It is a Blessing that we have two wonderful
men living in our are that have no blemish on their records. Billy and George will go down in history as heros of God's Calling. Thank you for your ministry. You helped lead me down the straight path and my husband and I raised our son to follow your words of the Lord and it has paid off. God Bless.

I am very proud of Mr Shea and the whole Graham family. It was my honor to sing for Mr. Shea at the opening of Carolina's Stadium (now Bank of America) back in the 90's. Happy Birthday Mr. Shea!

I really expected to see some national media coverage of this celebration. I guess it wasn't momentous enough.
My father was a student at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago at the same time Mr. Shea was there singing, hosting and announcing on WMBI radio. Dad would have been 104 last October.
