So sorry to hear about Warren’s passing. I knew him my whole life as we both went to Church of Christ, later called Abbeyville Rd Christian Church. Although he has not been a part of my life for a few years now, I will always remember him and his warm greeting every Sunday morning.
I was so saddened to see Warren has passed. I’ve enjoyed making his candy boxes at Evans Candy for years. He was my all time favorite customer and it was an honor to know him.
So sad to hear about Warren’s passing. He was such a kind, loving, wonderful man and he will be greatly missed. My condolences to all the family.
