I often heard my father, Dr. George Lipshy, talk fondly of Warren & Sylvia Wacher. My condolences to your family. May God grant you peace and may you be blessed with many happy memories of Warren.

With love from Amarillo!

I, Mark Kaplan, attended Gables High School and graduated there in 1965 with Warren Wacher. I have fond memories of times we were together. Gables High, the Cavaliers, was a great school to attend then. We had a great education and so many activities we attended and enjoyed.
