Linnea and Dyon,
I was saddened when I learned, this morning, of Warren’s passing. It has been a pleasure to speak to both of you and help during these past several months. I know it has not been an easy time, but God has given you the strength to get through. I wish you comfort and peace in the days to come.

With deepest sympathy,
Marlie (medical secretary)

To the family of Warren,

I would like to express my condolences to you. I have worked with Warren over the years to help keep the Alden-Conger School a safe and healthful place to work and learn. Overt that time, Warren became a friend and he will be missed. He is very kind and found it easy to put smiles on the faces of others- I have often imagined him driving bus in a gorilla suit- he said he liked to dress up for Halloween...did he really do this?! Much love and peace to all whom share in his loss.

My sympathy to Warren's family. I had the privilege of working with Warren in my pig business for the last ten years. Every visit was a happy one, no worries about Warren's care. Since we were the same age we talked about many things other than pigs.
