"His life was really based on what he could do to enhance the lives of others," said friend Cynthia Gardner. "Most importantly his wife and daughter Zoe."
There's a saying that goes something like, "A measure of a man's worth can be taken by those who loved him"...... something to that affect. Clearly William Weems worth was high as all the messages left for him are full of love from others. Here are some of the those messages from legacy.com:
Bill, I was always struck by what a wonderful person you were when we worked together in the production business in Boston. You were a producer on one of my shoots and it was a great experience. And I remember the day I saw your name scroll across my TV. It filled me with rage and anger that someone as good as you could be taken in such a way. It still does. But your goodness will always win out over that event. It was an honor to know you. Chuck Koelsch, Providence, Rhode Island
Bill, I think of you every day, but more today--so kind and so thoughtful--and so missed in this world.
Thinking of you today, Weemsie... I will never forget you... miss you... Ann McKallagat, MassachusettsMay 02, 2011
Bill, It's been nine years now, and seems like yeaterday. Can't imagine what you would be up to today, but no doubt putting smiles on many faces. Rest in Peace "Joneseee" it was you who were always PLUM. Dan Misko
I hope, in some way, today's news allows to have a little peace.
Dear Bill, There have been many times that I have thought of you and the work we did in Boston...you were one of a kind... Tony Mariano
Dear Lisa and Zoe, I still think of you and your husband and father from my days when I owned Videoscope in Marblehead. I hope time has somehow helped you to heal. Sincerely, Stan Rusnak
Stan Rusnak, Essex, Massachusetts
I did not William but his name jumped off the t.v. screen when I first saw it because it is a rare name and I first thought it was someone in my family. In a way you are as are all the victims but it was your name that connected you to me at first glance. Can it be seven years?? My thought s and prayers are with you and your family on this another 9/11, rest softly. Scott Weems, Reston, Virginia
Bill was a producer for about 10 spots I made and he and I were in constant contact for about four years in the late 90's. I counted him a one of my good friends in the profession and he was a bright light in my life and the lives of many of my friends. Funny, Smart and a hard worker who loved what he did. I think of him often and particularly today. I miss him and I offer my very best, my thoughts and prayers to Lisa, and his kids, family and friends. Todd Root, Hartford
Bill was my movie buddy. We must've seen 100 flicks together. I still glance over at the empty seat next to me sometimes and can't believe my friend is gone. I miss him terribly. Dan Lincoln,
