ellen we are so sorry about Hosea. I just loved him. I didnt know at the time because I would have come to the service. My dad is 94 and also served in Alaska during world war 2. I can't believe we never knew that. Gail and Lowell
Dear Suzanne and Ellen and Family: I was privileged to meet your Dad in the 70's when we both worked for Prudential. Through the years I got to know him better when I leased office space for his agencies and when he worked in the Home Office. We maintained contact though the Pru retiree club and I contacted him on several occasions to ascertain his health. You should be so proud of what a wonderful man he was. Honest, God fearing, wonderful temperament and outstanding insurance man. He was the epitome of the gentlemen I have known through the years. A few years ago when he was contemplating a move to the retirement community, he contacted me about selling some of his Pru stock and I told him that my commission was 10%!! We both laughed and I gave him the info he needed. I last saw him a few months ago at Alec Hochman's funeral. It was great to shake his hand again. We will miss him terribly and we will keep you in our prayers. I wanted to attend the services today but my wife is a paraplegic and our caregivers do not come today. Rest assured he and you will be in our thoughts today. Again, Hosea was the finest man I have ever known, bar none.

My condolences to the bereaved family of Mr. Warren. May you be comforted by reflecting back on the many good times you enjoyed together. Also you can look forward to the end to all causes of death and the heartaches it brings.
My husband and I first met Hosea in the early 1980's when he came out to our house to sell us life insurance. My husband maintained close contact with him for many years and thought so very highly of him. He was the nicest man - so easy to talk to and always with a sense of humor. Last time I spoke with Hosea was when he called to offer condolences after my Ken passed away. A great loss for us but what a great reward for Hosea and all those waiting for him in heaven.
I first met Hosea in the late 1970's when I was assigned to the ushering team he captained at Holy Spirit Episcopal. I immediately recognized he was a good man and possessed many qualities I admired.
At a Holy Spirit silent auction in the early 1990's, we bid on and won a week's use of a house in Cloudcroft, NM. I was pleased to learn that the "cabin" had been donated by Hosea's family. Our road trip and the time at the Warren's mountain home gave us respite from Houston that summer and continues, over 20 years later, to provide great memories.
In recent years, visiting with Hosea at church services and events always made me glad I had attended that day.
Hosea was a man with much to give and he gave generously.
May you rest well, my friend.
