Regarding the Sept. 25 column “Death of a true troubadour”: My wife and I were so pleased to read Jim Jenkins’ remembrance of George Hamilton IV.
Fifteen or 16 years ago, just before Christmas, we stopped at the Moravian Church on Hope Valley Road because we had heard there would be singing and celebration. That is when we met and heard George. He stole our hearts with his singing and wonderful testimony. I bought his Christmas CD, and it has become a tradition in our family to listen to it on trips and in our home. It is a wonder that it hasn’t worn out!
Jenkins captured the spirit of the man: gracious, unpretentious and very strong in his faith. And what a performer he was! Every once in a while, over the years, we have heard his voice and have felt blessed any time we did. Thanks for a recollection of a special man.
