To Mary Elizabeth and all Warren’s friends in Michigan,

The loss of my special cousin Warren weighs great on all of us. I will hold memories of great discussions over Pappa Joe’s Sausage Pizza and a cold beer. What I remember most is that the time was always punctuated by that sly and sweet smile of Warren’s.

And as we know, next to Mary Elizabtheh, writing and his friends, Warren’s love of olive oil kept him going strong through all 42 of his lives!

May you rest easily in God’s arms, dear cousin — My love, Phyllis

Mary Elizabeth,
My heart and thoughts are with you always as your journey continues.
I am not able to be with you at such a special moment for you and Warren.
Warren was such a stinker, loved by so many.

I am late in adding my wife Diane and my condolences to Mary Elizabeth and Skip’s friends on his passing. I had many opportunities to catch up on both Wampum and Skip’s experiences when visiting my Mom over the last several years. Skip always had a story to share and a laugh to add to our times together. Despite his travels I always thought his heart remained in Wampum and Beaver Falls and New Castle. Skip, you shall be missed and we know you have gone to a better place and shall rest in peace forever. Jim and Diane DeMark
