Lucas Nathaniel Warren

May 22, 2019 — May 5, 2024

Lucas Nathaniel Warren was born May 22, 2019, a miracle baby to Chelsey and Aaron Warren and to a family that couldn't have been more ready to love him with every fiber of our being. From the moment we met him, our Scrummy (his unusual but somehow extremely fitting nickname) became the absolute center of his family. Despite an immediate stint in the NICU for some slowly developing lung capacity, Lucas' personality came out fully formed, sweet and funny from the start, and the delighted shrieks he made when he got a little bigger made it clear his lung capacity was not only fine, but actually impressive. He had the most beautiful big round eyes from his mom, and the rest of him was distinctly Warren (the short legs and big head in particular). No one knows where the naturally bleach blonde hair came from. What we do know is that he quickly inherited his mom's sweetness, his dad's sensitivity, and an unmatched sense of humor from them both. He was completely fearless and was constantly developing his big, beautiful personality. He was the kind of four year old who would sing karaoke at the top of his lungs in front of a massive group of adult strangers and who took over the dance floor at his auntie's wedding with break dancing skills he seemingly developed out of nowhere. He had a spirit filled with joy, mischief, and pure love that was truly limitless. He was so rowdy that he had already knocked out three of his front teeth, just like his dad did at his age. He loved his mom and dad more than anything in this world, with Spiderman and Paw Patrol as close seconds.

He was very excited to start kindergarten in the fall, but he could already read and write, including inscribing "MOM" in permanent marker on the leg of his Mimi's dining table. His emotional intelligence was the thing about him that was the most stunningly ahead of his time. He would often surprise his family members with an "I love you" or "you're my favorite" out of the blue, and you were always the luckiest one in the room when he chose you that day. He loved to pretend to cook like his dad, catch Pokemon on his mom's phone, play with his doggies, and spend endless time with his favorite people, in person or on the phone. You always knew if you got a FaceTime from Mimi's phone, it was Lucas calling to talk to you. When he had access to his parents' phones, he would use the opportunity to text surprisingly legible messages of love to his people and, sometimes, to put complete strangers into group chats just to say hello. He was endlessly sweet, uproariously funny, and the most precious child that ever lived.

Lucas was weeks away from his 5th birthday when he was tragically taken from us in a horrific flash flood accident on May 5, 2024. It is our small comfort that he was with his precious mom as long as he could be, and that our beloved Aaron and Chelsey are blessedly still with us. It is devastating to remember Lukey as anything other than safe and sound with his family, who each loved him more than ourselves, who would all trade places with him in an instant if we could. It is a cruel reality that we won't get to watch him become the increasingly spectacular person he was so clearly becoming, but we are all immeasurably, indescribably blessed and changed by the too short time he was ours, and we wouldn't trade it for anything, even knowing the outcome. We will forever remember him as the beautiful boy who changed our family for good, who became our nucleus the moment he arrived, and we will forever brace ourselves against the hole in our hearts and our family without him. We pray and know that he's now safe and sound snuggled up on his Mamaw's lap, surrounded by Grandma Jane, Mawmaw Joyce, Grandma Frances, and countless other loved ones, waiting impatiently for us all to come play with him. Our sweet baby Scrummy, we will love you with our whole hearts, forever. We will spend our whole lives longingly waiting to see you again.
