Warner: If I were back at my old haunts in schools of management, teaching 'newbies,' writing text about the art, and cajoling faculty to do a better job, all the raw material I need could come from examples and tributes in this blog -- boldness about needs and possibilities for change, creativity and energy to move things along, but always tempered as you led by how you have shared involvement and credit in the work and how you keep everyone focused on the 'others' -- patients, co-workers, customers to whom benefits should be aimed. … Ceci keeps looking in the hallways for your return.

Hey Warner! I know a few hundred people who would like to celebrate your birthday with you and Carolyn! I am surely one of that pack. Thinking of you and missing the pleasure of your and Carolyn's incomparable company. Off to Knit Wits! Fondly,

Hi Warner, It is such a pleasure to know you. You are a good role model for showing respect to all the residents of Lasell Village. Love Jean and Peter

Sorry I missed sending greetings on your birthday yesterday - but I think of you every day and say a prayer that you (and Carolyn) will know that you are never alone. With gratitude and thanks for all you have done to help me (and probably every one else at Lasell Village)! You are the best! LIs

Thinking of you and Carolyn with love and good wishes. Hope you had a lov-er-ly birthday. ........Naomi

Hello Warner - just a brief note to send you a cheerful hello on the occasion of your birthday.

Cher Warner, you and Caroline are the first Villagers we met when we were visiting Lasell two are one of the reasons we came. You have welcomed not only us, but our family, going to Danielle’s concerts among other things. Through your genuine warmth and caring, you have been our model for how to live in a community, a transformative experience. We want to tell you, on your birthday, that we love you. Bernard and Nelly

You are in my thoughts and prayers. I miss seeing you together in the hallways.. You brought strength and comfort to our community.

You have directly impacted the lives of many hundreds,or is it thousands, and indirectly improved the health care of millions of patients around the world. Having had an all too short time with you andCarolyn at Lasell Village, we wish we had convinced you to come to U F’s medical school in the 60’s. We would have had great fun together.

Warner, we are all thinking about you and wishing you WEll. Please do come back to us sooñ, And HAPPY BIRTHDAY these are a few villagers singing Jane Hyman
