I remember when i was engaged to the late Bishop Eddie Cumbo back in 1998, Deacon Davis and Rev Davis were good friends to my husband and I. We had some disagreement but it was one thing about those 3 men served the true and living GOD. they were not ashamed to say if they were ever in wrong disagreement they would say so. My husband cared so much for Deacon Hertis until he has him stand up for him at our wedding; and i remember Deacon Davis said to Cumbo * you think enough of me to be your best man in your wedding* I would be honor to do so. And he never did ask about what he had to spend OR NOTHING. The 3 of us were friends to the END OF THEIR LIVES. I LOVED YOU MY FRIEND. CONTINUE TO TAK...E YOUR REST. SO YOU WILL BE READY TO GO INTO THE PEARLY GATES. I PRAY I MEET YOU ALL THERERead more
