To Warren's family: You don't know who I am but when Warren was a student at Swanton High School my husband Ted (deceased Sept., 2015) and I were teachers there. My remembrance of Warren is nothing but good. He was a kind, gentle person. I was sorry to read that he had suffered physically for a long time. That is difficult. You certainly have my sincere sympathy and may our gracious Lord comfort, strengthen and grant you peace at this time of grief. Dora Titgemeyer
