Patti, We are so sorry to hear about Warner's passing. We have many, many good and funny memories. Like playing cards (even with Pepsi that flew across the room), playing games with words like AEROSOL and TOBACCO, and Ohio State football (Go Bucks!) Our condolences to you, Stacy, and Scott.

Patti, I am so sorry for your loss. We look back on our time as your neighbor with very fond memories. Warner (and you) welcomes us into your lives when we had no other family around as a newly married couple. We appreciate you both. All of our love.

Patty, I’m so sorry to hear this...as a neighbor for 10 years, I was blessed to know you both, as was our family. I could always count on Warner to help at the drop of a hat...whether it be a snake emergency (lol), a gardening question, chit chat about trains, life, neighborhood watch, or the pool.... :) I always found it funny that we were both Ohio-born and still when I smell a charcoal grill, I think of Warner. :) I am praying for you and your family during this time & pray you are comforted by many fond memories, and a life fully lived. Blessings & My Condolences, Deanna
