Warner, I’ll never forget the time Joan Ash and I had the opportunity to interview you and Howard. It was so great to hear all the old stories and get to know you both in some small way. It always makes my day to run into you at AMIA or the ACMI dinner. Best wishes to you, Dean

Warner, Hi. I've always appreciated the genuine interest and warmth you have shown towards me whenever we have bumped into each other at AMIA, in Boston or wherever. I hope some of that good feeling you have given me comes back to you at this tough time. And thanks too for all the inspiration you have given to me and many, many others as we have looked around at this great field of medical informatics and wondered what's the best way to spend our time? Your leadership by example always has been terrific and so much appreciated. Wishing you all the best, Gil.

Sending positive thoughts and prayers to you and your family as you cope with your illness. Sue

Warner, When did we become patients? As Don said: Light up the day! Mark

Dear Warner, Wish you the best for a quick recovery. Aziz

Dear Warner, I can only add to the many glowing tributes to you both as an Informatician,, a colleague, and a friend. Your warm hearted spirit and wisdom are a joy to us all. I have known you since the mid-1960s, when I visited you in Wisconsin, and have followed all your pioneering achievement since then. I wish you all the best during your hospitalization and hope for a speedy recovery. Warmest regards,

Warner, Vimla and I are distressed to hear that you are ill and in the hospital. I have many fond memories of our interactions, professional and personal, over the years, and often reminisce about the 'good old days' in Boston and at informatics events. We will be thinking of you and hoping that you feel better soon. With great respect, Ted Shortliffe and Vimla Patel

Dear Warner and Carol, I am sorry to hear that you are having this trouble. Please accept my most sincere wishes for a speedy recovery of both body and spirit.

Dear Warner - Godspeed and I hope this little bump is nothing more than a hiccup along your path. Thank you for your forever friendship and collegiality as another Montclair boy in the field. You have inspired me and many others along the way. Looking forward to the next rendezvous. Best, B

Dear Warner and Carolyn: I'm very sorry to hear you are hospitalized. Your presence will light up the day for all those around you. I hope the mecicals will help you in whichever ways are feasible. Mary and I are somewhat stuck in a similar situation. I'm awaiting a 'next' small surgery, but plan to return to Washington in June if all goes well. Warner, you are a swell person. I've admired you since medical school. Your fame grows, but it's hard to beat just being a medical student! Best wishes ....Don
