Caesar: "Daddy Harold, I will see you again!"

|Pastor Shirley Caesar-Williams|
A capacity crowd filled the pews and every available chair of Raleigh’s 1500-seat Mt. Calvary Word of Faith today (July 12) for the second and final day of “Celebration of Life” services for Bishop Harold Ivory Williams.
During the joyous four-hour service, a host of clergy tributes were interspersed between uplifting musical numbers by the combined choirs of the Washington, DC’s Greater Mt. Calvary Holy Church. Bishop Terence Sykes and Pastor Frenchee Wiggins each rendered hymn solos. Sykes’ a cappella rendering of “Great is Thy Faithfulness” gave rise to the morning’s first sanctuary-wide praise frenzy.
|Elder Hope Mason|
Elders Marc and Hope Mason and Pastor Shirley Caesar-Williams also fondly remembered their beloved with family tributes. Hope spoke first, sharing warm memories of “Daddy,” followed by her husband, Marc. Pastor Caesar then gave reflections of “Daddy Harold,” as she lovingly called him, and expressed deep gratitude before bursting into dance and minutes later, the chorus of “He’s Working It Out For You.” At least twice, she addressed Bishop Williams directly and with admiration, declaring, “Daddy Harold, I will see you…I will see you again!” and, in her final words before leaving the pulpit, “We remember you, Daddy Harold.”
Additional expressions of sympathy were acknowledged from The Clark Sisters, Bishop T.D. Jakes, President Obama, and others.
Archbishop Alfred Owens, Jr., Presiding Prelate of MCHCA and spiritual son of Bishop Williams, delivered the eulogy.
