I never met him but I I was privileged to have been friends with his daughter Barbara McGinnis.
Dearest Grandpa:I will forever hold our times and life experience in my heart. You and Helen brought so many joy filled experiences to our lives. Just to mention a few; Christmas trees so decorated they seemed to be from a magazine, the way you both organized the day from 5:30 am till 9:00 pm, with so many things to do and places to be, and so much love in your gentle voice and your fast wit. I love you Pops, so much. I thank God I was able to visit with you these last few years. You were the first person to teach me how to fillet a fish, tend a garden and value beauty and dignity by example. May God welcome you into your heavenly home. Until we meet again, hugs.
You were a great uncle and husband to my Aunt Helen. Childhood memories will forever be in my mind. You always made us feel welcome. Rest in peace Uncle Albert Sojourner. Know Aunt Helen is with you now.
You were my father-in-law by marriage but you were always more like a dad to me. You were certainly an amazing man in everything that you did. You went through a lot of loss and heartache through the loss of some of your precious loved ones, but your strong faith and your love for the Lord kept you going. You were certainly blessed with a long life and your family will certainly miss you and all of the fun times that we had, but the Lord called you home as your work on earth was done. We will always love and miss you, but you will always be in our hearts. All my love, Terica
You always made me feel loved I’ll miss you rest in peace
He was one of a kind and we will miss him so
Rest In Peace Albert. I know you are thrilled to be with Jesus now. Save us a place . We will all be there soon. You will be greatly missed by so many. You are loved by so many.See you soonPhyllis rhea
To the Loving family of Mr. Albert. My boys Trey and Joshua and myself are so saddened to hear of Mr. Albert’s passing. We know that he is in GOD’S Loving card and Grace now walking on the streets of gold with Mrs. Helen and all his other Loved ones. Prayers go out to Mr. Albert’s family and friends.
What can be said but rest in peace my brother, you and the LORD have had a long, blessed ride here and accomplished much work for the Kingdom. Prayers for Brother Albert's family, and the many, many friends he has made in life. We shall meet again in Heaven my good friend. Job well done, time for you to go do some praising face to face with the LORD now. We talked about that many time in the back yard and during worship service. Love in Christ. RIP
