Wow! It's been a year already. Maurice I'm sure you have formed at least a 500 voice choir in Heaven by now. As a matter of fact, you all are probably being nominated for your 1st Grammy (smile). You will always be missed.

To the Culpepper Family,
I recently learned of Maurice's passing away and had to send a word of comfort. Maurice and I met in 1972 at Georgia State University and later worked together at BellSouth. He was a joy. His laughter and love of music was contagious. We'd sit around the break room and he'd break out in song. Such precious memories. May knowing that he is with the Savior sustain you now and into the feature.
December 24, 2012
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

I am just finding out about this..I am so glad that Maurice was a part of my life. Our love was mutual. His light of Christ in him shined brighty all of the time thru his smile and his contributions to the Kingdom. Cathedral of Faith choir was his heart and he loved the Greer family and each and every member of the body. Tina, Maurice was the love of your life and you his, cherish all of the memories of good times shared.May the blanket of comfort that the Holy Ghost provides be all around you..Nanine You KNOW how Maurice loved you. Abundant Blessings... Pastor ElTyna McCree Oakland, Calif.
December 14, 2012
My prayers and thoughts are with Tina and the family. Growing up at Cathedral and being a part of everthing that associated me with the Showers of Blessing was a true blessing. I just didn't know Maurice as a choir director or minister of music, I knew him as the person behind those titles. I knew the man who was very humbled in everything he did. The The man who loved Tina dearly. The man who always saw me as the little girl from church that ran around church giving everybody in the Showers of Blessing Choir a hug. The man who will truly be missed by us all. I thank God for the years of knowing him. Maurice was and forever will be one of a kind.

December 13, 2012
Maurice was nothing shy of a real brother and friend in my life. I remember when Sam Henderson introduced me to Maurice for the purpose of playing for Cathedral of Faith COGIC and the Showers of Bleasings Choir aka "Showers." I began playing for the church and choir when John Askew became ill and passed away. As time went on, I realized how much Maurice loved the Lord, gospel music and every member of the Showers of Blessings choir. As the saying goes "they don't make'em like that anymore," Maurice was clearly a unique person, friend and brother to those who truly knew him. My brother will be sorely missed in the natural but ALWAYS remembered. I'm grateful to the Lord for allowing me to meet one of His special hand-crafted human beings. To Tina, Naniene, Vicki and Brynyale - let peace and love continue to guide your steps. Much love...
December 13, 2012
My condolences go out to the Culpepper family. May the God of comfort, strengthen your family during this time.-1Cor.1:3,4

"You aint singing nothing" is what Maurice used to mouth to me from the podium while directing the Showers of Blessings choir. He knew that I was pantomiming because I was trying to save my voice to do lead vocals for the next song! He used to crack me up! I have known and loved Maurice since I joined the choir in my early 20s...he loved my mama(Constance Small) and he will be severely missed not just by me but by all who REALLY knew him!!
December 10, 2012
To the Culpepper family and love ones, I met Maurice many years ago at BellSouth and he was great person to be around and never dull moments. His singing would uplift you and your spirits. May God Bless You All

December 08, 2012
It was during my years of singing with Showers of Blessings - under the direction of the incomparable, legendary, and iconic Maurice Culpepper - that I fully understood how someone so masterful could be so humble. Although he was known by thousands, when Maurice spoke with you, he had a knack for making you feel as though you mattered. He reminded us to be constrained by the gospel that we sang and to be committed to the God whom we sang about. He was a true gift to the Body of Christ, and even across the miles, yet do I miss him. My prayers are with Tina, his siblings, and the rest of his family.

My sincere prayers go out to the wife & family of Dr. Mauice for your loss. The comfort I have is in knowing that the bible tells us, "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord!" I met Dr. Maurice many years ago through my brother, Marc Harris, a dear & close friend. He automatically became a part of our family and down through the years I would see him at weddings, music/recording projects he and my brother worked on together, etc. He was always happy to see myself and/or one of my siblings, nieces/nephews. I will always remember his laughter and smile and how he brought joy and laughter to our hearts. May God be with you all as you celebrate this wonderful man of God's life. Truely the Atlanta community and the world will miss his talents. Well done!!!

Tina and Family,

My heart is heavy even as I pray for your strength and comfort. Tina, you and Maurice were an extended part of our family when we lived in Atlanta. When Maurice consented to be Brandon;s godfather, I knew he was a man of God that would provide a legacy of godly love and wisdom that Bran could embrace. Distance may have separated us, but you all remained in our hearts and prayers. Know that we love you! We are praying for you! And that we are assured that God will be your strength and comfort.

To the Culpepper Family!
Please accept my sincere condolences. Maurice had such a wonderful spirit. He will truly be missed. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed "learning" from him at choir rehershal at New Piney Grove Missionary Baptist Church. He just had a way of "lifting me up" - when he didn't even know that he was. You have suffered a loss, but Maurice is definitely - not lost! He is with our Lord & Saviour. God bless you, All!

December 04, 2012
It was an honor to be in his "anointed" presence. I felt as if I knew him personally. On the other hand, I did, since we are all Brothers and Sisters in Christ. I wish he could have taught my God-children that it's not in the riffs and stuff (all good), but the anointing makes the difference. He was gifted, called, chosen, anointed and apointed to his purpose, and it came with a lot of Godly discipline. My prayers with the wife and family.
December 04, 2012
My prayers are with ther family during thi transitional period. Maurice was one of the most vibrant, talented directors I have ever known.

I have known Maurice, and sang with him in choirs off and on, for more than 20 years. He was a gifted, talented, dedicated and funny child of God. My condolences to the Culpepper family, especially his wife. Losing a mate is one of the hardest things to face in life. But know, Maurice is with the Lord, directing one of the heavenly choirs. He would have it no other way! Be Blessed in your time of bereavement and find JOY in knowing that he is safe in the arms of Jesus.

I had truly hoped this news of Maurice's passing was a hoax. One of the most talented persons I have had the pleasure to know both in the musical setting and professional worklife at the Bell. Now a bell of a different toll rings and he has served his time, well. I bid him farewell onto the new journey and know that he will truly be missed here on earth and welcomed into his new home, so earned by his actions of reverence.
