Tim, Words are just not enough to tell you how much I/we miss you. I just want you to know how much I love being your stepfather. You and your brother Steve have brought so much meaning to my life its hard to express. One of many favorite memories I have is the trip we took together as a family to Las Vegas and both you and Steve were small enough to fit in the back seat of our 911s, Porsche. We sure had a great time. I am so proud of what a talented musician/bass player. I sure look back fondly at the times you and your brother would be jamming together in the bedroom, Rocking the whole house. There is so much more to say and there not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you. I would like to finish this with the words I spoke to you at your funeral.
My Dearest Timothy,
My Son, What word or words can I say to you now. I Do have one word, that just came to mind as I sat here in your room. SHALOM, It is one word with many meanings.
One Meaning is for a greeting, simply HELLO. Another meaning is , PEACE and LOVE, It is also a way to say GOODBYE.
My Son, we’ve talked about many things together over the years, as I watched you grow from a little boy, too one of the most caring and wonderful young men in this world. It blew me away what a talented artist and musician you were and you sure did know your way around a computer.
My son, you had many questions that I tried to answer, and some of your questions were ones that no person could answer about life in this world of ours.
And now that you’ve gone to heaven, you’ve got all the answers, that you’ve been searching for. But, I can’t hear them from you, for GOD only reveals them the moment you join him in Heaven. And I’ll just have to wait here awhile.
Timothy Brian Ayriss, As I look up into the sky, whether it is Day or night, I’ll think of you my son.
Timothy Brian Ayres, with the first star I see in the sky at night, I’ll say SHALOM !!!, Hello my Son, You outshine them all tonight.
Timothy, I say Shalom to you right now, I wish you PEACE, for you are in GODS Heavenly Light, forever young.
SHALOM my Timothy, I Love You, Tim.
And, for now, I Say a final Shalom, as I bid you GOODBYE……for now, that is until I see the first star in the sky tonight.
