    Irene and family, Mr. Warren will truly be missed by many. He was such a kind man and loved him dearly. He was one of my dad’s best friends. Someone commented that Paradise Lane has been started in heaven. Prayers for the family during this time of loss.

    Mrs Irene and family,
    I’m so sorry for your loss of Mr Langham. He was such a nice and caring man. I Remember many years at Wiggins Methodist with him. He had a servants heart and you could see that in many areas of the church that he had a hand in. He was a jokester and if I felt a pinch on my shoulder, I knew it was Mr. Warren. When I heard he had passed away, I remembered that and it made me smile. Heaven has a new angel. Miss Irene, you are in my prayers for strength and comfort. Love, Carol Fincher
