Tim's music is what gave me a reason to keep on going. He had a hard time during his peak and I felt so bad to not to be able to do anything for him, so I just kept listening to his music. Tim was a sweet, sweet, man. Even though I never got the chance to meet him, he felt present. The best moment with Tim was in 2016 at WKND festival when I proudly carried my “Marry me Avicii” poster. It's a very dear memory for me. A true golden one. Thank you Tim. I hope that you found your peace. <3”
“from A MOTHER
Your music and the story of your life has really affected me. I listen to your music almost everyday and it makes me happy, and sad. Also very close to what is important in life. I think of your parents, as a mother to another. Sometimes the most talented souls also are the most fragile ones. Thank you for the music and the joy and power you have given to so many. All love. You will be remembered.”
“from JACK ROBINSON
Tim, your music would always make me smile. My life revolved around you. I begged Mum and Dad to see you live for your True Tour when you were in Australia. They said no. I was too young. Since then I dreamt of seeing you live one day. As my signed cap begins to fade, To Jack Avicii, each day without you gets lonelier. I will never see you live. I'll just have to keep dancing to your music when no one's watching. I love you Tim. Thanks for everything.”
