I will miss him even though he eventually moved too far away for me to visit his store. He was the jewelery by which I guaged every other jeweler. What a nice man.

Our family will miss him. He has been 'our jeweler' since we moved here in 1990. He spent time with each customer, sharing in our family stories about the jewelry & sharing stories of his own, as well as his faith. We are praying for the family.

Deepest sympathy & respect to the family. I would travel from Alaska back home to let only Mr. Akins work on my jewelry.
