Sorry for your loss. May your wonderful memories of Warren's smile and great humor, and the support of family give strength in the days ahead. Thinking of all of you and wishing you peace and comfort as you remember your partner, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. Flights of angels sing him to his rest.
