After the news surfaced that Bishop Eddie Long had passed, his daughter Taylor took to IG to share a beautiful tribute to her “perfect” dad.
“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 Sunday with a pic with her dad.
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.”
He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Vanessa Long, his four children and three grandchildren.
“I am confidant through my belief in God that my husband is now resting in a better place. 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,” Vanessa Long said in a statement.
