Willard Travell Weeks
This site was set up in loving memory of Willard T. Weeks, M.D. (1929 - 2011).
A lovely memorial service for Will was held on Saturday, May 5, 2012 at 10:00 AM at the Mt. Toby Meeting of Friends, 194 Long Plain Road (Route 63), Leverett, MA (This is not a Quaker Meeting Program). The service was from 10 am to 11 am, followed by a coffee and tea reception.
We had a modified Quaker style service where we started with silent meditation, allowed others to speak if they choose, then had a few planned readings and music.
Please see this Memorial Service web page for more detail, including some of the readings.
In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to: the Amherst College Annual Fund, P.O. Box 5000, Amherst, MA 01002-5000 (include his name & class of ‘51), or the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Development Department, 1000 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11225.
