    Family, we are so sorry to not be able to attend, it saddens me each time I think of Sidney. I recall his smile, laughter, how he enjoyed joking, I enjoyed being around my cousin. So I weep with each of you weeping may endure for a night but Joy God's Great Joy does come in the morning. Prayers are still being prayed for each of you. Love...Alberta, Deborah and Lisa

    It is with great sadness that I hear of Sidney's homegoing. It was always a joy to visit Jacksonville and to spend time with the Aatkins family. We begin to remember not just that he died but that he lived and his life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. Although death separates us from one another in body and spirit..Sidney will always remain alive in your hearts... Hold onto the memories because they last a lifetime. To Sidney... Rest in Heavenly peace because I'm sure Alfred Lee, was waiting to greet you at the gate and welcome you to your Heavenly Home. Behave up there.To The ADKINS FAMILY I love you all and praying for your continued strength IN THE LORD. TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART.

    We are saddened to know you are grieving the recent loss of your loved one. May you find comfort in the words found in Psalms 34:18 which reads: “ Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15 Isaiah 55;11). See and imagine yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
