TO THE EDITOR: When I first read the article “Friends Memorialize Tim Fresch,” in Tuesday’s issue, I was left with only one image of Fresch. Even though I never met him, I know that Tim Fresch was much more, and I cannot imagine what it must have been like for his friends and family to read the story.
