LITHONIA, GA- The viewing for a well known Atlanta Pastor will take place Tuesday. The body of Bishop Eddie Long will lie in state at New Birth Missionary Baptist church at 6400 Woodrow Road in Lithonia, from 11. until 7 Tuesday evening.
Long will lie in repose on Wednesday, January 25 from 8 a.m., until funeral services begin at 11 a.m. at the church. Long passed away at the age of 63 on Sunday, January 15. His cause of death was an aggressive form of gastro-intestinal cancer, diagnosed in the 4th stage. In late 2016 he was hospitalized, and his insiders worked diligently to keep the details of his health condition resigned to his inner circle. His condition was described as a “grave illness” at that time. Later, the Bishop cited a new vegan diet as the cause of his rapid weight loss which left him nearly unrecognizable.
Church officials have not released information regarding who will deliver the eulogy at Long’s funeral.
