Dear Anne and family,
I've been praying for you in these most difficult of days. Warren, to me, was my advisor, my mentor, and made my Thursdays off a special treat if I knew I was heading over to see "el doctor" as we called each other. I know he's watching over you and your family, I am so thankful to have been a small part of your husbands life. May God bless you.

PSALM 23

December 11, 2012

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwellin the house of the Lord Forever.

Dear Anne, my deepest sympathies of the passing of your husband, Warren. Tears were flowing when I found out. Even though I only met him once, I believe the time STA gathered at your home to plan our 30th Reunion, he was friendly and so perfect for you. I am glad I had that opportunity to meet your husband.
Anne, I know its really hard and you probably don't want to chat right now, but do so remember, I am here for you and your family. Anne, we live close to each other and if you ever want to text or maybe get out of the house, get your mind off of things, please don't ever hesitate to call me. 954 708 5097. Do note, that Warren would not want you to be sad and not be the same beautiful woman he fell in love with and married years ago. Memories will help you make it through the rough times and Warren is watching down upon you and family and wants to see that beautiful smile of yours he so adored.
Warren is in Heaven now and will be there always in spirit for you, guiding you and family, always.

God Bless you and your family, Anne

Love Nancy Harris,

Warren left an indelible impression upon me as a person and a professional. Warren's words and actions defined the meaning of, "Gentleman." Warren's kindness, grace and integrity will shine bright in the memory of all who were privileged to meet him. With Sympathy and Respect, David Hausdorff
