My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time. May God comfort you as only He can. Mr Al & I worked at the Sumner County Food Bank together and talked about New Jersey. I am sure he and my Daddy, Andrew Higgins are reunited and enjoying rejoicing around the throne of God together. My very deepest condolences.

So sorry for your loss. Bro. Jernigan and I worked at the Sumner County Food Bank together. He was such a very special man. I always enjoyed working with him.

I loved Al Jernigan. He was my spiritual brother. We enjoyed time together; doing simple things. Just laughing and sharing life stories. He was kind and gentle. He mirrored God’s grace. I never felt the details of our lives were nearly as important as the condition of our hearts. A true kinship. I will miss Al because there are so few men like him. He is home now. For that I am excited and grateful. But I will miss my brother. Thank you, Hilda for allowing me to have that beautiful friendship.

Al always had a big, ready smile, and a twinkle in his eye. He knew business but knew how to and loved to laugh. He was an encouragement to me and a Christian friend. He was always around church and very involved until he physically couldn't be.
Fond memories! My prayerful condolences to Hilda and the family.
