Mary Mary members Erica and Tina Campbell are mourning the loss of their father, Eddie Atkins. The two thanked fans Wednesday for their prayers as they mourn the loss of their father to cancer.
“Thanks (for) all the kind words & prayers sent today. Our Dad was a great man, but he’s with Jesus now he taught us how to pray & trust God,” the women wrote on their joint Twitter account. “Our hearts are heavy but we can rejoice knowing our father knew we loved him. RIP Elder Eddie A. Atkins Jr. Rest in the arms of Jesus Daddy.”
Sheilah Belle, a radio producer and anchor, revealed that Atkins had passed away after a battle with cancer on Tuesday, June 25, 2013, in Los Angeles.
“Lets keep their family in needed prayer,” Belle tweeted.
