    I would always get excited when I heard that Warren was coming for a visit to NC. I knew I would get to play in the dirt, the mud. I knew I would get to hear him laugh. I knew we would wade the branches, fish the creeks and share memories that would withstand time, memories that would take us back to the foundations of our youth. Those memories are important to me and they were important to Warren as well. I’m thankful for the times I got to share with him, for his heart, his laughter and his confidence that in our youth we could conquer anything before us. I will mourn the fact that our youth together has passed but I will smile and remember the grand adventures of our childhood. May God bring peace to his family and faith that he is on a new adventure.

You are all in my prayers. May you Rest In Peace my dear friend.
