Not sure what to say?

I worked with Warner when he was the radio announcer for the Virginia Squires of the old ABA during its final years of existence. We roomed together in 1974 for a year and I truly got to see up close how dedicated and professional he was and how he took his job very seriously. He loved being a broadcaster and was very good at it. I would run into him once in a while in New York years later and he was just the same Warner, at the time doing This Week in Baseball. It has been several years...

Prayer is one of the things that help us through such difficult times. My prayers and thoughts have been for Warner's family and friends. Was looking forward to seeing him at our class reunion. He was always there for us.

May God's grace and peace be with Warner's family during this difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Warner's loved ones. I, like others, was looking forward to seeing him at our GHS class reunion.

Alicia, bubba was out of town and emailed this to me but I am just now looking at my email. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. We had no idea that you had such a famous brother. He sounds like a delightful person and i know he will be greatly missed! God's peace dear friend.....

Wth love,

You were a true friend to me during our days at GHS and during my problems later in life. As an old Yankee fan I will always cherish the friendship of the Cardinals' greatest fan. Rest in peace. James Dorsey ("Chubby")

I pray for God's grace and comfort for Warner's family members during these difficult days and months to come.

It was such a shock to hear of Warner's passing. Everyone on the Reunion Committee was so looking forward to seeing him again after almost 50 years. He will be missed by us all.

I am so sorry for the loss of my old friend Warner. It seems he had a good life, but, of course, I wish it could have been longer. I was looking forward to seeing him at the 50th GHS Reunion. My sympathy goes to the family.
