apparent those guys truly loved the Lord.

I feel so blessed each and every time I played one of their CD's or DVD's. Rest assured both Glen and George are singing with the heavenly angels. God made them brothers in Christ and now they are forever with Him.

God bless George Younce's family.

Best regards in Christ.

I must agree with a prior post I read that,when I am sad I reach out to gospel music more than I usually do,and it is most(99%)often George Younce.I never met him,but I think my heart knows him like a close brother,through his voice,wisdom of self,humor,and most important his soul-deep conviction of living,walking,singing,sharing the glory of walking with the Lord.
You are missed George,and Thank You for touching my life before you went home to the best supertime of all,and you still touch my life most everyday through recorded music and video.
GOD BLESS YOU!!

I enjoyed him SO very very much. I loved his voice, personality, and warm smile.
I look forward to the opportunity to join him in wonderful praise songs to our Lord and Master when I have the opportunity to cross the Rainbow Bridge.
I'm thankful for the chance to continue to see and hear Mr. Younce on the tapes of the Gaither Homecoming cd's on tv.
He was a wonderful addition.

George spent his whole life sharing his gifts of singing and humor with anyone who would listen. More lives were touched by him than can be counted. Now he is sharing his gifts with The One who gave him the gifts. I'm sure even the angels marvel at his bass voice and laugh at his funny stories. We miss you so much, George....

I still feel George's Presence in his music.

He sure left part of himself when he went HOME.

It was hard to accept, and I was being shelfish to want George here in all his pain.

A true giant of a man. Never to be forgotten.

See you when I get HOME George.

whenever I would be questioning my own faith I will listen to George singing with all his friends on the Gaither gatherings and that would remind me what a wonderful God we all serve. George was definately blessed with the gift of bringing people closer to Jesus through his song.. George, I will be excited to meet you in our Lords house on that day I am called home. Thank you for the memories

No one person has ever blessed the gospel music industry the way George Younce did. His wonderful voice and true dedication to Christ was so apparent each time he sang. Heaven is now resounding with that voice and bursting at the seams with the praise as only George could sing it. If ever there was a name that would always be known when speaking of gospel music, it will be his. The stage seems barren without George Younce, Jake Hess, and the Goodmans.

Lisa, although I only met your Dad once (at your wedding!) I feel like I know him after seeing him so many times on TV, what a wonderful voice! You and Brens should get together sometime (she's still plugging away at Allstate) Take care and write us sometime.

So often I think of George and what a blessing he was (and still is) to my husband and me. No one could ever take his place. When I think of where he is, I can't help but be happy for him. No more illness and being with the Savior Himself. How wonderful that is!!! And think of the friends he is with - Glen in particular. May God bless the family and may they find comfort in knowing what a blessing George was to so many.

George was such a great bass singer and inspiration to so many other bass singers. I always enjoyed the banter that he and J.D. always had. Think what a heavenly quartet is possible now! Jake, James, J.D., Glen, George, Rex, Hovie, Brock, and so many others. God bless them all!!

My heart is just breaking! I did not know of George's passing until I watched a Tribute to him on TV recently. I immediately ordered it! He was the most wonderful man...I just loved him sooo much! May God Bless the family. Knowing the Lord will be the only way you can get thru missing such a wonderful person. I wish I could have know him personally, 'cause he sure was my favorite. I sure will miss him!

I'm so very saddened to just hear of George's passing...I was sitting here listening to the Cathedrals cd's and thought I'd check out Georges' website...Glory he went home to be with the Lord in April and I had no clue...As I'm writing this he's singing "Suppertime"...I can never repay your family for helping my Jim (UPS) get to the cancer research hosp., in Texas...I now live in Florida but I'll never ever forget George, you, and Gina..I still have all the music Gina gave Jim at UPS....George is now with my Jim, Glen, and his Lord....Glory what a blessing George was to all..
God Bless you,

To the Younce Family,
My condolences. George will be missed so very much. I knew him for over 30 years, as I often drove many miles to see and hear the Cathedrals, and last night I went to Rochester and in the hopes of getting to see him to perform, was saddened by the news of his passing. Thank God we will all see him again in heaven. The Gaithers did a beautiful tribute to him in last night's concert. God bless him for his many years of making us smile and feel God's presence in his singing. May God comfort you all. George is in that heavenly choir. A faithful friend,

I just wanted to share a personal story illustrating George's generous, giving spirit.

I have watched and enjoyed him on tv for years. One day while I was going into CVS in Stow, I happened to see him in the parking lot. Feeling like I knew him, I just blurted out "HI George"...and we started talking. That was right after Glen Payne had passed away, and he was so sad about that.

Anyway...after talking for a short time, he went to the car and got a cd of one of his solo albums and gave it to me...I asked him to sign it for me, which he did. I was so excited and touched by his kind spirit and his generosity! He had such a lovely personality...and I felt as though I had known him for years.

My heart goes out to the family and loved ones. I feel blessed to have met him for that brief time.

Mr. Younce was a wonderful entertainer and a great person. He hung on for a long time and can you imagine the choir in Heaven. I bet it is wonderful. Clara and Family, just turn to the Lord. It will be rough for a time but maybe it will get better with time.

To The Younce Family,
My heart was deeply saddened when I learned of Georges passing. I extend my heart felt sympathy to you. Though I always wanted too, I never got the chance to meet George face to face. I always loved his sense of humor. I pulled out one of the Cathedrals VHS the other night after learning of his passing, of course there were some tears, But I could not help but laugh When he sang the Laughing song. Every time I think about that it brings a smile to my face. Love to All, In Christian Love Staci D.

You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your beloved George. Though I knew him only from Gaither videos, it was easy to see what a special person he was. He was a great witness for the Lord, an example of living the Faith, and a hero of that faith to so many who will never forget him.

Dear Younce Family,
George was a true hero of the faith to millions of fans and especially to his family. My heart feels your pain, because I recently lost my dear husband of 51
years. I had put aside the tape of George's recitation of Beyond the Sunset to play at the service of my husband when time came. George's voice brought much comfort to my girls and me.
Love & prayers always,

My Deepest Sympathy to Clara, Gina, Dana, Lisa, George Lane and Tara. May you find comfort in knowing George will live on forever through his music and in the countless hearts and souls he has touched. My life will never be the same because of George's touch and influence. George directed
my path back to the Lord and saved my soul for which I will ever be
greatful. One last "Thank You George," you will live with the Lord in my heart forever.

George will always and foremost
be remembered for his love and faith in the Lord, love and devotion of his family, his friendship and generosity to all he met and of course, his
beautiful, smooth and oh so comforting bass voice. George was a true gentleman in every sense. The world will never be the same
without him. For the past 75 years the world has been a much nicer place because of George W. Younce. Clara and Family please find peace and comfort in the fact that George is still looking over you from Heaven where he will spend Eternity with the Lord.

You all remain in my heart, thoughts and prayers,

TO THE YOUNCE FAMILY, THANK YOU FOR SHARING GEORGE WITH US FOR ALL THESE YEARS. HE WAS A REMARKABLE MAN AND YOU AS HIS FAMILY WAS JUST AS REMARKABLE. HE GAVE US STRENGTH, HUMOR AND LOVE FROM HIS SONGS. MY HUSBAND AND I FIRST SAW THE CATHEDRALS IN THE LATE 70' AT ARLINGTON MEMORIAL BAPTIST CHURCH AND WE WERE HAVING A SNOW STORM. GEORGE SAID,"WE WILL JUST SING ALL NIGHT!" THE CROWD WENT WILD!!!
HEAVEN IS REJOICING NOW AND ONE DAY ALL OF US WILL BE THERE. WHEN WE LISTEN TO GEORGE NOW HIS SONGS WILL BE ALITTLE SWEETER.
OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS WILL CONTINUE TO BE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY IN THE COMING DAYS.

I wanted to express my appreciation to the Younce family for allowing George to come and sing to us and I saw him sing in many cities in the southwest United States. I will never forget my little boy at two years old rocking to George and Glenn singing "Boundless Love" and "Blood Washed Band". On one occasion our son was in his car seat and started singing "Blood Washed Band" and the man at the service station that was washing our windshield, put out his cigarette after hearing that song! George truly loved what he was doing and loved to minister the gospel to all people. We will never forget him and hope to see him in heaven someday!!!

Wow! can you even begin to imagine what " The Gaither Hour " up in Heaven must be sounding like now? with all of God's Precious Singers who have been called and made the Audition? they must be singing songs that even the Angels can't sing, I can just imagine George patting Glenn on the shoulder talking about how he " Loves Old Folks" that brings a BIG smile to our faces when we think about that.
What Blessings George was to us all.
We sincerely Pray God's Blessings on each member of the Younce Family beginning with His Precious Loving Wife, God Bless You All.

Sincerely;

It was our great privilege to travel from Austin, Texas (via automobile) to see George in concert for the first time at Hudson High School .... our family dog-child, age 13, rode in the back seat, smiling puppy smiles and counting the miles. Seeing George perform was the thrill of a lifetime! Due to George's fragile health, we were not able to meet him, but his love and his booming bass voice filled the room, as well as our hearts. It was our delight, too, to have George sing "Wedding Music" (via CD)when we were married last year (a once-in-a-lifetime thrill for this 50-year-old first-time bride!). We look forward to front row seats in Heaven someday to hear George sing for The Master live and in person, and to be able to finally hug his neck! We love you, George!!! Thank you, Younce family, for sharing him with us. Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you - may God give you His comfort, strength and peace. With our heartfelt love, Barney and Joyce Fleetwood and Barnabus Dawg

My sincere condolences to the family on their loss of a great, talented, sincere Christian gentleman!!!! He will be missed greatly.
I attended a graveside service this afternoon and someone had taped and played "Healing" with George singing the first verse after Roger had introduced it. George has, indeed, received his healing!!!! One of the ministers noted that George passed a week ago today! What a timely song!!!

To the family of George Younce.

George was a wonderful singer and person. I have really enjoyed all the tapes and the old records that I have with him singing. He has been such a blessing to me through the years and will continue as I watch and listen to his music.

You are all in my prayers. Ernie, I saw you at the Gaither concert in Dallas, Texas and really enjoy your singing.

My husband, Harold and I would like to let the Younce family know how much we loved George and how saddened we are by his death. We feel like we have lost a member of our own family and are so grateful that we were able to see him with the Cathedrals and also to have so many videos where we can once again hear his booming voice and see his smiling face. I would like to say especially to Genene, his niece, that I am continuing to pray for her, and all the family. May God bless each of you and give you peace and memories you will never forget.

May God bless the Younce family and may He give them the peace that passeth understanding during this time of sadness. What a blessing to know Bro. George is now in the presence of the Lord.
I once took an opinion poll and when asked who was my favorite celebrity, my answer way "George Younce". This was a secular poll and they were not familiar with him. What a loss was theirs not to know him.

I never thought I would meet Bro. George personally, but after a concert at the Parkersburg High Field House, my husband was pushing me in my wheelchair down the handicap "sidewalk". We passed the Cathedral bus very closely. Mrs.Younce and one of her daughters were talking to us. How sweet they were! While we were talking, Bro. George came out the door right beside where I was sitting. I burst into tears and said, "I am going to meet him!" He kissed and kissed my cheek and told me how glad he was to meet ME! What a kind man.
Southern Gospel Music will never be the same without George Younce. Ernie, you have learned much from him, especially his kindness - it shows in all that you do. God Bless.

This is a sad day for us because of Mr. Younces' talent for the Lord, but a great day in Heaven!!I was Georges' "butcher" for many years. He knew my brother Jim who worked for UPS and as also gone to be with the Lord. We loves the Cathedrals and what they stood for. Earth is a sadder place but it is a happier place for the ones in Heaven just to have Mr. Younce present. God be with his family. Our prayers go out to you.
