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.
Every single day a thought of Tim pops into my mind. I have seen rainbows, heard a song, or used my favorite saying "Be Careful" (Tim used to tease me about it!) No matter what, at that moment I know that Tim is with me and I miss him.
So special that so many think of Tim so much, a nice and comforting feeling, sadness softened in sharing and the sense of one of those extra squeeze hugs he specialized in !!
Happy to report that although the timing did not fit for a birthday launch, there is a showing of Tim"s work scheduled for mid October. It will be at the at the office where Rob"s mom works. They devote a wall to display the work of a local artist for about 6 months, and we have selected some great photos; black and white and color. So happy for this opportunity as we know Tim wanted people to enjoy his photos. There is a press release about to appear locally and hope to post on "reports" soon
And thanks for the thoughts throughout the year too, so often coming with serendipitous timing !
(actually got to use that word, I hope correctly)
And one other thing: Remember Paddington? The kitten we found together in the back yard in Hoboken? The one who disappeared from my house the exact day you passed away? He was found this summer. My friend's mom adopted a cat and posted a picture on facebook. And sure enough... it was HIM. I'll never forget the day we found him. I went to work and you texted me: There's mooooore.
I love you, Timmy!
I was thinking the same thing on Sunday! Only Timmy could pull that off! I was in my backyard on Monday morning and there wasn't a cloud in the bluest of skies. A rush of pure joy rushed through me as I noticed the sky. I just smiled and felt the warmth of Timmy kindness once again.
Perfect sky today,
P.S. Awhile back Aunt Marjie and I built a cardboard house for your Texas cousins. I used Gram's pillow cases for curtains. Well worth the effort, Annika's daughter took to it immediately. Same with Tommy's son.
