Sept 11 now has an added meaning for us. The date we got our tattoos.
We are not a tattoo family-nothing against them-we just have one or two family members with a tattoo. But the "I heart" message Trevor left us was just too enticing. My daughter talked her dad into getting a tattoo with her and I went along. The more I thought about it, the more I also wanted to get one to always have that memory with me.
Some people get crosses with their loved names, footprints, angels, their loved one's signature or initials-whatever the memory
In order to honor your loved one, you must continue to live. We had buried our son the day before, but decided to go to a concert that we had previously planned to attend with friends. We knew he would have wanted us to go. KISS concert at the MN State Fair. I look a bit rough, but what can one expect. My husband on the other hand took a great photo!
Married for 28 years with three young adult children, one is now an angel. I currently own a jewelry store Julee's Jewelry, in St. Peter, MN. I have a degree in mathematics which is very helpful in the jewelry industry.
