Dear Marilyn and family,
I have so many wonderful memories of Mr. Cosgrove during my years at Sacred Heart Parish. He was a prince of a man, goodness personified.
We had a bit of an Irish connection. He often referred to me as Sister Irish. I enjoyed viewing the photo gallery. Warren did like flashy suspenders I see!
May all your many good family memories and stories bring you peace and may Warren rest in peace in the arms of our God, his journey on this Earth completed..
Sister Sharon Simon (aka Sister Irish)

Warren was a WONDERFUL Vincentian, so full of love, compassion, and humor. I had the joy of meeting him when I first stated working for SVdP, and he will always have a special place in my heart. He cared so much for every person he interacted with, and would treat you like family. All who knew him have been bless, and will continue to be blessed as he continues to love us with our heavenly father.

God bless the family of Warren Cosgrove. I knew Warren from our days at GNC Truck and always found him to be fair, honest and hard-working. He was a great Hearts player, also!
