On Her Father Calling Him "Perfect"
|Taylor And Eddie Long|
"I love you Dad. Thank you for being perfect. I cherish every moment I've shared with you even up to your last breath. I don't blame God for wanting you back, I would too.
Everything I do is for you, it's been my honor to be your daughter. Thank you for being the greatest example of a wonderful father and husband.
You kicked cancer's ass! Job well done my angel," she wrote in a post on Instagram with a photo of her father during his sickness on Sunday.
"My heart is heavy, but God is in control. See you in the rapture Bishop Eddie Long. It was my honor to serve New Birth for 12 years," he wrote.
New Birth announced the death of their leader in a statement Sunday morning, saying he died after "a gallant private fight with an aggressive form of cancer."
His wife of 27 years, First Lady Elder Vanessa Long, also shared some of her thoughts, which were included in their church's initial statement.
"I am confidant through my belief in God that my husband is now resting in a better place," Vanessa Long shared. "Although, his transition leaves a void for those of us who loved him dearly, we can celebrate and be happy for him, knowing he’s at peace."
Our condolences go out to his family, friends and church community during this difficult time.
