    We fell in love with Ms Betty & Mr. Warren many years ago. It was when Ernie was running Pamlico Marine for Wilton Smith. We saw many small lives cared for and loved during that time by this very special couple. Very few couples today have the hearts & souls they had. I believe God a very special houseguest.
