Myles-Munroe

*A number of stars who were touched by celebrated preacher and business coach Dr. Myles Munroe are expressing their grief after he was killed along with his wife and seven others in a plane crash in the Bahamas.

Actor/director Tyler Perry posted on Facebook Monday, “The poorest person in the world is the person without a dream – Dr. Myles Munroe… No words, just heartbreak. My prayers and thoughts for Dr. Myles Munroe and all aboard that tragic plane crash.”

Pop group One Republic tweeted a tribute to Munroe, writing: “RIP Dr. Myles Munroe… U spoke when I was in college at (Oral Roberts University in Oklahoma) & had a truly profound affect on my life. More than any,” before adding one of his quotes: “The greatness of a man is measured by the way he treats the little man. Compassion for the weak is a sign of greatness – Myles Munroe.”

Gospel singer Yolanda Adams also quoted Munroe on Twitter, adding, “The greatest tragedy in life is not death but life without purpose. Dr. Myles Munroe.”
