Weems - so sorry.

I recall your obviously proud posts not that long ago - the kid was a genius on snow. There was no way he got that way without having *huge* amounts of joy and happiness in what he did.

With you as a father he must have had a brilliant life and I know your whole family will look back and share fantastic memories that will make you cry now but smile and laugh together with him in the future.

Our thoughts and deepest condolences

You are a wonderful man, it is so obvious although we've never met.

He is still alive on many levels, remember that.

My deepest condolences,

Being someone that has lost a child, I can confirm for you that there is no more catastrophic event that one can experience. You never fully recover. You may never understand or acknowledge any divine purpose for such a terrible trajedy. But, with some faith, eventually, one can persevere little by little. Take some time off of pretty much everything and try accept what support you can from those closest to your family.

Your family is in my prayers.

Weems, you have given so much to the sport and the community. It is incomprehensible that the sport could take so much from you. Hopefully the outpouring of love and support for Wallace and your family will give you some comfort in your time of grief. Wallace’s love of the outdoors and his spirit is very evident in this thread. I think we all share that love..

Condolences to you and your family. Our thoughts are with you.

Weems we have not yet met, but I feel like I know you from watching your wonderful DVD that I received when I attended ESA Stowe. I send you, your wife, and your surviving sons the strength to face the sadness of your loss, and permission to continue to feel joy despite this loss.

You all are the best. Thank you dear friends from all of us. We've had a houseful of the most beautiful young people all day. All these kids we've known since they were babies.

For those in the neighborhood, this is what I sent to the papers.

Dear Friends,

We have received the worst blow we could imagine and, at the same time, the deepest kindness and warm hearts of the people of this valley. We are moved and grateful to hear, both directly and indirectly, from all of the friends and families and colleagues who have touched by Wallace, and who have been touched by him.

We would also like to thank the Highlands Patrol for your fine work, and the Aspen Skiing Company generally for your support and caring.

Wallace belongs to the valley, and to all the people of the snow and mountains. Therefore we would like to invite you to celebrate him at Snowmass on Tuesday, April 8.

For riders and skiers, we will meet at Sandy Park, off of the Elk Camp lif--by the picnic table. There will be an open microphone, and friends will be able to say a few words if they wish. (And it is fine to just be there and say nothing and cry together.) We will begin at 1PM

Afterwards we will have an indoor gathering to further memorialize and celebrate Wallace. This will PROBABLY be at the Snowmass Conference Center at 3PM, HOWEVER, we will confirm this by Monday. There, we will show slides of Wallace's magic on the snow, and have a few people contribute some more thoughts.

Please feel welcome to come to both or either. Our hearts are torn, but we will heal. As Art Daily told us this morning, "We are all built to persevere." Please come and help us start that.

Nancy, Ben, Patrick, and Weems

Weems, what a wonderful tribute to Wallace. I'm sure he would be pleased. I'll be on the snow one state over and will be thinking of you all at 1pm.
