  1. Awww! I’m so sorry to hear that. But so pleased to know she is now with our Lord.

    I remember watching her on GMT (Gospel Music Television) on Sky Angel. Many years ago with my mom. Watching her have such passion as she sang with her husband.

    What a legacy she left behind!


  2. What a wonderful gift God gave us all thru you, Priscilla. We will never forget you and want to hear you sing again someday in heaven!

  3. I’m so sad to hear that, but grateful that she is free from her suffering. What a blessing she was to so many. My prayers are with her family and those who love her.

  4. My condolences to the McGruder and McDonald families. Priscilla was an icon of faith and inspiration to those of us who knew her and to all who heard her minister through song and those who read her book.
