WEtvsMaryMaryRenewedforSeason3PhotoCreditCourtesyofWEtvGOSPELflava joins the rest of the world in prayer for Erica and Tina Campbell and the rest of the Atkins family in the loss of their father, Elder Eddie A. Atkins Jr. . Fans were given an inside look into the Campbell-Atkins family during the last two seasons of their weTV reality show, “Mary Mary”.  Mr. Atkins was battling cancer at the time of his death.

Mary Mary has released a statement saying:

“Our dad was a powerful man. Our family had it’s challenges but our love superseded it all. We had the opportunity to profess our love for our father. We were able to tell him how much we loved him, valued him, and how much life had helped us to understand the things that we couldn’t for many years. Our dad was a man of immense physical and spiritual strength. He always covered us in prayer. He warned us when hardships were coming, taught us how to pray through, fight on, and overcome life’s challenges. What better gift can a man give his family. Our family prayed and thanked God for our dad’s life and healing on Monday night and God chose to give him the ultimate healing on Tuesday afternoon, which was a transfer from life on earth to life in Heaven. God sent him out better than we ever could’ve imagine and for that, we will be forever grateful. We love our daddy dearly, respect him highly, and will remember him always.”
