It is with sadness that I have learned that Weems's beloved son, Wallace Westfeldt has died Friday morning in a snowboarding accident in Aspen. For all of us on iThou, it was clear how much love there was shared between father and son... how much common spirit and passion for life they both had. Our heart and love goes out to Weems and family during these very difficult times.
With abundant love, on behalf of the community,
From the Rocky Mountain News:
"Aspen native and snowboarder Wallace Westfeldt liked spinners, bonks and card tricks, according to one of his sponsors' Web sites.
He enjoyed powder days, sunny days, park days, big air, small air, winning - and New Zealand, according to another Web site.
But Friday morning, the 22-year-old died just outside his hometown after jumping off a cliff in an out-of-bounds area called Tonar Bowl beyond the Aspen Highlands ski area, according to the Pitkin County Sheriff and Aspen Daily News."
