So sorry for the loss of a dear dear friend of mine. He was a ray of sunshine and a true inspiration to myself. He always wore a smile and was always on fire for the Lord. He helped everybody and anybody he could. He will surely be missed by so many. Heaven most definitely gained an angel. He is singing in the choir with the angels and oh the sound I still can hear when he sung songs. He truly touched my life and so many others. May God comfort the family at this grevious time and may the Lord wrap his ever loving arms around you and give you peace.

I will never forget in the year 2000, when we met Eddie Lee and the Anointed at a little country church in Morgantown, WV. What an anointing , power of God on this man and group!! My husband was saved!! During the next several yrs we followed them to several different events. I will never forget all the wonderful times we had together and all the people that were saved under you, Bro Eddie!! What an anointed man of God!! You will always hold a special place in our hearts and I know you will be missed by alot of people. We are praying for you Marsha and the rest of the family. We love you all!

Eddie was one of the best friends I ever had. We grew up together and he was like a brother to me. Every summer I couldn’t wait for him to come over on the weekends , we walked and talked so much. Told each other everything. He always was happy and smiling and love to laugh. I will miss not seeing you or hearing that laugh it truly breaks my heart that your no longer here. I will miss you oh so very much Eddie love you bunches!!!
