To Greg and Tom,
Warren was the first active duty Air Force person I made friends with when I was stationed at the Clinic at Vance AFB in Oklahoma a very long time ago. He worked in the Supply Dept. and I worked in Medical Records Dept. We used to have some great conversations back in his supply corner of the world. He was kind, funny and easy going. He arranged for my meeting Sonny those many years ago. So I guess he is the reason Justin is here today. Your father was a good man who will be missed by all. I am so sorry for your loss.
