Is A Tattoo For You?
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
Honor Their 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.
