Dear Mr.Warren and family, i am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear wife and mother. Mr. Warren i don't know if you remember me i graduated in 72 and was pretty high profile in school (kind of a trouble maker)with my partner in crime being Dale Brooks (possible reference person you also might remember). I don't know if you will get this sir, but i would like you to know, i have thought of you often over the years with the fondest of memories. I remember you being tough, but one of the fairest men I've ever known. I hope you are in good health and "God Bless You" Sincerely, Jim Savoie

Jim and Kris, your Wife/Mother will always be remembered by me as one of my favorite teachers. Seems like we had many heart to heart conversations after class while I was required to clean this or that. I know that she made me a better person. You are both in my prayers and thoughts. Tom Crosby

I just wanted you to know I am thinking of you, Jim. Such a caring couple. I feel lucky to have good people like both you and Ruth in my everyday rat race. I hope you still come to visit me. I wish I could take more time to talk to you. I'll come down to Faribault early if you have time for lunch sometime. Take care of yourself. You are in my prayers. Pauline Jacobs(PharmD)

Memories

I am so fortunate to have had Lorianne as a friend in the Order of Eastern Star. She was such a dear. She would be behind the scenes always...after our meetings if there would be dishes to do...she would be there. I knitted her the prayer shawl in February and March, thinking she was Electa in OES and she always looked nice in RED...Electa's color. She wrote such a nice Thank you saying that she felt she was beening hugged when she would put it on. I am so glad I got it finished in record time and that she got it to use and to be hugged by me! I will miss her dearly! With my sympathies, Love and God Bless,

No one could make pancakes like your Mom could, Kris. I am sure she would rather have slept those Saturday mornings when I was staying over. She got up and made them for us without ever seeming annoyed by it! We have recently enjoyed the great brownies, too! My sympathy to all of you, I know what a loss a wife and mother is.

To Mrs. Warrens' family, you have my deepest sympathy. Mrs. Warren impacted my life in Jr. high and I have always remembered her and appreciated her. Even seeing her as an adult- I always adddressed her as Mrs. Warren, because that is who she will always be to me. She was a wonderful person and I know I am the better person for knowing her. Paula
