I did not really know Warren, but I did know his sisters and his parents. My heart and prayers go out to his family at this sad time. I know that Sally Mae and Frank welcomed him into Heaven with open arms. Elsie Evans Houma, Louisiana

I remember going to CBM Camp with Warren. One morning we were going to the bible study camp site when a black snake went running across the path a bunch of us country kids ran after it and I want to think that Warren caught it and it bit him. The counselors had a fit but we all knew it was not poison. They took him to the doctor anyway. Am I correct in thinking it was Warren who caught it? Katie Chadwick
