Weymoth´s first position as the wonderful young pathologist, fresh out of his PGY5 residency in Anatomic Pathology at The University of Alabama in Birmingham was with me in Lafayette and Abbeville, Louisiana. I had been offered the directorship of the laboratory at the new Women´s and Children´s Hospital in Lafayette. Not being able to be in two places at one time, I called my favorite mentor in the Department of Pathology at UAB, Dr. Sidney Kent. Without a second of hesitation, he told me that the best available candidate was Dr. Weymoth Crowell, and that I would be lucky if he agreed to come down to the very provincial deep South of Louisiana. Weymoth had a heart that was as big as he was, and he made friends easily earning everybody´s respect with his deep intellect, his humble spirit, his "other-directed" interests, his humor, and, within his professional relationships, his wide-ranging fund of knowledge. I have learned more about him from these condolences and memories than from our 3 year association in the practice. He always turned the conversation to your interests and family. This is not to say that he was a "mystery man." He was proud of his mastery of the keyboard that was due to his his mother´s urging and facilitation (she arranged for his training under one of the best music professors in Birmingham). But, he was also a stand-out football player at Ramsey High, so, less than a week before he was due to have a solo performance with the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, he suffered a fractured finger. He told of his lesson in accountability from his mother who told him that he, not she, would have to tell his teacher. Weymoth´s integrity was second to none, and it´s my guess it was the gift of his mother. He loved without reservation. He was so proud of Marva, Paul, and Alex. We heard about their every achievement. Paul´s death devastated Peggy and Weymoth, but they rebounded, no doubt, due to the support of their family and friends in their "village." He stayed in contact with Georgia and me over the years and always wanted news about our kids. After two or three years passed, I was so confident in his capabilities that I offered him the directorship of the lab at Women´s and Children´s in Lafayette. To my great surprise, he turned me down, saying that he had promised his Mom that he would try to be a good "real" doctor who helped those in need. To see if he could do this he was going to join a group in Yazoo City, doing general medicine. I appreciated his honorable intention to keep his promise, but I was happy to learn that he was going to ease back into a practice of pathology. He didn´t just jump back, he worked hard and long at the subspecialties of cytology, derm path, and gastrointestinal pathology-while continuing to work at the clinic. His integrity to do everything the right way is one of my biggest impressions of Weymoth. I often said to my wife, "I wish Weymoth would go into politics." His affability and sincere interest in knowing and helping others would have gotten him elected, but, unlike other politicians that we hear about, his integrity would never change, and our cities, states and, even if his goal would have been higher, the nation would have been so much better. I am so sad that I have lost a good friend. My condolences go out to all the family and friends of this good man. I pray that our Lord will bring you peace and comfort that his time on earth was good for everybody that came to know him.

TW was a friend and fellow medical student at UAB. He was always positive, and taught me much about what character means. I have thought of him and his musical as well as medical skills through the years. My best wishes to his family; he will remain in my heart.

Weymouth and I were both graduates of Ramsay High School in 1969. He was a delightful friend and such a gentleman. He always had something uplifting and encouraging to say when anyone was having a bad day. I have thought of him often through the years, and prayed that he had a blessed life. So sorry for the family's loss.
