Just to let you know you have always been the Champion, even though I could never admit that when we were playing.
You will always be a role model of the best human being ever: the best sun, the best father, the best husband, the best brother, the best uncle, just simply the best.
We will miss you forever, but also remind you as this huge inspiration forever.
Thanks for all.
You brazilian niece
I remember him riding his bike to deliver newspaper, playing baseball, studying hard for medical school, coming home from college with his girlfriend Tammi, getting married with her (I could not be present at this important event but the pictures were sent to me in Brazil), going to his house in Sharon when he and Tammi had tree little and beautiful girls, resting at his jacussy, meeting him in Pittsburgh when Pop was not well, driving through the mountains to take him to a Brazilian beach (he wasn’t comfortable with the curves and height), when he taught my youngest daughter to fly a kite, going with him/Tammi and mom to dinner in a Mississipi boat, eating a special lobster that he made for me in his house (at this time he had the five loved children already), when he picked me up at New Orleans airport and, without saying anything, turned on the seat heater in his car and waited for my reaction. This past June/July, I could be his cooking assistant for one week and he taught me to cut onions, to make chicken soup and meatballs, to seal the food. After that, we shared very precious moments with the family in Pittsburgh at Katie’s wedding. When I came back to Brazil, we had some talks by messenger. These are some of the many other precious memories I have.
Tammi, Briana, Christina, Carissa, Cristopher and Kayla, I do consider you part of my family and I will always support you.
Timothy will always live in our hearts and I do believe he is well, continuing his jorney and that one day we will be together again.
Love you all.
