Mary Mary, the dynamic gospel duo responsible for uplifting people around the world, need the favor returned.

Sisters Erica and Tina Campbell mourn the loss of their father, Eddie A. Atkins Jr., who died of cancer Tuesday. The father of eight, appeared on his daughters’ hit WEtv reality series, Mary Mary, where he attended one of his daughter’s wedding and came up in conversation several times about marriage and family. 

The singers of hits, like “Heaven” and “Go Get It,” thanked their fans for the prayers and support. “Thanks 4 all the kind words & prayers sent today. Our Dad was a great man, but he’s with Jesus now he taught us how to pray & trust God,” they tweeted on their joint twitter account. “Our hearts are heavy but we can rejoice knowing our father knew we Loved him RIP Elder Eddie A Atkins Jr. Rest in the arms of Jesus Daddy..”

Mary Mary is currently on a recording hiatus as a duo, as Erica Campbell launches her solo career. Her single “Just A Little More Jesus” was released on iTunes June 25.
