Thinking of you all in this time of sorrow. In time may happy memories replace the sadness you feel today. We lived several houses down the street on Timber Hill Rd, in Buffalo Grove, IL. I remember Jackie’s smile and Warren’s easy going personality. Imagine that Howard & Jean Murgatroyd and Jackie & Warren are now sharing a toast to each other! Be well, and may God provide you all with peace during this difficult time.
One couldn't ask for a better neighbor! We talked some mornings, over coffee, about local and world news - neither of us solving anything. He enjoyed history and cinema stars. His favorite joke was "There's only two perfect people in this conversation, and I'm concerned about you!"We're missing you, old friend!!
Had the pleasure of working with Warren. He was always smiling no matter what was going on. Seen him not long ago and after a long time of not seeing me he still remembered me. He was a great man! Sorry for your loss.
Warren and Jackie were wonderful neighbors when we all lived on Rocky Ridge Road, Mountain Home, AR. We had many good times with them and missed them when they moved to MO. They were great friends.
I hope he and Jackle are together again and living blissfully. I wish his relatives all the best.
