I have fond memories that my Mother Mildred and Father Red Brandt have shared of your father. The funniest being Warren having snakes in the top pocket of his bib overhauls! Also all the "cat" her would feed. They all had a white stripe down the back.

I wrote a message & thought I posted it but I must have pushed a wrong button—I don’t see it! Sooo here’s another! Sorry if there’s two!!!

Vera, Floyd, Josie, Jimmie , & Debbie,

You & your family have my sympathy! I loved Warren AND ALL HIS JOKES!! AND his Snakes!! OMG—hated them — and he knew it!!
Lots of good memories from down in that neighborhood!
We need to have a reunion/get-together for all to get re-acquainted!
Wish I could be there to give you each a hug in person but due to the winter weather here in NW Ia-I won’t be able to make it tomorrow! Milan was planning to come but he hurt his foot today so won’t be able to make it! Marilyn & Merle winter in AZ. Mona lives in AZ & Madelyn is in Florida for the winter!
The Proctor’s, Faber’s, Gillen’s, & Sinclair’s have many memories together growing up! Too many to list!!
It’s tough to lose our parents—they have been there all our lives!!! Life does go on! They may be gone but we still have the memories!! Forever! Lots of good ones!
Thanks for always bringing your Mom & Dad to Mom’s Birthday parties in ANKENY! It meant a lot to her as well as we Kids! Also for showing up at the cemetery for Mom & MARION!
I remember Warren sitting in Floyd’s pickup at MARION’s! He didn’t get out - but he was there—to see we kids!!!! We did appreciate it!
Each of you give your Mom a hug from me & know that I will be thinking about you all tomorrow at this difficult time!!!
Hugs & Prayers,
Martha (Sinclair) ILLG. One of “The 7 “M’s”
