    Pam, Brian, Stephen-My condolences on the loss of your father. I have had great respect for him ever since I was fourteen years old and Warren was one of the big kids in the neighborhood. Our acquaintance was interrupted by his early army service and my later enlistment; but, was rejoined by the happy event of his marriage to your mother. A visit with your dad has always been one of the high points of my visits to the cape. I will miss that. May he rest peacefully with the Lord. Love, Uncle Len
