To the entire Daniels family, my name is David A. Sanders and I live in North Little Rock, Arkansas. I am a member of the Arkansas First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction and the Holy Temple Cathedral Church Of God In Christ, Inc . I wish to express and extend my deepest condolences, sincere sympathies, and prayers to all of you during this time of bereavement and loss of our beloved Bishop Sedgwick C. Daniels. I first met Bishop Daniels when he and I both were heading to use the restroom at the International Holy Convocation on official day and we both were dressed in our full ceremonial attire and we both laughed at each other as we struggled with pulling up the layers of our robe garments to free ourselves to adequately use the restroom....LOL ! We had a hilarious conversation about it and we then returned to the worship service both feeling refreshingly grateful and relieved! I met him a second when he along with the General Board came to Arkansas and to our church and Jurisdiction headquarters at the death of our late beloved Bishop L. T. Walker Sr. I voted 🗳️ for Bishop Daniels EVERY SINGLE TIME he ran for a seat on the General Board! He will be missed but NEVER FORGOTTEN! I ordered BOTH his books 📚 today online! God bless you all and with great anticipation we will see Bishop again some glad morning when this life is over! God bless you all!

Greetings Supervisor Danels-Carter,

My sincerest condolences to you, the Daniels family, and Holy Redeemer COIGIC. I enjoyed watching Bishop Daniels on Sundays and whenever I had a chance, I called his daily prayer line. I so admire such a true Man Of God and will miss his unadulterated preachig, singing, and, of course, his dancing. May God continue to comfort your hearts, give you strenght, and know that

Bishop Daniels received his reward from work to glory.

Prayers and blessings,

Dear Daniels Family,

I would like to extend my deepest condolences upon hearing about the passing of the honorable Bishop Sedgwick Daniels. He was someone I held in high regard, especially considering the times I had the privilege to witness his accomplishments, such as the opening of the Prayer Tower and The Orphanage. One particular memory that stands out to me is when I had the great honor of speaking in the Men's Forum during his Holy Convocation. It was a remarkable experience, as I discussed what women value most in their leadership.

From that moment on, Bishop Daniels treated me with utmost respect and we formed a lasting friendship. One of the qualities I admired most about him was his approachability and humility. Whenever we conversed, his words were always positive and meaningful. He truly was an exceptional leader in his own right.

During this difficult time, my thoughts and prayers are with all of us who hold Bishop Daniels near and dear to our hearts. May God provide comfort and solace to his loving and supportive family.

With heartfelt blessings,

Dr. Diana Chandler Banks,

Supervisor Emerita

Associate Justice, Judiciary Board

Maryland Central Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction

I was saddened to read about the demise of Bishop Sedgwick Daniels on 12 Nov 23. Bishop Daniels impacted my pastoral ministry after he was elected to the Presidium of the Church of God in Christ in November 2007 in Memphis, TN. He gave me the warmest embrace one could render to another clergyperson. Thereafter, Bishop Daniels always greeted me with kindness and a gentle embrace. Bishop Daniels, I believe you are at rest in glory. I will see you in the morning.

Auxiliary Bishop Albert J. Mays, Jr.
