The dynamic Duo Mary Mary are experiencing a loss of the worse kind; their father have passed away from complications associated with Cancer.
Erica and Tina of the gospel group, ‘Mary Mary’ are mourning the loss of their father. The duo lost their father Mr. Eddie Atkins Jr., to cancer. The two confirmed this information on Twitter while thanking their fans for the support and their concern.
They tweeted the following:
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. 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.
WEtv released the following statement,
“Eddie Atkins, Erica and Tina’s loving father is considered the strongest male member of the family and patriarch. As their father and a community leader & youth minister, Mr. Eddie laid the foundation for Erica & Tina’s broad reaching musical platform that allows them to deliver their brand of gospel music not just to the church but to the masses regardless of their walk of life & spiritual understanding. Mr. Eddie still serves as a stable & loving force in the lives of his children and grandchildren. He has been married and divorced from their mother, (Thomasina “Honey” Atkins), three times and some think a fourth try at marriage isn’t out of the question.”
Let’s keep their family in our thoughts and prayers!
