Dear Warner, I am so sorry to hear that you are ill and in the hospital. I have so many memories of "growing up" during our CCC days. My first time meeting you, of course, was the day you came and lectured to my Computer Science class at Brandeis in 1976, telling us all about Converse and demonstrating the UTI interview. Little did I know then that a couple of years later Harris Yett would put me in touch with Howard, and despite the fact that I failed the MIIS test you guys would hire me anyway! You taught me so much about how to work with clinicians and administrators, all of which served me well during my 35 years at BIDMC. You are one of the kindest men I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Though we didn't always see eye to eye, we were able to agree to disagree with mutual respect, which meant a lot to me. I am sending healing thoughts and big virtual hugs your way (not as big as the wonderful bear hugs you always give, of course, my arms just aren't big enough!). Love, Caryn
