Remarks and loving comments . . . Saturday mornings, through the years, at the Warden home you could find Papaw Milton up making delicious pancakes and coffee milk for the grandchildren. This is just a tidbit from the treasure chest of all the special moments we will keep in our hearts always. A quiet, meek, unsung hero . . . we are singing his song and tribute to the most loving, caring, gentle, Godly man. Through the years, he would read his Bible; he loved and promoted our pastor and the Rosepine UPC. He loved the works of God and the ministering of the Word of God. He had a great love and respect of people and especially children and babies. Always ready and willing to help with any project, he was a very hard worker himself, he helped in the nursing home ministry at the Rosepine Nursing Home for many years and was on the board at Newlin Cemetery. He was an unsung hero and today we try to sing his song. The loving family of Winfred Milton Warden
