Dear Byrne cousins,
I just wanted to leave you with my thoughts and prayers today, the ninth anniversary of the terrible day that took Tim away from the world. I will never forget, we will never forget. God bless you all. Love always, Tracy

I am thinking of you today and I am sad about what happened to you and mad on all the life you were not able to live because of some evil people. I know I will see you in my dreams and I cannot wait. I miss you and you the best big brother a guy could have. Life has not been the same since they took you from us.

Love Your Bro,

Well, I'm Timothy's cousin, and I can remember when I used to go to the house and swim in the pool with my dad James Verdon. I think about him often.

*** Posted by Patti (Verdon) Riggans on 2010-06-14 ***

My sister Peggy used to tell me stories of first moving to East Norwich. How, when she first started school in St. Dominic's, some kids were giving her a hard time, till a wonderful young man who was our neighbor stood up for her. How the same young man told her at a dance that she was not allowed to go down to the park where there would be a lot of drinking during a school dance. When she told him that she would go, anyway, he told her no, that he would stay at the dance and make sure she didn't go and get in trouble. She ended up staying at the dance because he said so, even though he went to the park.

Another day when they were Juniors in high school, a whole bunch of the popular girls came in bragging about getting on the JV cheerleading squad. She sat on the other side of the floor, not saying anything. When everyone had settled down, this same young man stood up in front of the whole class and asked Peggy, "Did you try out?"
She responded, "Yes."
"Did you make the JV?"
"No," replied Peggy.
"Did you make varsity?"
"Yes," replied Peggy.
"I thought so," said Timmy, and sat down.
The other girls shut up, and my sister felt great that someone cared about her feelings. Timmy was always there for everyone. The more I've learned about him over the years, the more amazed I am about his goodness. There are very few people who, even when they are not physically here on earth, influence and affect our lives. That is the sign of a saint. Timmy is one of those people.

I am so grateful to God to have had the opportunity to have you in my life. I think of you everyday and how hard you worked to keep the Byrne family together after daddy died. I am in awe of how unselfish you were during your time on earth; your whole focus in life was to take care of your family and to lead by example. When I reflect and look back at my past I have so many wonderful memories of you, I thank God every day for those gifts. One of our last conversations together we talked about one day you would catch up to me and have a few children of your own. I know the type of father you would have been, because you were a father to me when I needed it most. Everyday I look at pictures of you and daddy and thank you for guiding me and helping me. I have no doubt the Lord put you in my life to help keep me on track and to be the best I can be. I am very grateful to be a father of seven beautiful children and a husband to my wonderful wife. We talk about Uncle Tim and Grandpa Pat all the time. I will not let you and daddy down. I will make you proud.

I thank the Lord every day for all the blessings in my life, and I know that two of my biggest blessings are you and daddy, my two guardian angels. I find tremendous comfort knowing you are with Jesus.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

Tim was an amazing person and a great role model to all of us. He is always in my prayers. I think of you guys often and hope you are all doing well.

*** Posted by Jayne Barrett Tanton on 2009-09-12 ***

I am sure you were a wonderful person as your brother Kevin has shared many great things about you. May God bless your family and keep your memory alive.

*** Posted by Tanya Williams on 2009-09-12 ***

Hi Tim,

I am missing you today and wish you were here. Sorry you had to experience such a horrible experience.

Love Your Bro,

*** Posted by Kevin G Byrne on 2009-09-12 ***

Timmy is my most personal connection to 911. To Tim; I never had the pleasure of knowing you personally, but your family says it all. I listen to your name announced on every anniversary of this national tragedy. I can only hope and pray that the love of you for your family sustains them. Charlene; I was so touched at Timmy's memorial to hear of your special relationship with him, your "dates" and the closeness you shared. Kevin, Jimmy, Brian and Kathleen; I always marveled at your strength, quality of character and optimistic personalities. Now I know that Timmy, as well as your awesome Mom, sustained you through the loss of your Dad.
My husband worked 2 blocks away from the Trade Center. Circumstances worked out differently for me. My 2 young sons and husband were safe and untouched that fateful day. I am posting here so that you all realize that I, as well as others, will NEVER forget. I would love an update as to how you all are doing. My email is schubee4@gmail.com. I would love to hear from you. (special "hi" to Kevin.)

Thinking of you today, Tim... miss ya

*** Posted by Derek Ward on 2009-09-11 ***

I think about the Byrne family often and pray for peace in their hearts.

*** Posted by Charlie S on 2009-09-10 ***

Rest in peace. Many died in the tragic event, and some went to heaven, like you, but some went in the other direction, like the people driving the plane. No one will ever get over this, and I myself lost two people in 9/11. Richard Bosco was on the plane, and he is my friend's dad. Also, my other friend's dad was a firefighter who was crushed by the building. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope that you, Timothy, can read this and see your website to see how 2,279 people miss you.

I was thinking of the Byrne family (and all of the 9/11 victims) as I was fortunate enough to grow up with them, go to school with them, and get to know them. And I just wanted to leave a note letting the Byrnes know that you are not alone in your grief. I didn't know Tim well, but I knew Brian and Kevin well, and I knew the kind of person Tim was. I knew he was a strong individual who looked out for his family and did the best he could. In short, he was the epitome of what it means to be a man, specifically a family man, and he did a fine job looking out for his family. Both Tim and his family will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

I came across this tribute while searching for my name, and I just wanted to offer my condolences to the Byrne family. The awful tragedy that occurred seven years ago and a bit still lives in the hearts of those who witnessed it, even if they were in another country (like I am—I live in New Zealand). God bless you all

*** Posted by Tim Byrne on 2009-04-24 ***

Even though I only met you a couple of times while you were much younger, I had to stop by on the anniversary of this terrible day that your family lost you and to let you know that I still think of you and know that your family misses you very much.
a close friend of your cousin, Patricia Verdon

I think of you and daddy everyday, and I know you are looking down and guiding me as you did when you were alive. I miss you so much, I wish I could see you again, throw the football with you again, laugh with you again, and just talk with you again. Unfortunately, life continues to go by without you and now it has been seven years since you died. It still does not seem real to me, it is so hard to think about that day and what happened to you. I know I will never truly understand why you were taken so young with so much left to give, but I do know what you expect from me as a brother, father, son, husband, and friend. You made it very clear to me with your actions in life what it means to be a “Byrne”. I promise you, I will not let you down, I will make you proud and I will make sure the Byrne family continues to move forward. I love you and Daddy so much and will continue to pray for your guidance and support each day. God Bless you TGB.

Love your brother,

*** Posted by Brian Byrne on 2008-09-11 ***

I miss your smile and humor. I will always remember you. God bless your family as they remember you with love and respect. Until we meet again. Love you!

May God bless all the victims of 9-11! I stumbled onto this site searching my name. May God watch over you and your family, Tim. My prayers go out to the Byrne family for the tragic loss.

*** Posted by Timothy Byrne on 2008-04-04 ***

I'm just reading this page today, Jan 17th, 2008. I thank everyone for their kind reflections on Tim. To my cousins, Tracy and Mary Francis, it is indeed a shame that we are not in "some" contact. Tracy, I'm so touched by your son, Timothy Patrick, and I would love to see you and meet him and the rest of your family. My e-mail is byrne.private@poten.com and cell phone 917-822-2329.
