Tell Us About Them:

Timmy was a truly amazing person. He was my big brother, my protector, my best friend. He could walk in to a room and make anyone laugh and smile. He was a sports fanatic, frequently going to Fenway to see the Red Socks and always watching the Patriots. He loved his neice and nephews and for my son with special needs he was his whole world. He loved music and poetry and we loved going to concerts together.


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

We grew up in a family where addiction was the normal. As early as I can remember my brother struggled with addiction. He never wanted to be an addict, he would go to rehab, do good for a while get healthy again. But those demons never left, always hiding out in the back of his mind waiting for the right time to strike. He fought the good fight right until the end. I watched the drugs steal his happiness, his family and friends and finally his life.


What Made Them Smile?

His nephews and neices, his sisters, he loved his family. He loved his guys night sleep overs with his two nephews. He loved his dog Abby, she was his baby.


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

His hugs, he gave the best hugs. His humor, he always knew how to make me laugh when I was upset. Talking to him because he could figure out what I was thinking and feeling before I even knew.


If You Had a Chance to Say One More Thing to Your Angel What Would It Be?

I'm sorry that I couldn't save you, I'm sorry I survived our childhood and you didn't. I love you so much and I'm not mad at you. I know we will see each other again and until then I know your with me always.
