  1. The Florida branch of the family sends sincere condolences.
    We have enjoyed so many wonderful
    times together with Uncle Warren and Aunt Mary over the years down at the lake in Hernando and here in Jacksonville and especially in the mountains of Virginia. How blessed we were to enjoy each other’s company and learn family history. They were always up for an adventure or a picnic!
    How many miles on the road enjoying Gods natural creations and beauty.
    They will always live in our hearts.
    Linda and Bill Dale
    Mabel Wilson
    And all the extended family

  2. Sorry for your loss! Your Dad and Mom were neighbors of ours for many years on South Emmett Street! Lots of good memories! They came to a Lair reunion at Sanchris Lake a few years ago…probably the last time I saw them! Thoughts and prayers!

  3. Our prayers for all the family and friends. Warren is rejoicing in heaven with his beloved Mary and so many other loved ones. A life well lived.
