Dear Sister Garner, Brother George, and Family,
Frances and I send our deepest love and sympathy to you all at the death of Brother Albert. He was more than brother in Christ and fellow minister to me. He was truly a friend and confidant to both me and Frances. He will be missed. But, we praise the Lord that he is in the presence of our Lord and King.

To the Garner Family,

Dear Sister Janice and Brother George Garner,

The honor was mine to know Dr. Albert Garner. Believe it or not I was his pastor for a short time in Lakeland when Meadowlawn MBC was still in existence. I had the privilege in Daytona at the ABA meeting a little over a year ago to have a long talk with him. What an honor that was. May God comfort and give you His richest blessings is our prayer.
Sincerely, Jim and Gail Jones, Texarkana, TX

Dr. Bill Pennell

Sister Garner, Brother George, and Family:

I am so honored that I came to know personally a great man, Dr. Albert Garner, whose books filled my library and whose Sunday School lessons were taught, way before I met him. I was honored and humbled to have him in the audience on several occasions when I preached, the last being the graduation last May, of the Florida Baptist College. He was honored that evening for his outstanding work for the college and for all of the ABA.
We are in Ukraine and cannot come there or attend the funeral, but our prayers and the prayers of many Ukrainian Baptist are for you. Our loss is Heaven's gain, and surely he left us large steps and the right path to walk in. They all lead us to Jesus. He will be missed by everyone, but especially you the family. God bless you and please know that you are loved and prayed for my thousands.

What a great joy it was to know Bro. Garner and consider him a friend - yet more than a friend. Sis. Phillips so wanted to come to the funeral knowing that Bro. Garner made a special trip to honor us at Bro. J. O. Phillips funeral. Sis. Phillips want you to know that Bro. Garner was a great friend to the Phillips family and to Glendale Baptist Church. His presence will be missed on this earth but his presence is surely known in heaven today. You all are always in our prayers. Know this...you have friends who love you in South Carolina.

Sister Garner, Brother George, and Family,
I extend my deepest sympathy to each of you in your great loss. Dr. Garner was a very special friend of my dad, Jesse Shepard, and a special friend of mine. He was an inspiriation and an example for all. We shall miss him in our midst but his legacy and influence will continue on. God bless each of you in this great hour of need.

Bro. John Nations

I just wanted to pay my respects to the late Bro. Garner. I have admired him and his work from afar for many years. The last time I spoke with him was in Daytona Beach in 2006. I bought three of his books and he signed them for me. Today the books are dearer than ever. God give us the grace to serve long and effectively as did he. My prayers are with the family he leaves behind. God bless.

Dr. Albert Garner was a great man of God whose unusual abilities brought blessings to thousands. As an educator, writer and compassionate minister he is unexcelled in his generation. I am happy I was privileged to visit with him in June in Tulsa. May the Lord richly bless all of you in this difficult time.
