  • Warren was a dear classmate of mine that I remember well. When my family moved to Mt. Vernon, I was in the 6th grade and knew not one soul. Warren befriended me and we became very good friends. I will always remember his kind, sweet heat. My heartfelt prayers go to all his family. I am sure he will be greatly missed.

  • Friend of my youth, you are dead; and life seems empty without you…. You my friend were explorer, humorous, sometimes reckless but always loyal and never less than special in all that you did.

    You were my friend when my life was bleak and you made everything so exciting, everything an adventure, new challenges to be faced and life so full it always overflowed the brim when you and I and our friends were together. You had a natural gift for friendship with a winning smile and a warm, engaging personality.

    Even though life became difficult for you, whenever I met you in the intervening years there was still some spark in memory of our youth and when you smiled and remembered, you lit up the whole room and time stood still if only for an instant and we were both young again and all the sadness of the intervening years vanished in an instant.

    I cannot believe that someone with as much life as you had is simply no where and in the words of Edna St Vincent Millay I quote the following passage:
    Sweetly through the sappy stalk
    Of the vigorous weed,
    Holding all it held before,
    Cherished by the faithfully sun,
    On and on eternally
    Shall your altered fluid run,
    Bud and bloom and go to seed:
    But your singing days are done;
    But the music of your talk
    Never shall the chemistry
    Of the secret earth restore.
    All your lovely words are spoken.
    Once the ivory box is broken,
    Beats the golden bird no more.

    Rest in peace my dear friend, you will forever live in my memory with love and gratitude for the person you were.

    Much love
