Dear Atkins Family,
I wish I could be present to celebrate the life of Fr. Atkins. He was my parish priest during my formative, teenage years in Hollywod Florida, as a member of St. Andrews. I am currently a priest in the Diocese of Los Angeles. I do believe he was instrumental in my decision to accept my call to ministry.
My prayers are with you and may God's grace embrace you and give you peace.
The Rev. Zelda Miller Kennedy
