Alexander Warren was my grandfather. I never knew him, as his murder happened many years before I was born. Much more tragic is that my mother, his daughter Sanna, now deceased as well, never knew her father. My grandmother, Alma was carrying her at the time of his death. I am proud of my grandfather and appreciative that he is remembered and honored here.
