To the family of Mr. Tweed. I want to Express my deepest sympathies . I did not know him personally, but I called and checked on him from time to time. When I first spoke to him his main concern was finding a good doctor to care for his wife . No matter what he was going through he always answered my calls with a smile
I wish I could have done more. I work at USMD, and I tried to be an advocate to he and his wife
My life has been blessed with fond memories of our conversations. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family
If I had known sooner. I could have at least said good bye. I'm happy he is no longer suffering
May God bless you

I got to know Bill when I bought the house next door to him to fix up and rent to a family from my church. The remodel job was quite overwhelming to the point I wasn’t sure where to start. After a couple of weeks hemming and hawing he saw me outside the house with a friend and ask what was the “hold up”. I told him to save money I needed to do a lot of the demolition myself but I didn’t no where to start. He told me to get my tools out of my truck while he went and got some of his. The next thing I know we are ripping out nails and pulling old rotted siding off. Before the sun set that day and after several beers in between we had half the wall off on one side of the house. During the remodel he continued to lend me tools from what seemed a magical tool shed that always had the right tool for the job. He also was ready with a cold beer at the right time. Not too long after his diagnosis he gave me a leather tool belt saying it didn’t fit him anymore from his weight loss. Of course he added that mine was pitiful and I needed a proper one anyway. I believe anyone reading this story will say “Well, that’s Bill Tweed for you”. If a person is judged from his actions and his friends, Bill Tweed was a good man. Yes, he was rough around the edges but that was part of his character and what drew people toward him. About three weeks before he passed I showed Bill I had written on the back of the tool belt, his name, mine and that he had given it to me. He had me come over and sit with him and have a beer. Not a lot was said, but hey... “that’s Bill Tweed for you”.
Thanks for being a friend,

I met Billy about 3 yrs ago, he and I work for the same company in Euless. He was my good friend and I surely will miss him. What an amazing man and one of the nicest men I have ever met. He was so talented and could do anything. I loved drinking a beer and listening to stories he told, some great stories. His stories of his good friends along "Lancaster Street" and of life events. I knew him to be a tender-hearted man who cared a lot about his friends and family. I admired him most for the love he had for Belinda. He took such good care of her every minute of every day and would hear of it any other way. He loved you so much!!
Rest in Peace my sweet, sweet friend and know that I will miss you and think of you often. God Bless you, Amen!!
