I can only add to the many glowing tributes to Warner both as an Informatician, a colleague, and a friend. His warm hearted spirit and wisdom have been a joy to us all. I have known Warner since the mid-1960s, when Jerry Grossman and I visited him at the U of Wisconsin, where he proudly showed us his Linc computer patient history program. I have followed all his pioneering achievements in engaging patients in their care since then. He will clearly be missed, but it must have been gratifying to him to see the surge in patient-centered and behaviorally focused activities in our community that he foresaw the need for in the earliest days.
