Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.
The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.
The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.
In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Warren G. Threats, Jr., affectionately known as “Little Brother” and "Grampa", was born in Elaine, Arkansas on September 26, 1941, to Sarah Ratliff and Warren G. Threats, Sr. He departed this life on Sunday, May 7, 2017, in Navarre, Florida, to go be with the Lord.
In 1946, when Warren was 5 years old, the family moved to Kansas City. Warren attended Kansas City Public schools from 1947 to 1959. However, during the summer months Warren spent the summers in Lambert, Arkansas, with his grandma and grandpa, along with some of his cousins - Girtha Mitchell, Viola Crayton, and some others. Warren was an adventurous child, "full of trickery" as described by one of his favorite cousins, Girtha Mitchell.
As a high school freshman (1955), he met and became best friends with Wilbur Neal and Henry Freeman Williams. While his best friends went into auto mechanics, Warren studied tailoring at the Manual Vocational Technical School, working throughout his high school years at several different local dry cleaners, honing his sharp dressing skills. In that same year, his mother Sarah married Elijah Knight, Sr.
After high school Warren worked local jobs in the Kansas City area and trained to be an over the road truck driver. In 1964 he moved to Chicago and took a truck-driving job with Metropolitan Wholesale where he worked for the next 10 years.
In 1975, he moved back to Kansas City and started working for Owens Corning Fiberglass as a Fork Lift operator. During this time, he linked back up with Wilbur and Freeman and joined the Zodiac Motor Cycle Club. With the Zodiacs he traveled the country attending the National Bikers Roundup (NBR) each year.
In 1986, he moved to California and held various jobs. Warren relocated to Las Vegas in 1996 where he met Marcia Peterson (Montrealle). They knew immediately that she would become Mrs. Threats, only taking 14 years to manifest.
In 1999, Warren welcomed his granddaughter Kianna (Montrealle). He subsequently relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2002 to be closer to her. In 2006, Warren welcomed his grandson, Julius.
For several years he traveled between Georgia, Missouri and Florida; finally calling Navarre, Florida, his permanent residence. In 2008, he joined New Life Deliverance Temple Church, under the leadership of Bishop Mark and Apostle Brenda Williams, whereas Warren & Marcia sealed their love for God and each other by wedding in May 2011.
Warren was preceded in death by his loving mother and stepfather, Sarah and Elijah Knight, Sr.
