Re: Carroll McGruder near death

I remember hearing them singing "I'm Just Warming Up" at general conference in the early eighties.

Re: Carroll McGruder near death

This has just been posted on FB:

Our God is Faithful.

Tonight at 10:40, we have witnessed the promotion of our beloved Carroll McGruder, to his eternal reward. He so aptly penned the lyrics to THE GREAT HOMECOMING; today they are relevant to him.

He made his transition peacefully in his own bed with family gathered around. His family and friends from around the world have held him and us in continuous prayer these past days. He expressed several times how he could "feel" that support.

We thank each of you for your calls, texts, and other expressions of concern. We will all miss this great man of God immensely and ask for your continued prayers as we begin a new phase of life without his counsel, presence, and support.

Our hope is in the witness that Carroll has left us. He received his reward, and we are resolved to go where he is.

Blessings,

The Carroll McGruder Family

Bishop McGruder's influence in Southern Gospel music will be missed, but his music will live on...

I have videos I made of them in Nova Scotia in the late 90's singing at camp meeting and preaching. Had a blast.

OH my goodness! That is where I heard them sing! Guess we were both there... lol! I was just a teenager then but we really enjoyed being there to hear them sing!

Will be praying for the family, it is so sad to lose both of them to cancer.

Re: Carroll McGruder near death

Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

There is an old man coming down the road for each one of us. The best wecan do is give God everything.

Praying for his family.
