At Stratford Mr Webber was our princpal and always had time for all of us if we ever needed him. He also attended church with My self and Dorene Deemer Honeycutt. He has a special place in my heart forever.

Dear Allie, Charles, and Mrs. Weber;

I am sorry not to have been able to make it to the funeral home or service for Mr. Weber, but I have been thinking about him fondly and of your family over the holidays. Mr. Weber was a caring, approachable principal of Stratford Junior High, and I have warm memories of interacting with him and of his kind and steady leadership of the school. I remember him working with me and giving me permission to alter the schedules of half the eighth grade class in order to arrange a successful surprise baby shower for English teacher Mary Martin in 1978.

The way he let a student like me be creative and practice my leadership, which required meeting with and coordinating with most of the eighth grade teachers, was unusual and said a lot about his character. He believed in his students, and he put them first and trusted them. He understood that learning happened more than just in the classroom and that the whole school experience was important to educating young minds and helping them develop character.

My condolences are with you, his family, during this time of sadness for you. May the warm memories you have of Mr. Weber help sustain you in your grief and in the days to come.

Much love,

Mary Thomasson Yuhas

Dearest Weber family,

We send our sincerest condolences for your loss. Mr. Weber was a kind and model citizen. I have fond memories of him from my days as a young ATUMC member. I have visions of Mr. Weber and my Dad reuniting in heaven and singing lots of hymns together, reminiscent of their time together in the choir. May he rest in heavenly peace.

All our love,

The Rodriguez Family

As one of my parents best friends, and as my principal at Stratford and close family friend, I wish your family comfort and peace. Charles, Libby and Mary, so very sorry but what a great man and legacy he has left! He is singing in choir with all the other great ones who went before him!

My deepest condolences to you, Mary, Charles & Libby. I have such fond & warm memories of growing up next door to you all. You were great support to our family after my father died. I also remember Tom rescuing out dog, Champ, one day after he had climbed the fence and hung himself. May you find comfort in the love you shared for so many years. Blessings to you all.

Mrs. Weber,
You probably don't remember me but you helped me and my friend James survive the excruciating 2 years at Williamsburg .. 84-86. We could always count on you no matter how bad our day was to be waiting on us at lunch to reassure us that things would be ok and to lovingly encourage us to be the best we could be. In actuality you were probably and remain one of the few adults I knew I could trust. I've thought about you often. In this sad and awful time I hope my words of the positive impact you made in my life during what was probably some of the worst of my life bring you some solace and comfort as your dear husband goes to his rest. I remember you speaking of him as if he was your world and my heart hurts for you and your family losing him especially at this time of year. May God Bless and keep you and provide you even a modicum of the comfort you used to give me. My deepest sympathies on your loss.
With Kind Regards,
Chris Wilkinson
