Sheryl, Julie and Families,
Jeanne and I send our condolences to Warren's family and friends. We're sure he will be missed by many. I regret that we did not have lunch, as usual, when we were back in Omaha last spring.
Even though we were cousins, we did not spend a lot of time together (that's the Wilkie way). But, Warren was truly one of the nicest guys I've ever known and I thoroughly enjoyed my times with him.
Sincerely,
Dave & Jeanne Wilkie

I can just picture my father-in-law Fred Pistone and Warren getting together for spaghetti dinner this Thursday at the “Sons of Italy in the sky”. Enjoyed all the times I got to spend with Warren. Save me a seat at the table fellas and I’ll see you when I get there!

I will greatly miss Warren. We shared so many great times together. Many hunting experiences, often with my dad and brothers. Everyone wanted to be around Warren because he made you feel good. He and dad were much alike in that they shared so many qualities that I admire: wisdom, courage, strong work ethic, humor, always willing to help someone in need, and most importantly a strong believe in God.
During the last several years we called each other about every two weeks. This last year was a rough time for Warren but he always turned the conversation around to how I and my family were doing, rather than dwell on his own serious health concerns.
I can't imagine the joy that Warren is experiencing now in Heaven.

Warren was like an uncle to me and my brothers. I think though he was our mother's first cousin, he was the brother our father never had. I never have known someone who enjoyed the outdoors more. He lived a full life. We will miss him
