Condolence from Marsha Edwards on September 18th, 2021 12:44 pm

My dear Aunt Rose
Even though I don’t see you often I have the best memories. My Dad loved you so much. I remember playing with my cousins which included Chris. He was fun and a bit shy around me and my sister. I remember there was always music in your house. I am sorry for the loss of your son.
I am sure Grandma Faison has greeted Chris in one of her bear hugs! Love to All
Marsha Faison Edwards

My deepest condolences and sincere sympathy to thee entire family. I’m times like these we need an anchor, so be very sure that your anchor holds and grips the solid rock. That rock is Jesus. Pat Cannon, you’re in my thoughts and prayers. I love you! ❤️

Condolence from Rose Atkins on September 19th, 2021 8:11 pm

Dear family….my heart hurts for Cindy, Rose, and all of our family. I remember Chris from when we were children. I loved his dad Ed, my dad’s cousin, who was larger than life. My dad was the oldest of Jack Atkins sons. Horace was his name, but all knew him as Dee. My mama Thelma played and sang with all those Atkins boys and girls we love. I lost my husband sep 3. God bless you all in this time of grief. Rose (Cookie) Atkins Stalnaker, my brothers Eddie and Roger
