I only knew Mr. Atkins for a few nights while we helped with his care in Colorado, but I was blessed by his beautiful gentle spirit. It was an honor to spend time with him. Sending out thoughts and prayers to his family.

We have known Bill & Ruth since 1982 when we met Ruth and their daughter Alison in Monte Carlo. An everlasting friendship began when Ruth invited us to duck hunt in Louisiana and we met Bill for the first time in Shreveport. It was a blind date! We loved him right away and we shall miss him dearly. Our condolences and love to Ruth and the family.

Thank you for providing her with a wonderful working environment. She will miss Mr. Atlkins whom she always referred to as a 'fine man'. May God sustain you in these hard times.

Mrs Atkins, am so sorry to hear about Mr Atkins. I don't know if you remember me or not, I worked for Delta Airlines and you used to bake me cookies and bring them to the airport. I was and am good friends with Delton Harrison. Sorry I could not be there today, you are in my thoughts and prayer's. God Bless, Jimmy Goff-Addison, Texas.
