When I was little, I always looked forward to visits from Uncle Henry & Aunt Frankie. Uncle Henry was a kind, loving and giving soul who will be dearly missed by all who had the good fortune of knowing him. Aunt Frankie, keep your faith in God; He will carry you through this difficult time.

Mr. Atkins was a fine man, a great neighbor, a good friend and a wonderful teacher of things that matter in this life. He taught me many things through his words and his actions. He is a saint. I miss him, yet look forward to seeing him again. - Mark Wallace Maguire

My husband and I will always remember our time as Mr. and Mrs. Atkins neighbors as a sweet and wonderful time in our life. He was a wonderful Christian and a great man. We missed him already, but we will miss him even more now that we know we won't see him again until we reach heaven. Prayers will be lifted for Iris and all who loved him.

Uncle Henry has won the victory in Jesus, and we who remain here mourn only for the loss of his presence with us. He worked hard, he kept the faith in Christ, and he was devoted to his wife and extended family. May we all heed his example. 'The eternal God is our refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.'
