Weems, I'm so sorry for your tragic loss, and so glad you're blessed with so many friends to help you through it. Little Tiger (disski) sends heartfelt hugs.

Dear Weems,

I am so sorry for your loss. No words can approximate the hurt you must feel right now. I was so saddened when I read about, I had to turn off the computer and go watch my two little ones sleep. It appears from your posts that you will approach this tragedy as, I think, you do most things in life; with grace, elegance and strength. As someone told me when my father passed last year, the pain will fade and the memories will bring only happiness. I hope that day comes soon for you and your family. Our thoughts and wishes are with you.

Weems, sorry for your loss.

Thanks everyone.

Yes, perservere is what we do. And we are surrounded by and being cleansed by wonderful family, community, and e community.

My gratitude to all of you is more than you can imagine.

We skied yesterday with his brothers and some of their friends--kind of an informal missing man formation--and it was very soothing and healing. There's lots of distance to travel on this road, but we're starting.

Thanks to you all.

I thought of you and Wallace as I gave my 15YO a slightly longer hug yesterday. I watched him soar through the air, egging his dad onto ever bigger hits ("stomp it dad"), and thought just how lucky we are who have that chance to share what we love.

May Wallace rest in peace and may the hole that he leaves in your life morph into something that is manageable.

You are in terrain that no one wants to traverse. May you and your family find safe passage on a track that is mellow and has the occasional great view.

with deepest condolences- michael

I will also say that there is much to learn here about accepting and being grateful for what one has, what one has had, and for the mysteries out there in the universe.

I will write more on this as the summer comes, and I get my mind around it.

So thanks for the healing thoughts. And I will reciprocate when I process some more of this.

Blessings to you all.

Weems, Nancy, Ben and Patrick-

I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your son and brother! My deepest condolences to you all and your extended family in the Aspen Valley.

No doubt he will never be far away from those who knew and loved him.

Be strong, and one day happy times will return....

Hello Weems and family,

I am so very sorry for your tragic loss.
I thought of you often on a sun drenched Sunday skiing at Cannon Mountain with my 3 litlle kids. The spirit of Wallace will live on in every kid who boots up and heads to the mountains.

God bless!

Weems-I hope you and your family can be strong through this time. I, along with many others, have had much joy and inspiration from your writing over the years and this news will sadden more people than you can know. There are no words.

Sincere condolences to you and your family.

Weems and family, I have been out of touch since Fri and returned to hear the tragic news of your sons passing. Cheryl and I are truely sad and at the same time encouraged by the outpooring of care expressed here by your extended Epicski family. You and your family are at the same time devestated with your loss and rewarded with the support that you so richly deserve. I am sure that it is very rare for a person of this earth to pass to the other side doing what he loves most. Your son has made that journey in style and will forever look upon you and his mother and siblings with honor and respect. You continue to show your true spirit in your posts here.

Our deepest sympathies to all.

With love and respect,
Mark and Cheryl

We're devastated to hear this kind of news, Weems. Makes me wonder why bad things always seem to happen to good people. Our hearts go out to you and your family from all of us in LC.

We've never met, Weems, but my deepest condolences go out to you.

My dear friend, my thoughts and prayers have not left you, Nancy, Ben and Patrick since I learned of the tragedy. I go to sleep with a prayer on my lips, and rise with you in my thoughts. The entire family is holding you up in thought and prayer. Words are completely inadequate, but know that you are dearly loved and your loss is felt by us all. It is my prayer that somehow we can lift some of the pain as we share it with you.

I just heard today from Robin Barnes about your loss. I am stunned! My condolences to you and your family. I am sure that Wallace enriched your life and that of all who knew him.

I am so sorry for your loss. As the days pass...may your saddness and tears be replaced with smiles and laughter as you remember your son's remarkable life.

Weems, I just heard of your tragic loss. Lea and I were both so saddened to hear of Wallace's death. I cannot imagine the depth of your sorrow, and hope that time and many fond memories will eventually provide some solace.

Weems... my thoughts and prayers are with you. i grew up skiing/racing/partying with an older son of yours (we went to rival ski academies). i didn't actually make the connection until a couple of days ago after this tragedy. as a father of 2 young daughters, i can't imagine the pain you are feeling. My deepest condolences to you and your family...

+++++++++++ vibes, I'm speechless. I can't even begin to understand. I offer my condolences to you and your family.

my thoughts are with you and your family, be strong at this time

Tragic. Condolences to you and your family.

just come back from weekend of skiing, then saw this, condolences from our family.

Have been really behind on Epic lately, just heard of your loss.

I can sense the pain you must be in and I know it will be months, if not years, before you've processed all your feelings, fears, worries, etc. I know the horrid sense I would have of being unmoored from my dock if I lost my daughter.

Let's all hug our kids extra hard the next time we see them and send equal hugs to Weems and his family.
post #148 of 217
Weems, please accept my deepest condolences for the loss your family has suffered. It's hard to make sense of what happened. Treasure your moments with him and the time you have with your family.

So Sorry

I hadn't read this thread but found about your son's death today. I am so sorry for your loss. But I totally agree with about being grateful for all the things that one has experienced. It sounds like your son was living the life that he wanted to live and that you were/are so proud of him! And that means a lot, doesn't it?
