Bim had the biggest smile, but what was cool was he wanted to put that same smile on everyone elses face. He just loved to have a good time! As a kid I also had the pleasure to see him play softball for Dekalb Hotel. I will never forget how hard he could hit the ball and how hard he fought to win games.

  20. Very sorry to read of the passing of your dear loved one Warren. Life is such a precious gift and yet so short-lived for the time we exist.
    We are comforted by the hope of the resurrection.
    God holds out this wonderful hope for all those in the grave. At John 11:25 Jesus said “I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE. HE THAT EXERCISES FAITH IN ME, EVEN THOUGH HE DIES, WILL COME TO LIFE.”

    Mark 5-38-43 is one of the nine accounts of ones who were resurrected. How comforting to know these things from the Holy Scriptures. What a blessed reason to hope in God! (John 5-28,29)

    The gift of memories of Warren will bring you great joy and turn into a treasure.

    You and yours will receive strength though prayer to God, you will feel comfort by the loving concern of your God-fearing friends, and you will be uplifted by studying God’s Word.

    Trust in ” the God of All Comfort ” (PSALMS 83-18)
