I have known Tim most of my life, and the Koinis family as long as I can remember. I so wish I could attend, but the rigor of schedule will keep me away. Rest well my friend

I know a lot of years have gone by but still remember when we were kids. All the times we we skiing at bintz's apple mountain, I was a beginner,
(ski's my brother Joe bought me) and Tim was like a pro on those hills. Also, memories of all the swimming we did in your family built in pool... and all the Christmas eve gatherings at grandma koinis's house. I'm so sorry Tim left this earth at such a young age. May he rest in peace.❤😥

I have so many good memories. One is when we were young and all the famlies would get together at the Island for a picnic to celebrate Grandma Koinis's birthday, and who could forget the crazy Christmas Eves when we all piled into Grandma's house. Our family has always been important to us, so it is wonderful that you will be welcome by so many of our family. Rest in peace until we meet again.🕊

I loved hearing his excitement of being on the slopes. Skiing with Sarah ,Stephen, and his friends was currently one of his happy places.
