I'm very sorry to hear of Warren's passing. We lost touch the last few years, but nothing can take away the memories of him as a neighbor,friend, and employer. As one of their first employees, I remember taking breaks in the old house on top of Rice hill. Hazel woul make blueberry muffins and rootbeer floats. The cold winter nights in the yellow house across the street where Warren and Don were building a cabin cruiser and telling stories and jokes. I think it was the best job I ever had, at least the most fun. To the Gove Family you lost a great guy, I will NEVER forget You! Rest in Peace. Ron Baril
