  3. CandleImageDear Lampkin family,

    I did not know Albert personally but I know his daughter Beverly. Through her stories of him, I feel like I know him. Through her kindness, sense of humor, and dedicated work ethic, I see him in action. My heart goes out to you all at this time of loss. I hold you all in my prayers and thoughts.

    Warmest regards,


  4. Condolences to all of the Lampkin family. I can truly say no one had a father in law like mine. He never failed to make you laugh in some kind of way. For thirty years he called me “Cherry”. I’m glad I had the honor of being his daughter in law. He meant the world to me. He treated me as his own. He will always be loved, missed never forgotten. He filled a space that no one will ever replaced. Until we meet again.
