When we originally asked for stories about Tim, we had no idea what we were going to receive. Then they came in multitude, in all forms imaginable from photographs to poems, from songs to anecdotes. They have been funny, heartwarming and educational. We have found so much joy in this form of celebration that we invite you to continue this sharing here.
Last August we were packing up and trying to sort out 40 years of "stuff" , so different this year in the quiet, calm setting on Martha's Vineyard. We were somewhat anxious leaving a home with so many good memories , but we did not leave the memories there. And so nice to see the new owners enjoying and caring so nicely for Tim's home.
Also nice to realize every day that Tim enjoyed many visits here and we can see that in many of his photos ! Seems he always managed to enjoy time here ( and everywhere ), the loop de loop plane ride with Shaina on his birthday here, teaching his sister how to manage his nephew and niece after a class in pediatrics combined with his psychology degree ( though no experience ), searching for photo opportunities and parking car in middle of dark road so headlights would light his subject !
And the many opportunities to share time here with friends , when all Rosselli's ( his other family) were here on vacations, or golfing with brothers ( some unique matches ), Cel and Pete welcoming him and friends to stay , "Bert", Ross, Laura, Shaina all share pleasant, fun memories here. Actually just writing those things makes me realize more to appreciate here.
Guess that's what "the blue sky" is about!
Thanks to so many I have heard from throughout the year and sorry if I did not always respond!!! Will try to improve on that. Hope all of you are well and enjoying life and getting enough hugs !
And hope many of you were able to enjoy the pictures now available.
Love and hugs, Marianne
When Timmy was diagnosed with the lymphoma I prayed and prayed. I even had a young deacon (who was in Rome finishing up his studies to become a priest) lite a candle. On October 31st when I heard he had passed away I said, "Timmy you have weathered the storm all is still and you no longer have to be afraid."
I think of him every Halloween and the next day on All Souls Day. Love you Marianne and Jerry.
