Couple honored with parties celebrating future nuptials
Katy and Chris Barbour of Nashville, Tenn., were the weekend guests of Margaret Ann and Norbert Barruel.
Vicki Webb returned Sunday from a visit in Steamboat Springs, Co., where she was visiting with Will and Kate Carlton and her grandson, Bridger.
Ben Seale Jr., and fiancee’, Ann Ostenson, both of Jackson, had a weekend jam-packed with parties celebrating their future nuptials. Ann’s parents, Ginger and Tom Ostenson, of Alpharetta, Ga., were here, as well, to join in the festivities. Ben’s siblings, Andy Seale of Nashville, Tenn., and Hamilton Seale of Pensacola, Fla., also came home to participate. Everyone had a wonderful time participating in the events and thoroughly enjoyed meeting Ann’s parents. They were both a true treat and a sweet couple. Ben could not have picked a cuter girl with such a wonderful family. Many congratulations to the happy couple and their families!
How does one even begin to describe the life of one of the most wonderful young men on this earth whose life was cut short? My earliest memory of Rob Warren was when he was a mere toddler running around the grounds of Christ Episcopal, basket in hand gathering eggs on Easter. Pure joy filled his face, as well as the hearts of onlookers, with each egg he found. It was a beautiful sight and a treasured memory.
Rob was a go-getter and the hardest working man I have ever known. The perfect role model for children and adults alike. Even after he was diagnosed with cancer, he still wore a smile bigger than life. He kept up with his lawn care business, riding on the mower, ear phones on, wearing his “Top Gun” sunglasses. If Grady and Caitlyn heard him next door, they would run out to speak to “Mr. Rob.” Never was there a time he would not stop mowing to speak.
Kind and compassionate do not even come close to decribing Rob. He touched the hearts and souls of everyone he knew. That was more than evident Monday at his burial. Sheriff’s helicopters swept over Holly Springs in honor of their fallen brother. The procession was like nothing I have ever seen and will more than likely never see again - sheriff, police and fire departments from not just Marshall County were all in attendance. I watched in awe -- what a tribute to the kind of person Rob Warren was and to the fantastic family who raised him. He will be remembered forever as a man who moved us all. My deepest sympathy to his family and close friends.
