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.
Remembering the weekend of Hurricane Katrina, 8/28/05 was also a Sunday. A birthday gift was an
airplane tour of Martha's Vineyard, including some crazy trick flying which was pretty exciting for Tim and Shaina ! It was a special "Blue Sky" day.
Another hurricane birthday and we miss you so much, don't have send hurricanes to have us thinking of you, for one so gentle you always manage to bring something "extra" special to all of our lives
Tim was an active participant in the Rosselli Family Vacations. He helped assemble puzzles, played an amazing game of scrabble and introduced us to a few of his favorite movies. Tim took his turn at making a family dinner, and surprised us all with an interesting version of Macaroni and Cheese or should we call it Spaghetti and Cheese. Needless to say we laughed at lot.
We are planning a vacation week in Harwich this summer. As we scouted the area for things to do we spotted a "Tim Morelli Landmark", it is the boat painted with "HOPE". One of our favorite "Tim" photos. That boat is a few miles from our vacation spot. We saw this as a sign that once again, Tim will be with us on vacation.
We miss you Tim............
Vinny and Diane
But love leaves a memory no one can steal*
Miss you, Timmy <3
I think I'll go outside for awhile..
And just smile"
Happy Birthday, Timmy. Miss you more than words can tell
vWe are leaving for NY to enjoy Chris and Jennine's wedding tomorrow, looking forward to seeing such special Tim friends on such a happy occasion. A positive plus on this weekend. It's a beautiful blue sky day for a ride!
Today I will find beauty in the ordinary
Today I will be thankful for all that I have
Today I will enjoy those around me
Today I will smile and think of Tim and what would make him happy today.
At hockey practice yesterday, in the cold, damp air of a Delaware fall afternoon, a bright yellow butterfly fought it's way across the field and past me, it's wings wet with weather. "Hi, Timmy," I called out after it. "So happy to see you."
On a lighter note- the week before TImmy died, we joked about a Red Sox/Phillies World Series and called it. Well, we kinda have that this year with Pedro being on the Phillies. Those Who's your Daddy chants last night woulda made Tim laugh. He'd prob be watching the game with his buddies or family in front of Nick's HUGE TV that used to always "reimage" itself at the WORST times- enjoying a pot of his famous homemade Vegetarian Chili.
Well, in honor of Timmy, I encourage you all to enjoy a nice bowl of Vegetarian Chili and if you order it out or in, be sure to give the waiter or delivery person a HUGE tip- timmy style.
