YouTube Clip #39 – Tim Greene, Kim Hopper, and Dean Hopper

Here is a great video shot just 3 days after Tony Greene’s funeral.  A wonderful tribute to their brother and brother in law, respectively.

YouTube Clip #38 – The Singing Greenes

Here is a classic clip of The Singing Greenes.  The first time I saw The Greenes, Amy Lambert was singing with them so it was a treat to find this clip with the 3 siblings together.  I would assume that is their father, Everette, playing the piano.  We will miss you Tony!  I know you and your father must have had a great reunion.

RIP Tony Greene

Dean Hopper has reported that Tony Greene passed away around 4:25 Eastern this afternoon.  Tony had been touch and go in ICU the last several days.  While it’s a sad day for those left behind, Tony is now meeting the Savior he so faithfully sang about face to face.  Please be in prayer for the family, especially for TaRanda and the girls as they face this difficult time.  Rest in peace, Tony.

Tony Greene

Initial reports of Tony’s passing were incorrect.  Tony has been pulled off of the ventilator, but per Dean Hopper, he is breathing on his own.  Please pray urgently!

UPDATE (2:30 PM): Daniel Britt has an audio interview with Dean Hopper here.

Pray For Tony and TaRanda Greene

According to TaRanda Greene’s Twitter, Tony is back in the hospital with signs of rejection of the kidney that TaRanda donated to him not too terribly long ago.  Please pray for the Greenes as Tony undergoes testing to determine the best course of treatment, and for TaRanda’s strength to deal with this latest setback.

SG News Updates

There are a couple of stories out there that are worth following/mentioning:

  • Terah Penhollow has joined Mike and Kelly Bowling, and they have thus changed the group name to The Bowling Family.  Chris Whitaker, who was with the Bowlings, has left the group to be home with an ill family member.  Best wishes to the Bowling Family, and let’s also remember Chris and his family in prayer in dealing with the illness.  Read the story here.
  • TaRanda Greene donated a kidney to her husband Tony.  You can find any updates here, but at last word, both were doing well and the surgery seems to have been a success.  This is a major answer to prayer.
  • The new CD, Reunited, by the Gaither Vocal Band, is now available for pre-order at
