Mrs. Weidman & children, Can’t tell you in so many words, how he will be missed. I considered them to be my 2nd set of parents. They considered me their “blond daughter”, hope you didn’t mind that. Always invited to Therese’s house for the major days in the year. Couldn’t write before this. But now I have the great privilege of being with Mom, three days a week & I think we’re both enjoying it. Please know that I love you dearly & both of my Dad’s now know each other up in heaven! Love, hugs & prayers to you all, Buzzy

I am very sorry for your family’s loss; Mr. Weidman added a lot to our community; I always honked to support him on the corner on my way to work; God gave him great courage and conviction. Of course, I knew him as our Warwood postman and the dad of all the little Weidman friends at Corpus Christi. Wonderful memories and glad he was my mail carrier! He always whistled and smiled at everybody!

I just today was made aware of the passing of Mr. Weidman with the wonderful article in the Wheeling paper. I had been out of town the past few days. Although I only had the privilege of his company on select occasions ( running in to him at the golf course in the late afternoon) it was always a distinct pleasure. He was a man who exuded a quiet sense of calm and contentment. I am sure that it was partly to do with the wonderful family that he and Mrs Weidman raised. He was a fine gentleman and a true friend of Christ. May he rest in peace with the souls of the faithfully departed!
God Bless!
