It’s been a sad day for me since learning about the passing of one of my friends and heroes in Gospel music. Norman Wilson, the original and only tenor for the Primitive Quartet, went home to Heaven yesterday while on a hunting trip.
I became acquainted with Norman in the 1980’s, but it wasn’t until about 5 years ago that I really got to know this gentleman. His smile was always his trademark and he was always full of wit and ready for a laugh. There was never a dull moment with Norman around, but it was his love for The Lord that always astounded me. It didn’t matter what manner of conversation we were having, we eventually would start talking about the Lord and just how good God had been to us.
I’ve been privileged to spend time with Norman at my home church and also on the road as well and he was always the same. Heaven sure gained a treasure yesterday and I have no doubt that there he now is smiling like he never did before in the presence of Jesus. Our hearts can’t begin to comprehend all that he is seeing now as he has finally made it to his eternal resting place.
As my tribute to this fine gentleman, I leave you with this signature song of his, “My Hope Is In The Blood”….amen!!!
