      I recently purchased BeBe’s newest album “Cherch.” On that CD, BeBe sang a a very inspiring song with Pop Winans. I could feel the love that BeBe had as his dad came to that taping to sing with his son. I have been inspired by all of the Winans CDs because all of the family seems to be involved.
      I am deeply saddened by the death of Pop Winans, but at the same time I am rejoicing with you knowing that Pop really loved the Lord and expressed that in all of his music and appearances. I know that his death will be a loss to the family, but God knows that he has done what he was supposed to do here on earth.
      To the entire Winans family, please know that the Christian community is praying for you. We know that weeping endures for a night, but your joy will come in the morning. May God continue to bless you and keep you in His care.

      To the Winan family it’s time to celebrate.Pop Winan was such a wonderful man of God.He loved the Lord so much it was well known to all,so I know that,that love was shown to his wife and children.I was shock yet,I rejoice to hear that a soldier has gone home,the real home.What I loved must about Pop Winan,he wasn’t ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.When I would see him on T.V his praise was so orthodox until it could be felt through the T.V..Mom Winan remember the proimse that God gave you in his word “I will never leave you nor forsake you, I’ll be with you until the end of the world”.Hold on to the memories.

      To the Family: Your Father’s ministry will be richly missed. I loved to her him sing. His work down here is finished, He’s going home to get his reward.

      Love and Peace

    17. DEESHA JEFF says:

      To the Winans Family, I am sending prayers for you in your time of lost. I was so very sorry to hear of Pop Winans passing. For many years the Winans have been apart of my life not just through song but through the love that is shown and felt with the Winans as a whole. Pop and Mom Winans were examples to look up to in the gospel and examples to look to as husband and wife. They raised wonderful children in the Lord. Not to sound crazy but I’ve always stated that “CeCe has a best friend and sister that she has never met yet and mom and pop are just my mom and pop too (LOL)” There was a song that I wrote when I lost my pastor that says: IT’S TIME TO GO WELL DONE MY CHILD YOU FOUGHT A GOOD FIGHT, YOU KEPT THE FAITH ALTHOUGH MY HEART LONGS TO SEE YOUR FACE, I KNOW YOUR IN A BETTER PLACE MY ANGEL AND I’LL SEE YOU AGAIN, UNTIL THAT DAY YOU REST ON, YOU REST ON MY ANGEL. (REST ON POP WINANS, YOUR PRESENCE WILL BE MISSED!!!)

      Wow–this is May 1st; I only learned of ‘Pops’ Winans’ passing within the past few days. I knew that Mr Winans was very ill; however, during the month of April, I was very caught up in my life challenges! But, to the point, I have seen Mr and Mrs Winans on TBN so many times–too many to count. I saw the entire family–on tour–in the early 90’s. What a blessing from the LORD!!
      I have BeBe’s cd, CHERCH,; there is a performance from “Pops”. I am thankful to have this cd. I am thankful for the life and the talents that GOD gave to ‘Pops”. To the entire family, I also thank GOD for blessing all of you with such a wonderful inspiration–David “POPS” Winans. He will be missed. May God continue to take care of all of you, especially Mrs Delores Winans.
