Whitney Bates shares a sad update with fans.
In a new post on Sunday evening, Whitney revealed that her dad has passed away. She shared a few photos from her vow renewal when her dad was by her side. In her post, she wrote:
“Around 2:00 am Saturday morning, Daddy went to be with Jesus. There has never been a better, more loving, more forgiving, happier, Christ honoring father than my dad, JC Perkins. He loved me and mama more than anything in this world. Zach and our kids (his grandkids) were also the apple of his eye. Anyone that knew him, knew that he loved Jesus and his grand babies more than life itself. And if you know our story, you know that this picture is from one of the most special days we shared together. We miss him more the words can describe and my heart is absolutely shattered. But no matter how much it hurts us all here, he is where he has wanted to be since the day that he walked down from the choir with tears streaming down his face to give his life to Christ.”
She closed her post, revealing how she’s feeling, and wrote, “We’ve never hurt like this before, but I know that God is with us and that my Dad is healed.”
She also thanked her followers for all of their kind messages and for praying for the whole family.
