  4. How to say enough about this humble, loving man who was always there from my earliest memories – first as ‘the boy next door’ as we grew up on Glady Fork Road, then my sister’s boyfriend, then my first brother-in-law, and most admired and beloved family member for more than 60 years. He taught us all about seeing the best in people and living by the Golden Rule. Just think about the difference he’s made in so many lives by his example. Love you, dearest Albert. Happy for where you are today and the reunions in Heaven.

  5. Albert was so special in so many ways. I’ll never forget him up there at Glady leading the songs with that big smile on his face….made me wanna shout sometimes just knowing that I was sharing in what he was feeling….the Spirit; you could just always feel that around him. I know there are so, so many people grieving over this great loss….I wish we could just catch a tiny glimpse of the reward he has so faithfully earned. To say he was a “good man” is an enormous understatement. He was always and will always be a blessing to me. I love you all and will be praying for peace💙

  6. My Deepest Condolences to the family of your father/grandfather 🙏🏻for comfort from our Heavenly Father.
