You still are missed.
Posted by Beth Veenendaal on July 8, 2015
yet another year has come and gone and I think of you each day. I miss you and all the love and laughter you brought to this otherwise way too serious girl. You were with me for such a short time. I long just to talk with you and look into those blue eyes one more time. I ask for your help almost everyday. There will always be an empty place in my heart . I can't wait until I see you again. Until then, help me stay strong big buy. I love you.

warren, not a day has gone by when you haven't been the first thought of the day and the last one before sleep at night. I carry you in my heart and try to remember the good times. I was blessed to have met you. I will never forget you and your love, generousity,
and kindness.

A heaven bound Happy Father's Day!! You were a true example of a great Dad for Jared and I'm sure he will follow suit with your grandchild that's on the way. Yep, that's right, I know he will make both of us proud! He already does...thank you!

Never met you so I can't really miss you but I heard many good things about you. You were extremely special to my sister Beth and she will never forget you in spite of the brief time she knew you.

Dear Warren

Shared by Vanessa Hooker on July 9, 2010

Warren - - I forgive you. And i hope you forgive me as well.

 

Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's rush,

I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds of circling flight.

I am the soft star that shines at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry.

I am not there.

I did not die.

 

~ Mary Elizabeth Frye

 

Thank you for Beth's sign. Ment the world to her!!

Slipped Away

Shared by Donna Gravelle on July 8, 2010

Na na, na na na, na na
I miss you, miss you so bad
I don't forget you, oh it's so sad
I hope you can hear me
I remember it clearly

The day you slipped away
Was the day I found it won't be the same
Ooooh

Na na na na na na na

I didn't get around to kiss you
Goodbye on the hand
I wish that I could see you again
I know that I can't

Oooooh
I hope you can hear me cause I remember it clearly

The day you slipped away
Was the day I found it won't be the same
Ooooh

I had my wake up
Won't you wake up
I keep asking why
And I can't take it
It wasn't fake
It happened, you passed by

Now you are gone, now you are gone
There you go, there you go
Somewhere I can't bring you back
Now you are gone, now you are gone
There you go, there you go,
Somewhere your not coming back

The day you slipped away
Was the day i found it won't be the same noo..
The day you slipped away
Was the day that i found it won't be the same oooh...

Na na, na na na, na na
I miss you

My Version of Santa Claus

Shared by Shannon Halsrud on July 7, 2010

As the years have passed we have gotten older and further away from each other but one thing has never changed...that special place in my heart for you. From the beginning when I was a little girl I thought," he has to be Santa Claus!" So loving, compassionate and giving, not to mention those rosy red cheeks. Of course I eventually figured out Warren wasn't Santa Claus, he was just a wonderful man married to my wonderful aunt. They both took me under their wings like they did so many others and gave me something to hold on to.

Watching Melissa one summer was the best experience I can recall. I was pampered, encouraged and even paid. Warren treated me to the 1st butter burger in town(Culver's), Brewer games, the zoo and Friday/Saturday movie night. Not just any movies either-Jean Claude Van Damme movies! We saw all of them that summer! Just some fun memories...I will always cherish. Warren you will be missed greatly- Love you!
