Warren was the son of my grandmother Clara's younger sister Winnie. I remember his mischevious smile and his jokester reputation. I can see his 6'4 or 5" frame standing in the doorway at Clara's house with a twinkle in his eye and a smile that said "Don't you wish you knew what I am smiling about". Warren was credited with tricking my grand mother Clara once when the families were overnighting in a hotel on their way to a Florida vacation. According to the legend my grand mother saw Warren in the hall and asked if he could direct her to her room as she was confused about which room number she and my grand father were occupying. Seriously Warren directed her to a room which much to my grand mother's shock and surprize turned out to be a room occupied by strange man reading the newspaper in bed! I suppose he was as startled as my grand mother. Nobody knows if Warren knew his room directions were wrong and certainly he could not know the outcome anyway....or could he?

Mr. Allen took our wedding pictures on 10/26/1962. The pictures were in black/white then, but they are still like brand new. He was a great photographer. We are so sorry about his death, but we are so glad we got to meet him. Adrian/Linda Meadows
