    Warren was a husband, father, brother, uncle, mentor, friend and just an overall good person. He was loved and admired more than he knew. Warren was smart, insightful, funny, intelligent, always looking for a new friend, and yes he was tall. Despite Warren’s height, I never felt he was talking down to me, or anyone else. He would always inquire about my kids and grandkids. I will miss that. Diane and I will miss the times we spent together as couples. I will miss our lunches & happy hours with other friends like Lee and Stubby. I will miss his bad jokes and all the laughter… but most of all I will miss my friend, Warren (aka… Tree).

    Your friend,
    David Westbrooks & Family

    I knew his from when we met in 7th grade. We walked many paths together and as life would have it, found we had to divert our journey as time marched on. I know his heart was to serve and for this I will remain grateful to say I got a portion of his kindness along the way.

    He is now walking his journey with God, face to face.

    My brother, Warren, will be dearly missed by my siblings and me. We cherished recent time spent with him and sharing many memories and laughs. Warren fought hard to the very end and we’re glad he’s now at peace with our Lord. His suffering has ended. His eternal joy had begun. Thanks be to God for His faithfulness and mercy.

    Our thanks goes out to everyone who stood with us in prayer, reached out in love and friendship, and shared our pain. We are grateful for the role you played in Warren’s life. Warren enjoyed life and valued his family and friends. Thank you, also, to everyone who joined the funeral home’s zoom call despite the technical difficulties experienced. We hope to have a recorded version of link the service that can be shared.

    My condolences to the family. I met Warren at work many moons ago. You couldn’t help but notice him he was quite a presence. When I was actively dating trying to find “the one” he was the greatest big ‘brother’ giving me his opinion and advice on who to kick to the curb lol. I will never forget a double date with Warren and his wife and he told me promptly after that the guy was not a keeper and he was so right. The next guy I dated became my husband and Warren was so excited for me and even more excited as we had children. He was always checking in and seeing how my family was doing. Warren was alway so positive, funny and supportive and a good friend. He will be missed.

    He called me before New Years to tell me about his condition. He said don’t cry for me, because we will see each other again, in glory. I never knew it would be so soon. t was mot brother in Christ and blessed friend from college and my sisters and family loved him as uncle Tree. Rest in Heaven my brother. When you see my Dad let him know that we weep because we miss you and are overjoyed that you are in the presence of God.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
