Thank You, My Brother....

It's so easy to take those we love for granted -- those who, we feel, are supposed to just automatically shut THEIR lives down to take on the issues in OUR lives. Reverend, it's been 17 months now, and I STILL remember just how much of a real brother you were to me -- how you, indeed, shut down your own life to see about the kids and me when the Lord took Rev home. You left your queen (my sister) and your family and flew to Mississippi to oversee a beautiful HomeGoing Celebration for my "honey" that will forever live in my memory. You, along with so many other pastors/preachers from across the country reminded me of just how wonderfully blessed I was to have experienced life with "Hartfield" (as you guys called him). Thank you, my brother, for loving my kids in their dad's absence. You've been a wonderful "uncle." Most importantly, thank you for being as close as a biological brother to me. We LOVE You Guys.

My Tribute
by: E. Wayne Gaddis, Jr.

I Love my parents, they have impacted my life all those years of getting on my nerves as a kid with punishments, whoopings, cutting the grass and fried hot dogs. But I guess it all paid off. Because it turned me into a handsome, respectable, and responsible young man.

Love Wayne Jr.

A Tribute to My Pastor
by: Sis. Doris Gaddis

Congratulations on Your Tenth year Pastoral Anniversary.

I have watched you grow in the Lord along this journey and it is amazing to watch God at work. I see how God is maturing you. Thank you for being a gift to the Body of Christ.

The time and work that you have put in; the love that you have for every member, and the patience you have with each member is -- priceless.

I pray God will continue to bless you in all that you do. Remember Proverbs 3:5-6; "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not to thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct they path."

A Tribute to My Husband

I thank God, He has placed you in my life. Besides God and my Father, you have been the only man in my life.

Thank you for being a great Father to my children. A strong man and a role model they can look up to.

God has anointed you for this hour, and you are truly a gift from God. Stay humble and continue the work God has called you to do. Always be the man God called and ordained you to be.

Greater True Light, God has placed a gem among us in the person of E. Wayne Gaddis, Sr.

I pray that you will not take for granted the gift which has been given to us. Pray for him and his family. We pray for you daily.

Wayne, Ashlee, Michelle and E'wayne, I thank God for you. I love you all. My prayer for you is that you do what God has called you to do. Keep your focus on God and do not allow others in your space to blind side you.

Mama, I thank God for you too. Thank you for being there for all of us.

Greater True Light, thank you for all that you have done for Pastor, myself and our family these past ten years.

My Tribute to my Pastor
by: Michelle Gaddis

I thank God for my Pastor and First Lady, and even more for you being my mother and father-in-law. You have accepted me for me, you didn't treat me like an in-law, but like a daughter. If people didn't know I was married into your family, they would never know from the way that you treat me. I love you both dearly and I thank you for always being there for us. You are the greatest.

Love your daughter

A Tribute to My Pastor & Daddy
by: Ashlee Gaddis

I first would like to thank God for blessing me with a double-whammy. Not only is my dad my dad, he's also my Pastor. Many people say "It must suck that your dad is a preacher and that he's your Pastor." Well I beg to differ. When I was younger, yes I did think that it was all bad. But, now that I'm older I appreciate the fact that God gave me a dad and Pastor all in one. It's a blessing to have my dad in my life. There aren't too many people out there my age that can say that their dad is in their life and that he's a man of God. Again, I must say that I'm blessed. The past few years of my life have been challenging for me and my family. But with the prayers of my Mom and Dad God carried me through. No matter what choices I made, right or wrong, my parents still loved me and continued praying. I know this is a tribute to my dad but I can't go on without mentioning my mom. I'm blessed to have a woman like her for a mother. Mommy I Love You!

There was a time in my life where I decided to do my own thing. Didn't care what my parents had to say; I just wanted to do me. And I did. My dad sat me down and he talked to me and there was one thing he said that I could never forget. He said you need to stay in tune with your family, with God, and with yourself. I found that to be very true. When no one else is there, when you are down and out, broke, and going through your season, your family and God will always be there. So whenever you feel that no one is there, God and your family will always be there.

Now daddy, I want you to know that I love you and I appreciate everything that you have done for me. I know it may seem like I don't, but I do. From those awful, painful whoopings to the long lectures. Thank you!!! Thank you for never giving upon me, thank you for your prayers, thank you for your encouragement, thank you for being in my life. Dad you are an awesome man of God, you are a wonderful and beautiful dad, and a great grandfather. Continue to do what you are doing. Do not change for anyone but God. I Love You and May God continue to Bless you and your Ministry.

Love Always

Ashlee "Boo"
