    Warren was a great influence for me while I grew up with Dusty. He was a wonderful co-worker when I was starting my career, and an eventual friend. He always had a positive attitude and witty anecdote to share. I will miss catching him at a breakfast spot from time to time, or bumping into him at the grocery store; he always had a smile that was infectious. Rest in peace, Sir. I will plant an extra Iris or two this fall to honor your memory.
