All of us at SGN Scoops were saddened to hear of the passing of Carroll McGruder last night.
His death was reported on the Facebook page of close friend Beverly McManus. On September 14, she wrote:
“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.
The Carroll McGruder Family”
Our prayers and condolences to Carroll’s wife Sharon, their children and the family and friends of Carroll McGruder.
