Malachi Judah Airmiess Garner, born August 17, 2022, went home to Jesus on November 3, 2022.
While he was in the womb, he was loved and cherished by his mother and family. Once born, he was loved and cherished for the gift that he is, so precious and adored. We are devastated but realize that he is more alive than we are as he now lives with God in heaven.
Malachi smiled at his mother and tried to talk to her the early morning hours of the day he went home. He gave his mother a gift that morning that she will cherish all her life.
Malachi means "messenger of God" and we are experiencing the message of God as we mourn his leaving us. That message is love, the love of God.
Judah means praise God. We are praising God for Malachi's short lived life. Though he is gone and this brings agony to his mother's heart and grief to us all, we can praise God for the gift of knowing him and the light of God's love he brought us.
He will be greatly missed by his mother, Brittany Nicole Garner; father, Kirkwood Jerome Artrell; sisters, Mia Green and Meaira Garner; brother, KJ Walter; grandmother, Bonnie Garner; aunt, Ashley Garner; uncles, Matthew Benson and Devin Garner; Nana, Sarah Winandy; grandpa, Mick Winandy; great-aunts and uncles, Leah and Patrick Weimer, Daniel and Bashia Garner, Christina and Scott Pickle and Michael Winandy; and many cousins and 2nd cousins.
Visitation to be held at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, November 15th at Sunrise Funeral Home, 4798 Miller Trunk Hwy, with Memorial Service to follow at Noon.
