About 6 years ago, John Payne called me to ask if I would like to fill in for a member of the Nimrod and Reel fishing club on a charter boat in Manteo. Upon arrival at the house, everyone was there except for John. I was welcomed with open arms and began one of the most enjoyable weekends of my life. This was the first time I met this roup of crazies, but I knew from the start they had somehting special. I never laughed as much as I did that weekend, and when it was time to go home, I was offered a hand shake and a hug from Bill, and he said to me;"Pete, you are welcome to hang with us anytime you like" From that day forward, be it in Manteo, at the Smithfield Parade, at the Station, at the house on the Rapp, at the wine festival or any place else we got togther, I was always greated with a big hug and that ever-lasting smile. I never spent a day with Bill in the last 6 years that was not full of fun and laughter. He and that group of crazies have changed my life forever, and hold a very special place in my heart. I love you Bill. God Bless you, Lisa, Meredith, Ben and everyone you touched in your life. You made the world a better place.

I'll always have countless memories of the fun I had making music with Bill in The Heartache Band, and of spending Spring and Fall weekends with him as part of our fishing "club" for the past 20 years. I couldn't wait to play a gig together or to meet up with him in the Outer Banks -- for starters, he'd always yell "Bruce!!" when I saw him drive up. That was Bill's gift to others -- making you feel special. It was such a big part of who he was, and it was genuine. (Thanks, Bill, for all the sticks of "Big Red" gum you gave me on the boat...those were gifts, too!) I'll also miss his sharp sense of humor, his laugh, and of course, that comforting, ever-present smile as he talked, making us all feel better just to be with him.

I'd share a room with Bill on these trips together, and in catching up with him, I might gripe and whine about this and that in my life, but Bill was always so positive, with the right mix of advice and humor. To me, he'll always be an example of how to live, and how to treat others. My thoughts, prayers, and love go to Lisa, Meredith, Benjamin, and Bill's extended family during this sad time. I loved my dear friend very much, and I will miss him, yet my treasured memories of Bill will always fill my heart.

When I first met Dr. Woessner, I was a pregnant grad student on the verge of moving back in with my parents. He treated me with such compassion and never looked down on me. I remember the day I was "rushed" to the hospital to deliver my baby boy, he said things in a way that I didn't even pick up on the urgency. Later on, when I was married and pregnant with my second child, I remember him assuring me that I could stop calling this child "Abby" (I thought I knew what this one was going to be) because he was "definitely a boy" (and of course chuckling while he said it!)! Or putting up with the crazy rantings of a pregnant lady that had already drove her husband into his man cave. And he was like this--genuine, funny, and straightforward with everyone he seemed to encounter at the office. He was a very rare gem and I consider myself to be very lucky to have had him as my doctor. He will so missed.

Oh you dear Dr.Bill...you are our friend and neighbor at "the river" and you will be very missed. I always took comfort knowing you were on our street and my heart aches for Lisa and the children. Nic, DeeDee and Jon send their love and I can not believe you are gone. We were unable to make your service, but you and your family were in our constant thoughts. Fondly, The Querolo Family

I have the privilege of being a colleague of Bill's at Women's Health Care. I would give him morning check out after being on call, as Wednesdays were always his coveted call day. I could give him the most horrendous check out and he would inevitably say "I'm on it.". Although, I could not see him over the phone, I know he likely had that big, unforgettable smile when he said it. He truly loved what he did and his patient care always showed that. He was an amazing physician, husband, father, and friend. We will miss you, Bill. And Wednesday check outs will never be the same... Heartfelt hugs and prayers to your family.

I have had Dr. Woessner for the past 10 yaers as my doctor, after I moved here from NY. I loved his bedside manner and the care he showed his patients. He will be missed!

Dr. Woessner delivered my son 22 years ago and almost delivered my granddaughter 8 years ago. He was such an amazing man with a warm smile. I will keep the family in my prayers and I feel so blessed to have known him.

In life you meet people and either you change there life or they change yours. Dr Woessner (Wazz) has CHANGED my life! I started working at RRMC in 2005 and have gotten to know Wazz well. His smile brighten the nurses station. His laugh made you chuckle and feel good inside. As a Woessner Wednesday nurse, I looked forward to coming to work on Wednesdays because no matter how busy, hectic, or even bizarre the day got at some point we would hear Wazz walking down the hall whistling or humming. He was a breathe of fresh air. In 2008 he delivered my nephew and we were honored to have him add to our family. I could come to him with questions about anything from nursing, raising a little boy, to being a good spouse. I will miss him and his singing in the OR.

Mrs. Woessner, Meredith, and Benjamin hold onto your precious memories during this holiday season when you start to miss your husband and dad. I will continue to pray for your family. Thank you for sharing such a special blessing with us.
