First, and most important, I pray Warren does get better. Met him in 2010 at the MABK in Gray, TN. Wonderful man. Second, wish I could be there. Not travelling through, or near, there until next Monday or Tuesday on my way to SC. I do have 2 viewing stones from Warren's collection he donated to the auction at the MABK show. And me being a rock collector also, I am very proud to own them :)

I am sad to hear this. I remember Warren when he was at the National Arboretum. Great guy. Knowledgeable and funny.

When I attended the MABK a dinner was held the Friday evening before. I was representing a friend of mines business(don't want to plug) there. Anyway, while enjoying the fine food catered, sitting across from Warren at our table out of all subjects to talk about we talked about turtles. Loved it!
