Message: Erwin Wardlaw was my friend from 1st grade to the time I left Warren at age 15. I helped him sell Radio Guides on Sat. mornings! We were reading the Sunday comics at my house when we heard of Pearl Harbor. I remember our friendship very pleasantly and hold you in my thoughts. Kathryn Hatley Young
