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.

I am a friend of Tim's from college and recently came across this site again. I am thinking of both Tim and Nick. Two strong and courageous men, united again as angels. God bless the Morelli and Rosselli families.

Thinking of Timmy today.

Posted by mom on Sat Oct 31, 2015 12:03 pm

Hello to all !

So many thoughts and things I would like to say that I usually give up trying to sort it all out.
It is an exceptionally beautiful day on Martha"s Vineyard today and makes me reflect on all the beautiful photography Tim shares with us all.
Then my mind jumps to all the beautiful , thoughtful and kind friends Tim shared with his family, we think of you all every day and are contiinually grateful for all the support and happiness you have given.
I miss hearing funny stories he shared (surely only a fraction of what there are); and still love and deeply aappreciate hearing from all. Hoping to improve response time !
So weird this Halloween "coincidence", actually based on Holy day, but filled with fun , laughter and candy !
Will now attempt to post picture on the Smiles section, hope you will too. Love, aka mini

To the Morelli Family,

Thinking of Tim today and sending our love and happy thoughts to his family and friends. Tim was very special to our family and we spent many fun times with him in Brooklyn and upstate New York. Not a day has gone by that I have not said a simple prayer for him; I just know he is watching over his loved ones. We are all very lucky to have known him and to have shared a small part of his "blue sky".

Tim - Always in our hearts, always loved and never to be forgotten.

With love,
Susan & the Brereton Family

I've been reading a lot of childrens books lately and Frederick by Leo Lionni makes me think of Tim. I know he would love the book (maybe he did? I don't remember) and he reminds me of Frederick. I recommend reading the whole book but I figured I would share the poem at the end.

Who scatters the snowflakes? Who melts the ice?
Who spoils the weather? Who makes it nice?
Who grows the four-leaf clovers in June?
Who dims the daylight? Who lights the moon?

Four little field mice who live in the sky.
Four little field mice...like you and I.

One is the Springmouse who turns on the showers.
Then comes the Summer who paints in the flowers.
The Fallmouse is next with walnuts and wheat.
And Winter is last...with little cold feet.

Aren't we lucky the seasons are four?
Think of a year with one less...or one more!"

Cousin Mary B. In NYC where Timmy is everywhere :)

"It's a beautiful morning, I think I'll take a walk outside and just smile".........an unbelievable blue sky........ some of the things that remind me of Tim. Always with me, forever in my heart.
Love to all the Morelli's

This past year, I went to Boston, and I drove to Timmy's house in Holbrook, not realizing the Morelli's had moved to the Vineyard. But that's the last place we hung out. At that house. And the man who answered the door talked to me so sweetly and kind that it was as if Timmy was still there in some way. I pictured him with his putter in hand, tapping a golf-ball around the perimeter of the house that last day we saw each other, three months before his passing. This is a link to a story about our summer in Maine in 2005. http://tclj.toasted-cheese.com/2012/12-1/the-grace-of-grass-by-shaina-rafal/ I returned there 2 years ago, and while on the beach we kayaked on, a butterfly flew up to me. And I knew it was him. I still feel him. Thank goodness for that. Miss you. Will be thinking of you so so much tomorrow, listening to music and looking at your photography. Thanks for being you. And hello to all the Morellis.

Listening to Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald sing "They Can't Take That Away from Me," and it makes me think of Timmy. Every single line. It's the little memories I have of him all rolled into one song:

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea.
The memory of all that -
No, no - they can't take that away from me.

The way your smile just beams.
The way you sing off-key.
The way you haunt my dreams.
No, no - they can't take that away from me.

We may never, never meet again
On that bumpy road to love
Still I'll always,
Always keep the memory of...

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced until three.
The way you've changed my life.
No, no - they can't take that away from me
