Dear Warner and Carolyn: Don and I have recently spent a month in Sarasota Memorial Hospital and sincerely hope you are receiving the same excellent medical care. I recall fondly our first meeting in Aspen when I heard your presentation on The Automated Patient History. Your warmth and kindness dealing with patients has flavored our friendship over the years. I was ready to apply for a volunteer job to help with your innovative projects and treasure our recent visit in Boston. Loving prayers are with you and Carolyn. Mary

Warner, All my best wishes for a speedy recovery. You are a true pioneer in our field. Ed

Warner, When AHRQ called many experts in informatics together to discuss standards, 1998 I believe, your name was one of the first that we HAD to invite. It was my pleasure to meet you and hear your advice. You and your work continue to be held in the highest esteem. Wishing you the best of health outcomes. Mike

Warner—very sorry to hear you are ill! You are one of my heroes, especially around your work re getting patients more engaged. Hoping you are better soon—David Bated
