To the Charles family,  May your loving memories of Warren fill your hearts with peace and comfort. And although there are no words that can take away your pain, please remember that you are not alone. Psalm 46:1 says, “God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress.” Pray to Him for strength. He will really help you (Isaiah 41:10) because He cares for you (1Peter 5:7). John 11:11, 21-26; Revelation 21:3,4. My heartfelt condolences.

To my old pal Walla Challa…it is with deep regret that I read of your passing. I am confident you are at rest and in peace. I will never forget our trips to Buck Run and the Penn State games and the snowmobiling. Even though those days took place in the late ’70’s and early ’80’s and then we drifted apart due to lifes circumstances, you were a joy to spend those weekends with and it was my good fortune to know you and call you my friend. For now I bid you fare thee well and I’ll see you again on the other side.
