Brother-Sister, life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forgive the ones who don't, just because you can. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands know this. If it changes your life, let it. Take a few minutes to think before you act when you're mad. Forgive quickly.

Aunt Lillian, I'm so sorry to hear about Uncle Warren. It was a shock to me. I wish I could be there to offer my condolences. Uncle Warren was such a sweet person. Julie, Donna, and Josh, I know you will miss your dad terribly. Please accept my sympathy for your loss. I hope to be able to see you soon.Celeste, Rhett, Cameron and Mallory Stout

Lillian, Jan and I are so sorry for your loss. Warren was a brother to me and a brother is a God send and someone who has shared in many of the shame experiences from the same point of view. Warren was not only a brother, but also a good friend. We were very different yet we are very much the same when it come to what matters in life. Our ideals may differ yet we both saw things in the same light. God bless you, your family and your memories of your husband, Warren.
